Port Vale Team News

Port Vale in Sky Bet League One is currently in position number 10 after 19 matches played with 26 points won. In the previous part of the competition, they achieved 7 victories, with the same number of defeats, while 5 matches ended in a draw.

In the last round, they recorded a minimal victory in front of their fans against Charlton, a team that was a standard member of the Premier League in previous years, and has been competing in the third tier of English football for some time.

In the last match between these two teams, in mid-September this year, Barnsley played 1-1 with Port Vale as the host. So it is very difficult to predict the outcome of their next meeting, considering that these are two teams that are quite equal in terms of quality.

Barnsley Team News

On the other hand, after 18 matches played in Ligue One with 30 points, Barnsley is in 6th place in the table, and this is the position that currently leads them to the play-offs. But what is interesting is that they are only 4 points ahead of Port Vale, their next opponent in the round of 16 of the EFL Trophy competition.

What works in Barnsley’s favor is the fact that they are a very good away team, having won 6 of their last 8 away matches. They are currently in good form, having won 4 out of 4 previous matches, including all competitions, and there is every chance that they will go into the next match against Port Vale highly motivated.

In the last round, they took all three points at home with a routine 3-1 triumph against MK Dons. In a match where Barnsley’s attack once again this season managed to make a crucial difference on the pitch.


In the last five meetings, Port Vale and Barnsley have won two games each, one game ended in a draw.

Expected lineups

Port Vale (3-4-1-2): Jack Stevens – Nathan Smith – Daniel Jones – Connor Hall – David Worrall – Ben Garrity – Tom Conlon – Malvind Benning – Daniel Butterworth – Gavin Massey – James Wilson

Barnsley (3-5-2): Bradley Collins – Tom Edwards – Mads Juel Anderson – Liam Kitching – Jordan Williams – Herbie Kane – Adam Phillips – Luca Connell – Nicky Cadden – Jack Aitchison – Devante Cole

Port Vale vs. Barnsley Prediction

We have to admit that it is very difficult to predict the outcome of this match, because it is a duel between two very similar teams, with quite equal quality, so the nuances will probably decide the winner.

Also, we are of the opinion that in a match like this the best option is to play on goals. Considering that 4 of the last 5 duels between these two teams ended with goals on both sides, our combination for this match is for both teams to score a goal.
