The Addicks v The Tykes

The Addicks made it seven matches unbeaten with a 2-1 win over Hull on Tuesday in a fiery encounter, and we currently sit in second.
This Saturday we welcome Barnsley to the Valley, but they too are flying high, a real surprise package so far, they currently lie in fourth.

The Addicks Team News:

The Addicks are without Lloyd Sam as the winger begins a three-match suspension after the FA failed to overturn this after an appeal, Jerome Thomas, who was back in the squad during the week could replace him.
Svetoslav Todorov is pushing for a recall but with Luke Varney and Chris Iwelumo in goalscoring form recently he will probably have to settle for a place on the bench.
Only Ben Thatcher, who could return after the international break is out.

Player to watch: Jerome Thomas

If he gets the nod in place of the suspended Lloyd Sam this is a gift-wrapped opportunity that he will have to take, as he is very much in the last chance saloon at the Valley.

The Tykes Team News:

The Tykes have no fresh injury or suspensions but Istvan Ferenczi is still sidelined, so Miguel Mostto or Kim Christensen will partner Kayode Odejayi.

Player to watch: Brian Howard

With six goals so far this season for the Tykes from midfield he is the third top goalscorer in the Championship, so will need to be watched.

Match Facts & Stats

The last meeting between the Addicks and the Tykes was at The Valley in August 1999 and with a Clive Mendonca hat trick the Addicks won 3-1.
The Tykes have never beaten the Addicks away (be this at the Valley, Selhurst Park or Upton Park.)

Ref Watch:

Referee: P J Joslin
Assistants: I J Cooper and G S Evetts
Fourth Official: I F Bentley

Match Prediction:

Anyone that thinks this match will be easy is seriously wrong. The Tykes ended Bristol City's unbeaten record during the week, so although we are at the Valley and we have never lost a home match against the Tykes I would not be banking on our unbeaten home record not ending. However, even with this said if we are to achieve automatic promotion back to the Premier League home matches are so important so I think the unbeaten run against them, and our undefeated home run in the Championship will continue with an Addicks win.

Next Fixture:

Wolves at Molineux a week Saturday.

We should win, but this will not be taken for granted, if it is then we could be in some trouble but the players and Alan Pardew are too professional for this to happen.

I wouldn't say it'll be easy horseworrier, if anyone has that attitude we'll be in for a tough day. I think it'll be an Addicks win though.
