Barnsley is ranked at 14th place with 19 points and comes after three wins and two losses over the last five matches. After losing two in a row they managed to bounce back last week with a 1-2 win on the road against Birmingham. Currently they sit seven points behind the play offs zone and need to avoid a defeat here.
In the last five matches they have scored seven goals averaging at least a goal per game and finding the back of the net in four occasions. Only in the loss against Brentford they failed to score. Woodrow is leading their offensive side with five goals and three assists so far.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, is ranked at the second spot with 27 points and comes after three wins a draw and a loss over the last five matches. They were on a three-game winning streak before drawing 2-2 against a modest Rotherham and making things worse with a 3-2 loss against Preston.
With 25 goals scored until now Bournemouth has the second-best attack in the league and in the last five matches they have scored a total of 13 goals averaging at least two goals per game. Even on the road they have scored at least a goal in four of the last five duels. Solanke and Stanislas are firing up lately and already scored nine goals together.
In conclusion, I think both teams can score at least a goal in this one. Barnsley will try to get the best out of this encounter since they are at home and considering Bournemouth failed to keep a clean sheet in four of the last five games, I expect them to score. Bournemouth has players with Premier League experience and I guess they could be one of the teams aiming for direct promotion this season.
