Vital Reading Season Preview – Barnsley
Club – Barnsley
Founded – 1887
Nickname – The Tykes
Ground – Oakwell (Capacity: 23,009)
Manager – Keith Hill
When we face each other? – Sat 20th August (H) Sat 17th March (A)
Last season finish – 17th – Championship
Season Preview – Barnsley have had not had much to shout about over the past fews years following their promotion from League One in 2005, with mainly lower mid-table finishes and often shift of managers.
After the resignation of Mark Robins, they have appointed Keith Hill after a fine 5-year spell with Rochdale that saw them promoted to League One in 2010.
Unfortunaely, I believe it may be another stuggling season for the Tykes unless they really delve into the market, as they have no real stand out players that can change a game.
My Prediction – 20th
