Tomorrow, Newcastle United will play Barnsley in the Championship. Looking to continue their winning streak, Newcastle United will could push past Norwich in the standings.

Barnsley’s mission is something a bit different. They’ve lost two of their last three matches, drawing the other one, and have not been nearly as productive when it comes to scoring goals.

With Dwight Gayle’s prolific work at scoring goals, Newcastle United has the highest goal differential in the league. That isn’t going to change anytime soon, and if it weren’t for Dwight Gayle, Newcastle United may be playing for the same thing Barnsley is.


We’re getting to the point of the Championship where those at the top of the table make it an interesting battle where as those at the bottom are battling relegation. A good start early is positive, and that’s exactly what Newcastle United has done.

With Barnsley’s offensive struggles, Newcastle finds itself in a strong position to succeed today against the club. Both Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie have been cleared to play and that will add a lot defensively and creatively to the match today.

Newcastle United take on Barnsley at 2:45 p.m EST at Oakwell.
