Fleetwood Town welcome Barnsley to Highbury Stadium this weekend, and in our match preview we've got all the information you need to know ahead of the 3pm kick-off on the Fylde Coast.

Fixture: Fleetwood Town v Barnsley

Competition: Sky Bet League One

Date: Saturday 16 February 2024

Kick-Off: 15:00

Venue: Highbury Stadium, Fleetwood, Lancashire, FY7 6TX



The Tykes currently sit 4th in Sky Bet League One, with 57 points to their name as they will look to go one better this campaign after narrowly missing out on promotion at Wembley in the Play-Off Final. Barnsley have been solid on the road as well at at home, and with 9 wins to their name in all competitions this season, there's plenty of room for optomism with a handful of matches left.

Barnsley won their league opener 7-0 against Port Vale, but looking at their recent form, they have won four of their last seven matches, with the latest win being at Oakwell on Saturday 10 February. After being a goal down on home soil, it was up to Adam Phillips to turn things around and with a goal in the 88th and 90th minute, the three points went to the Reds.

Neill Collins' side last won on the road away at fellow Play-Off hopefuls, Oxford United. They didn't score themselves, but the three points did go back up North thanks to an own goal from Sam Long. A much needed win, but will they go and get all three points on the Fylde Coast.



Town's last meeting against Barnsley was back in October 2023, with the fixture played at Oakwell. Fleetwood got off to a flyer in South Yorkshire as Junior Quitirna fired the visitors in front after just three minutes with a well worked finish inside the 18-yard box. Barnsley levelled it up moment later from the penalty spot, courtesy of former Town player Devante Cole.

But up stepped Quitirna - the former Waterford FC playmaker, to curl a free-kick right into the top corner from 30-yards. The Tykes come from behind twice to level it up very late on in the game thanks to Corey O'Keeffee's controlled finish from close range.
