Basic Bournemouth Information:
Bournemouth have won 3, lost 2 & drawn 1 of their last 6 matches, scoring 7 goals &
conceding 6 goals – currently 9th in the form table
They’ve won 3 & lost 3 of their last 6 home matches (winning 3 of the last 4)
They are currently 7th in the championship (on 56 points) after playing 35 games, scoring
50 goals & conceding 34 goals
Only 3 other teams have scored more goals. Solanke & Stanilas are joint top scorers with 10
goals, with Danjuma on 8
They signed Ben Pearson, ex-Barnsley loanee, from Preston North End in January 2021,
adding extra bite to their midfield
Basic Barnsley Information:
The Reds are unbeaten in 10 matches, having won a record 7 on the trot until the 0-0 home
draw with Derby County on Wednesday, scoring 13 goals & conceding 3 goals, & are
currently equal 1st (with Cardiff City) in the 10-game form table
We have won 3 of our last 4 away matches, scoring 6 goals & conceding 1 goal
We are currently 6th in the championship (on 58 points) after playing 35 matches, scoring
42 goals & conceding 37 goals.
Scorers include Cauley Woodrow with 10 goals, Alex Mowatt (6 goals), Callum Styles
(4 goals), Michal Helik (4 goals) with recent signings Carlton Morris (4 goals) & Darryl
Dike (3 goals)
Past history in the last 10 matches between the clubs since 1999:
Barnsley have won 2 games, Bournemouth 4 games with 4 draws
The reverse fixture at Oakwell was a resounding 4-0 victory to Bournemouth (in front of the
Sky cameras)
This should be a closely-contested match between 6th & 7th in the Championship. Both teams have
a strike force that create problems for the opposition. Both have strong defences that will need to be
at the top of their game to contain quick, powerful forwards.
The lads in the Red All Over YouTube show have slightly differing views with their predictions for
this game:
Joe & Andy – 2-1 to Barnsley
Alan & Big Kev – 1-1
Rob – 1-0 to Barnsley
