Match Preview

  • Currently on their equal-best Championship campaign since 2011/12, Barnsley enjoy an admirable unbeaten record as a home league favourite (W4, D2) since the end of the opening week. In conceding just three first-half goals at home this Championship season, they have a clear key to success at Oakwell.
  • Even so, Barnsley have opened the scoring in just five of their nine Championship home fixtures to feature over 0.5 goals, with their most recent 2-1 home victory being only the second of those nine to not be won by the team to register the first goal. Interestingly, their last three Championship home wins have all seen them fail to score inside the first 30 minutes.
  • Huddersfield’s current five-game winless run away from home (D2, L3) includes two defeats of at least three goals. Their last seven Championship road trips have seen the HT result replicated at the final whistle, illustrating the need to improve upon a Christmas equal-high ten first half away goals conceded – six of them in the 31st minute-HT period.
  • This fixture has not lacked entertainment recently, with six of Huddersfield’s last seven H2H meetings vs Barnsley seeing both teams score, and exactly one team scoring before HT. Overall, Huddersfield’s second-tier league record away to Barnsley is poor (W7, D4, L13), but the Terriers’ first goal here would be their 100th in all competitions vs the ‘Tykes’.
  • Players to watch: Alex Mowatt recorded Barnsley’s first goal in their last home meeting with Huddersfield. Meanwhile, Isaac Mbenza remains Huddersfield’s only player to score in at least two of their last seven Championship road trips.
  • Hot stat: Including four of the last six, ten (15.63%) of the 64 all-time competitive H2Hs have ended 2-1 to the home side on the day.
