Say it quietly, but Aston Villa might finally be finding some form after a long period of poor results under Steve Bruce. With three wins on the spin and the likes of Robert Snodgrass among the best players in the league at present, the Villans will entertain a Barnsley side in a rather dour run of form.

With one win in their last six and only 5 points clear of the bottom 3, Barnsley knows that any kind of result up at Villa would be a huge coup for them. Will they get it, though?

For the home side, they come into this one on a decent run of form themselves. A surprise loss to Peterborough in the FA Cup aside, they’ve won three on the spin in the league without conceding a goal, winning at Boro, leathering Bristol City at home 5-0 and beating Forest 1-0 in their last outing.

This game is one that they know a result is needed in. 39 goals in 27 games is not a great return for a promotion candidate, but we expect Villa could rack up the goals here against a porous Barnsley side.

Despite having 13 shots per game on average, Barnsley is a side that doesn’t score many; just 27 in 27. This has been a major part of their problems this year, with many of their players simply not looking up to this level at times.

In Ethan Pinnock and Adam Jackson, they have a decent defensive pairing. Liam Lindsay has done OK for the club, too, but overall it’s all-defensive talents that stand out for the side. Tom Bradshaw is the clubs top scorer with 8, and we expect that the Tykes will struggle to outscore a Villa side who have been decent in front of goal and respectable defending their own.

Despite arguably being a bit more gung-ho than their illustrious opponents, we expect Barnsley to struggle here. Villa is finding form, and know that a win could here see them move ahead of Cardiff with the right results elsewhere.

An interesting match-up, but one that is likely to see Villa get the result they need. For Barnsley, we expect the trouble to continue.
