Derby – Barnsley Preview

  • In the wake of the EFL demanding an “urgent update” from the administrators on the club’s funding, Derby County suffered a third-straight league loss (0-1 vs Cardiff) last time out. That defeat left the ‘Rams’ eight points away from safety with 11 games left, but boss Wayne Rooney promised “it’s not over yet”, and a win in this relegation six-pointer will see them swap positions with third-bottom Barnsley.
  • A return to Pride Park is probably the tonic Rooney’s men need, as Derby have lost just once across their last seven Championship home games (W5, D1, L1). Home fans in attendance may feel the early jitters though, with the ‘Rams’ leading at the break in just one of those seven games.
  • After a 2-1 success in this season’s reverse fixture, Barnsley can win consecutive H2Hs for the first time since 1983/84 – which is also the last occasion on which they pulled off a league double over Derby. They travel with confidence after a 3-2 win over playoff hopefuls Middlesbrough last time around.
  • While that run has increased the prospects of Barnsley extending their three-season Championship stay, there’s no hiding from a dire away league record (W1, D4, L12). That sole win came in their last Championship trip though, and a repeat result will also give Barnsley their first-ever back-to-back away league H2H victories after winning 2-0 here last season.
  • Players to watch: Derby won’t mind a late intervention from Colin Kazim-Richards, with his last two Championship goals arriving beyond the 80th minute. Barnsley will hope to have settled the game by that time, with Amine Bassi looking to impress again after scoring two and assisting one of their last three Championship goals.
  • Hot stat: Barnsley’s last five Championship games have aggregated three or fewer cards.
