With the focus firmly on today’s fixture at Oakwell, we take a look at the game from a statistical perspective.
Hull City will be searching for back-to-back away league wins at Barnsley for the first time since January 1989. A Fraizer Campbell goal saw the Tigers register a 1-0 win on our previous visit to Oakwell in October 2017.
The Tigers have won four of their last six league games (W4 D1 L1), as many victories as in their previous 18 Championship matches (W4 D6 L8).
Grant McCann’s side have scored the first goal in five of their last seven league fixtures (W4 D1 L2)
Jarrod Bowen has been involved in more Championship goals than any other player in the league this season (16 – 12 goals and 4 assists), scoring or assisting on average every 101 minutes this campaign.
Barnsley have registered just two league victories in their last 10 clashes with Hull City, with both wins arriving at Oakwell (W2 D2 L6).
The Tykes are without a clean sheet in 12 games – with the last time they prevented an opponent from scoring coming in a goalless draw with Wigan Athletic at the end of August.
Barnsley’s three previous league Yorkshire derbies this season have all ended in defeat – against Sheffield Wednesday (0-2), Leeds United (0-2) and Huddersfield Town (1-2).
Both teams have scored in nine of Barnsley’s previous ten Championship fixtures, which has seen the Tykes pick up four points (W0 D4 L6).
Meetings (115) in all competitions between the two sides, with the Tigers winning 45, drawing 23 and losing 47.
There has been less than 2.5 goals scored in five of the last six meetings between the two clubs – with the Tigers’ 3-1 win at the KCOM Stadium in April 2012 being the one exception.
