Our prediction for this Championship match:
After suffering a shocking 3-2 loss to Preston in midweek, Bournemouth will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship when they take on Barnsley at Oakwell on Friday evening. The Cherries aim to overtake out-of-form Norwich in top position in the standings, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Barnsley. Joshua King is still self-isolated following a positive test for coronavirus, but he is rated doubtful for Friday’s clash.
Carter-Vickers and Stacey are both sidelined with injury. The Tykes, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Birmingham City. Barnsley sit in the middle of the table, but they are surely capable of sharing the spoils with Bournemouth, who failed to impress in the midweek defeat to the Lilywhites. Both Benjamin and Jordan Williams are sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Elliot Simoes is a major doubt.
