City have a phenomenal home record against the Tykes ahead of the game at the Ricoh Arena this evening...
Coventry City have a better head-to-head record going into tonight’s clash with Barnsley.
The Sky Blues have won 27 of the all-time meetings, drawn 13 and lost 17.
In the last five meetings between the clubs, City have won twice and drawn once, with the Tykes winning two games. The most recent game, at Oakwell last season, saw Tony Mowbray watch on from the stands on the day he was appointed as manager.
George Waring scored the winner in a 1-0 loss which saw Neil MacFarlane and Dave Hockaday take charge of the team.
But the most encouraging stats for City fans ahead of tonight’s game come in the shape of the Sky Blues’ home record against the Tykes.
Barnsley haven’t travelled to Coventry and won since 1923, the current record stands at City winning 16 and drawing seven of their games at home.
