Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Bolton Walkers and Barnsley will both look further for their first win of the season on Tuesday than they EFL Cup officially starts.

Both teams picked up a point in their respective opening games on Saturday and each team will try to get a point better when they clashed for the first time since 2018.


Prediction for this match

The Bolton Wanderers made it too late to secure a point in their first game in the premier division Amadou Bakayoko hit the net in the 95th minute and helped his team to a point in a six-goal thriller.

Ian Evatt will have been satisfied with the performance of his team on the opening day of the season, which corresponded to the game of the Trotters in preparation.

Bolton actually goes into that EFL Cup game in a nine-game run without loss that dates back to the final day of last season when they beat Crawley Town 4-1 to secure promotion.

The pre-season was an impressive time for Evatt’s men, with the team taking four wins and three draws, scoring 12 goals in the process.

However, the Wanderers need to include this scorer form in their meeting with Barnsley if they are to upgrade their EFL Cup journey from last season when they were defeated at home against Bradford City in the first round.

Barnsley almost copied Bolton when he secured promotion last season but ultimately failed in the semi-finals of the championship playoffs as Swansea City won the right to play at Wembley with a 2-1 aggregate win.

Nonetheless, the Tykes also had an impressive pre-season, with two wins and one draw, with their only loss to Premier League champions Manchester City.

New manager Markus Schopp joined the club in late June and he immediately brought his own style to the team, which was evident at the start of the league against Cardiff City.

The two teams fought to a draw on Saturday Toby Sibbick‘s goal in the 69th minute that levels the game to secure a point for the start of the season.

Barnsley impressed last year in the EFL Cup with wins against Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough, despite being knocked out of competition in the third round against Chelsea.

Sibbick will look to keep his place in defense, especially after scoring Barnsley’s first goal of the season Jasper moon and Clarke Oduor after impressing on Saturday to get off the bench.

Experienced striker Cauley Woodrow hopes to score his first goal of the season as he is likely to lead the line and aim to top the 14 goals he scored last season.

Gilks; Jones, Baptiste, Johnston, John; Sheehan, Williams; Bakayoko, Sarcevic, Kachunga; Doyle

Probability: Bolton Wanderers 2-1 Barnsley
