Daily Tips – Tykes to give survival bid a boost


Barnsley ground out a victory at the weekend and can give their survival hopes another boost by winning tonight at Ipswich.

The Tykes upset local rivals Sheffield United 3-2 and face a Tractor Boys side running out of steam following a mixed few months that has led to confirmation that Mick McCarthy will not be at the club next season.

McCarthy, ironically a Barnsley boy himself, has seen his side lose four of their last five and with everyone at the club seemingly at loggerheads, the end of the season cannot come soon enough.

Things are not exactly hunky dory at Oakwell, with rumours the players have given up on boss Jose Morais’ tactics and are now doing their own thing.

It seems to be working though, and the 8/5 for an away win at Portman Road is my bet of the night.

Millwall are unbeaten in 15 and at 1/1 should have too much for free-falling Bolton at the Macron but just up the road in Manchester, a classic awaits.

Manchester City have struggled over the last week, losing first to Liverpool 3-0 and then squandering a two-goal lead in Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to local rivals United.

Tonight’s Champions League quarter-final return leg promises more goalmouth action and over 3.5 is 11/10.

As far as a result goes, I reckon City will have too much but cannot see them qualifying, especially considering the mental toll their recent outings will inevitably have had on them.

Liverpool are always dangerous so I’m backing the 13/10 for the home win and both to score.
