SKY BET: Boro v Barnsley betting preview

23 April 2014

Barnsley are aiming for victory at mid-table Middlesbrough on Saturday at the Riverside. 

Defeat at Derby on Easter Monday leaves Danny Wilson's men needing victory at the Riverside followed by another over Harry Redknapp's QPR at Oakwell a week later to stand a chance of avoiding the drop.

The Reds will take heart from a 3-2 win over Boro last October when top scorer Chris O'Grady bagged a double as the Tykes stormed into a 3-0 interval lead. 

O'Grady is 12/1 to repeat the feat on Wearside and 13/2 to bag what could be a crucial first goal. 

Paddy McCourt was also on the scoresheet that day and Sky Bet offer 11/2 that he scores in a Barnsley win. 

The outright markets see Boro at 21/20 for the win with the draw at 13/5 and Barnsley available at 12/5. 

The Tykes are considered 9/1 shots to be still in the Championship next season. 

Odds subject to change
