Barnsley are back in action on Tuesday evening following a tough closely-fought affair at Preston North End's Deepdale on Saturday afternoon, however can the Tykes hold the on-form Rams at bay on Tuesday evening and secure for themselves a place in the third round of the EFL Cup draw? Given Barnsley's unpredictability this season so far, we don't fancy their chances too much.

The Rams have been putting in some excellent performances so far this term and they opened the account by holding Sunderland to a 1-1 draw and bouncing back from a subsequent 1-0 home defeat to Wolves with wins against Preston North End, Bolton Wanderers and Grimsby Town, the latter in the last round of this competition. A 3-1 defeat at Sheffield United ended this winning streak but they will be brimming with confidence having thrashed Hull City to the tune of 5-0 in their last outing. As such, we feel that they represent excellent value to win on Tuesday evening with the / going 11/10 on such an outcome.

Barnsley will certainly provide tough opposition at Oakwell but their inconsistency both at home and away will go against them in this clash. Nevertheless with both of these sides conceding and scoring aplenty, we do envisage goals at both ends and with this in mind, we'll also be going for a Derby County win and both teams to scorer with the / going a healthy 3/1 that this proves to be the case on Tuesday evening.
