Peterborough United and Barnsley meet on Friday night in one of the most anticipated fixtures of Football League One matchday 20. The hosts are just one point ahead of Barnsley in the table - have played one more game - and have picked up just one win from their last six matches in all competitions. Considering Peterborough United have averaged just one goal per game over that period, it would be a surprise if they hit the net more than once on Friday.

Barnsley, on the other hand, go into this game full of confidence, having won five of their last six games in all competitions. One thing that has been hitting the headlines in their recent league games is the fact that at least one team tends to remain scoreless almost every time. Out of the visitors' last eight league games, the bet "both teams score a goal = no" has been won a record seven times. And when you consider that just as many games ended with less than 2.5 goals, Friday's match will probably be very close.

Peterborough United vs Barnsley Betting Tips: BTTS=NO

Although the hosts' current form is a little wobbly, the fact that they are unbeaten in their last five league games at this ground (four wins, one draw) should play an important role in their preparation for this match.

And given the fact that the last six meetings between these two teams have each ended with at least one side failing to score, we recommend betting on this option for Friday's match.

Peterborough United Team News

Peterborough United will not be able to call on their centre-back Ronnie Edwards, who saw a red card against Bristol Rovers last weekend.

His absence means head coach Gary Caldwell might switch to a back three featuring Dan Butler, Frankie Kent and Nathan Thompson, while 23-year-old midfielder Joel Randall could get a place in midfield.

Jonson Clarke-Harris, who leads the Football League One scoring charts this season with 12 goals in 19 games, was not in the starting eleven for that game but is likely to start here, meaning Jack Marriott would have to settle for a place on the bench.

Barnsley had no injuries in their comfortable 3-0 win over Crewe Alexandra in the 2nd round of the FA Cup last weekend, so head coach Michael Duff may resist the temptation to change his starting eleven.

Devante Cole leads the visitors' scoring charts this season with five goals and should once again partner James Norwood in a 3-5-2 formation, although Jack Aitchison is an attacking option.
