Peterborough will host Barnsley in 19th round of English League One. Peterborough currently occupies 9th position at the table, they ended previous season at same position and now are coming to this match after three consecutive victories, one in FA Cup over Burton and two in league. It seems that they are now in best shape since new season started and for sure will give their best here to continue good results and reach at least 6th position which leads them into play off for promotion. Peterborough is most effective team in league and they showed really great attacking skills and in 18 matches scored 39 goals. They were eliminated from Johnstone's Paint Trophy and Capital One Cup and must try to achieve good results at least in FA Cup. Peterborough playing very well in front of their fans and in this season they suffered only three defeats at home in league matches. Defenders Gaby Zakuani and Shaun Brisley will miss this match due to injuries while also defenders Ricardo Santos and Jack Baldwin are suspended.
Barnsley on the other hand are in really bad shape since this campaign started, at one moment they had series of seven consecutive defeats. They are now in relegation zone after 18 rounds with 17 points and it will be very hard for them to achieve positive outcome against very confident Peterborough. Previous season Barnsley ended at decent 11th position and they would be more than satisfied to repeat that results, but now they are struggling to get out from relegation zone. Barnsley won in last round against Oldham and that victory was more than necessary, now will for sure give their best to at least save their net. They showed decent goal scoring skills but must try to improve their defense since in 18 matches conceded 30 goals. Barnsley has negative record against Peterborough, in last four matches they divided points only once and suffered three defeats.
Peterborough is playing great attacking football and for sure won't change their tactics for this game, they are in good form and now are favorites here, while Barnsley is in very bad shape, they must try to change something in their squad and improve their form, otherwise they won't be able to get out from relegation zone, I expect open and interesting match here and over 2.5 goals to be scored.
