Match Preview

Still without a win since matchday one, Barnsley lost 1-0 last time out, thereby adding to a growing tally of games ending with under 2.5 total goals this season (six). In turn, the toothless ‘Tykes’ remain the lowest goalscorers of the league, striking first in just two Championship matches this season.
They can recover from setbacks though, as whilst only one other Championship team has conceded more league goals than Barnsley within the first 15 minutes of play, the ‘Tykes’ have only trailed at half-time in two of eight matches.
Hunting better fortunes themselves, Brentford are winless in two league matches. Almost as ponderous and loyalty-testing as their hosts, the ‘Bees’ have scored first in just two matches. Additionally, seven of their eight league games have produced under 2.5 goals in total.
As well as trailing at half-time in three Championship games this season, Brentford have gone into the break behind in 50% of their last four H2H meetings with Barnsley. On the subject of H2Hs, each of the last six meetings at Oakwell have produced under 2.5 goals.
Players to watch: Across all tiers, three of Barnsley’s last five home league games not to yield defeat have seen Cauley Woodrow score inside the 31st-45th minute period.
Scorer of Brentford’s only away goal this season, Ollie Watkins has struck four of Brentford’s five goals so far, with two goals coming in either half.
Stat attack: Across all tiers, nine of Barnsley’s 15 home league matches this calendar year have produced over 2.5 goals (total).
Four of Barnsley’s last five league games have produced over 12.5 corners (total).
Three of Brentford’s last four Championship away games have seen three or more cautions.
Eighteen of the last 25 H2H meetings have produced under 2.5 goals (total).
