Barnsley - Crystal Palace

Barnsley lost their game against direct rival, Blackpool 0:1 at home and drop under the line for relegation. At saturday,they had no play or goal opportunities, conceded a goal in 70.min and till the end just two half-attempts by Adam Hammill. Some new players joined the club in January. It resulted with seven points from three games. After that, they lost the breath and in the next three games just one point. The good thing is they have three games less than the others, so situation still isn't dramatic. Boss Simon Davey said:"This situation is nothing new to us. It is not nice but it is not new. We are fine." He also, promised the changes in team. He can't count on midfielder Diego Leon who is injured, while iranian midfielder Andranik Teymourian and defender Stephen Foster are suspended.

Eagles surprisingly defeated Swansea, at saturday 3:1 away, and confirmed the impression they can play only very good or very bad. After the hosts hit the post, Palace woke up and took a lead with Victor Moses goal, Jose Fonte increased the different and in stoppage time Shefki Kuqi scored third. They're in the safe middle, ten points from play-off and the same from relegation. They look in very good mood, but the question is luck of motivation. Palace will again be without key defender Claude Davis when they travel to Oakwell tonight.

Eagles are very unpredictable, but I don't think they can win on the road twice in a row. Reds feel fire under the feet. Another bad performance will put their head on the block. I expect their full aggression from the first whistle. Bookies see them as outsiders and offer big odd, about 2.60. I take it and my money goes on home win!
