Peterborough United form and stats

3 victories, 3 draws and 3 defeats. That’s what Peterborough United, who have the most conceded goals (38) in Championship, have to build on here at Weston Homes Stadium in the Championship. When Peterborough United hosts teams that live in the bottom of the table (like Cardiff City, Birmingham City, Hull City, Reading, Derby County, Bristol City and Peterborough United), they have won 2 of 4 matches! Peterborough has three losses from their three previous games and the tension is increasing in the dressing room for both the manager D. Ferguson and the players.

Times are rough for the home team, having gone 276 minutes without scoring a league goal. J. Clarke-Harris was the last player to find the net.

Peterborough lost their last game at Blackburn Rovers (placed 7th) after a 0-4 scoreline. As you see from the result above, Peterborough suffered greatly in their last game. Thankfully the team has a new chance to prove themselves in this one. The gifted forward Siriki Dembélé outdid all teammates in that game and managed a match rating of 7.95 out of 10. Dembélé hit two key passes, dribled past the opponent 8 of 8 times and had 30 successful passes (of 36 total).

A defeat was the result before that one, 0-2 away at Stoke City.

This is expected to be a close game, with Peterborough United perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Peterborough United as a small favourite), we find twelve games. Peterborough United has won six of these, drawn two and lost four.

The Peterborough United fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 12 in 9 matches. On the other hand, Peterborough have conceded 10 goals.

Barnsley form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Barnsley so far with only 3 points returning home. The records show 0-3-6 (win-draw-lose). A depressing five defeats in a row for Barnsley in their away games. Unhappy days, as the last time they avoided a loss on the road was versus Stoke City.

Barnsley failed to get anything from their last game, a Championship home match vs Swansea City (placed 9th) that ended with defeat 0-2. Defender Jordan Williams was the best team player with a rating of 7.45. Williams won 10 of 10 duels.

A 1-4 defeat away at Fulham before that.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Barnsley playing away and similar expectations, we found 14 relevant matches. Results were four Barnsley wins, two draws and eight defeats.

The attacking power of Barnsley when travelling is not overwhelming with 6 goals scored from 9 league matches away. Barnsley struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 17 goals conceded from these games.
