Recent respective form guides

Barnsley's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Tykes have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Watford's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. The Hornets's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Barnsley find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 6 points from their 6 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Barnsley at home in recent games, and, though we cannot see a run starting here, we do think the Tykes will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
