26 September 2014

IN-FORM Swindon are the favourites for the three points at Barnsley as they bid to strengthen their position in League 1’s leading pack.

The Robins are unbeaten in their last six games and have been cut to 9/2 for promotion from 9/1 on the eve of the season. Barnsley, League 1’s third-highest scorers with 17 goals so far this season, are 3/1 to win a match featuring more than two goals.  Jonathan Obika has caught the eye in recent weeks with five goals in four games since his Deadline Day move from Tottenham. He is 6/1 to score the opening goal.

The Tykes have been beaten twice at Oakwell but are 7/4 here to add to their only home success against Gillingham on August 23. Conor Hourihane has been their big positive so far this term. He was named Sky Bet Player of the Month for August and has six goals to his name already. He is 9/1 to score the opening goal and 5/1 to score in a home win.

Top tip: Conor Hourihane to score anytime at 3/1
