Middlesborough 4/7 to beat Barnsley in Saturday Championship clash

Competition: Championship
Market: Middlesborough to beat Barnsley
Odds: 4/7 @ Bet 365

Still firmly in contention to secure a playoff position come the end of the season, on Saturday afternoon Tony Pulis’ Middlesborough side will be looking to shore up their chances of booking a return to the Premier League when they welcome a Barnsley side who find themselves in their own battle the other end of the table.

For the hosts on Saturday afternoon, Tony Pulis’ revitalized Middlesbrough side will be glad to know that they’re still in prime position to occupy one of the lucrative playoff spots come May. Currently sat sixth in the Championship table, Boro will know that they’re only three points away from dropping all the way down to 10th and the former West Brom boss will know the importance of keeping up their recent form this weekend. Coming off the back of a 1-0 win over Birmingham in midweek, Boro have now won their last two games on the bounce and are now unbeaten in their last four outings.

As for the visitors, Barnsley have intrusted Jose Mourinho’s former coach José Morais to help guide the Tykes away from the Championship drop zone. With just one win in their last 10 matches, Barnsley now find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle, sat in 21st position, Morais’ side are now just one place above the drop zone and remarkably, the Tykes have not picked up a victory over any time above them in the table since September 2017.
