EFL League One will be back in action this weekend when Barnsley plays host to Charlton Athletic at Oakwell Stadium in the 10th round of the competition. Kickoffs on September 24 at 17:00 EAT.
The hosts are placed sixth with 14 points to their name after the nine matches they have played so far. The recent home stalemate Port Vale came as a disappointment, but seven points from away fixtures at Ipswich Town, Sheffield Wednesday and Cambridge United is a return which exceeded expectations. Coming into this game, Barnsley is unbeaten in four of their last six matches.
Barnsley will be looking for another win following 2-0 EFL Trophy success to beat Newcastle United U21s in their previous game. In that match, Barnsley had 45% possession, 16 shots with seven of them on target and goals scored by Jack James Harry Butterfill (79’) and Ziyad Lerkeche (85’). Newcastle United U21s got seven shots with two of them on target.
Meanwhile, Charlton are currently on the second longest winless streak in the division, after going winless in all their last five matches in the league. Charlton has also failed to win any of their five away fixtures with all but three of their 11 points this term coming from home matches.
Charlton Athletic shared the spoils 1-1 League One with Fleetwood Town in their previous encounter. In that match, Charlton had 48% possession, seven shots with three of them on target and a goal by The Miles Leaburn (77′). Fleetwood Town got 13 shots with two of them on target and a goal by Callum Morton (30′).
