Match Previews

PREVIEW: Southend United Vs Barnsley

1 March 2019

The Reds make a second visit of the season to Southend this weekend and we've got it covered here with our big match preview.

After last weekend's goalless draw at fellow promotion-chasers Portsmouth, Reds Head Coach, Daniel Stendel now takes his side back down south to face the Shrimpers in Sky Bet League One. 

Barnsley's run of long-distance away trips continues with this second visit to Roots Hall, following December's 4-2 Emirates FA Cup there. With this Saturday's fixture being televised on Sky Sports, the match will kick off at the earlier time of 12:30pm. 

Jacob Brown

Last weekend's second consecutive 0-0 draw has seen others close the gap on Stendel's Reds, but they do remain in the second automatic promotion spot going into the Southend fixture. 

Reds skipper, Adam Davies pulled off a superb penalty-save at Fratton Park to extend his fine form. That was his third clean sheet in February, his 15th of the 2018/19 campaign and the 62nd since arriving at Oakwell in the summer of 2014.

There was bad news for the Reds this week on the injury front, with 18-goal top scorer, Kieffer Moore confirmed as being out for the rest of the season following his head injury sustained in the 4-1 victory at Gillingham.

A huge blow, but as Assistant Coach Dale Tonge explained in midweek when speaking with the press at Oakwell, it's an opportunity for others to step up to the plate. 

You can watch both Dale's and midfielder Mike Bähre's pre-match press conference videos in full over on iFollow Barnsley as they preview Saturday's trip to the seaside.

Our hosts at lunchtime this Saturday haven't won for seven games, and haven't tasted victory at home since their victory over Gillingham on New Year's Day. 

They did fight back from three goals down in their last Roots Hall fixture - the 3-3 draw with Portsmouth, in which experienced forward Simon Cox (pictured) bagged himself a hat-trick, a game also shown live on Sky Sports TV.

Simon Cox

Along with the former Reading striker, Southend can call upon the services of a number of players who've been there and done it at a higher level.

Central defender Michael Turner represented Sunderland and Hull City in the top flight; Michael Kightly once played on the wing for Wolves in the Premier League and with promising youngsters Dru Yearwood and Stephen Humphrys in the ranks, Blues' manager Chris Powell has a good mix of players available to him. 

Chris Powell

Former England international Powell has been in situ at Roots Hall since January of last year. The ex-Derby County and Charlton Athletic full-back had previous spells in charge at the Valley, coached at Pride Park and spent just over a year as manager of Huddersfield Town. 

The Reds were victorious at Oakwell against Southend back in November. A late Kieffer Moore goal giving Barnsley a 1-0 win on home soil.

We did however lose in our last league visit to Roots Hall. A 2-1 defeat in October of 2015. 

The Shrimpers have the edge slightly in this fixture historically. 

Barnsley have won 15 clashes, there have been 15 draws with Southend on 17 victories. 

Hassell 2008

The two clubs first met back in 1938. That was a 2-2 draw in the FA Cup at Roots Hall. 

If you can't make it to Southend for this seaside trip, be sure to tune into iFollow Barnsley's match centre before kick off for LIVE and uninterrupted audio commentary. There is no live stream available due to Sky Sports' coverage.

Match Reports

REPORT: Southend 0-3 Barnsley

2 March 2019

10-men Reds sink the Shrimpers!

A stunning second half display saw 10-man Barnsley take the points and stretch their unbeaten run to 15 league games.

Goals from Cameron McGeehan, Cauley Woodrow and a first for Jordan Green gave Barnsley another priceless victory in their quest for promotion.

Reds Head Coach, Daniel Stendel, made a tactical change to the starting XI that drew with Portsmouth seven days ago, replacing Mike Bӓhre with Kenny Dougall in midfield.

An early aerial battle ended with the ball dropping to Alex Mowatt, who played a first-time ball into an advanced Cameron McGeehan, who didn’t quite connect with the ball.

At the other end, Blues dangerman Simon Cox was released down the right-hand side, before sprinting into the box and firing a low shot into the midriff of Adam Daives, who held well. Shortly after, The Reds had their first real chance. Dimitri Cavaré advanced powerfully down the right-hand side before releasing Jacob Brown, whose cross made its way to Mamadou Thiam on the penalty spot. Taking it on the half volley, it was blazed it over the bar.

A breakaway with Mowatt and Woodrow saw the ball fall to Thiam once more. This time his shot was much closer, with the ball just passing wide of the post. It was then Southend’s attack. A swift run from Cox ended with the ball being cut back with two awaiting Southend men. Thankfully Cavare was alert to the danger. From the resulting corner, McGeehan broke, playing ball out wide to Cavare saw the ball cut back first time to Woodrow. His shot was well saved by Nathan Bishop in the Blues goal, diving to his right.

Then after 35 minutes, a key moment. A high challenge from Brown in the centre of the park on Blues Skipper, Sam Mantom, was right under the referee’s nose. Despite the little contact, Brown was dismissed from the field. On the stroke of half time, Michael Kightly jinked his way into box, releasing a curling shot headed for the bottom corner, before Pinnock made a superb block.

HALF TIME: Southend 0-0 Barnsley

The Reds started the second half brightly, with a Liam Lindsay header cleared from the line, before taking the lead in the 50th minute. A throw on the left-hand side was put into the middle of the field, before the ball was looped into the box, landing on the back of a stooped McGeehan. It fell kindly for him and he reacted superbly, firing a low shot beyond Bishop and into the bottom corner.

From here on, the game opened up, becoming frantic at times, with Southend moving men forward. This left plenty of space for The Reds to exploit. Substitute Mike Bӓhre picked up the ball inside the Southend half, advancing forward and playing an excellent ball to Woodrow inside the box, who made no mistake with his first time shot back across goal.

The Reds didn’t sit back however, with the introduction of Jordan Green seeing Southend regularly hit on the break and Barnsley looking for a third. Sure enough, in added time, a Bӓhre breakaway fell to McGeehan. His shot was saved but Green was on hand to slot into an empty net to complete the win.

FULL TIME: Southend 0-3 Barnsley

Davies, Cavaré, Pinnock, Lindsay, Pinillos, Brown, Dougall (Green), Mowatt, McGeehan, Thiam (Bähre), Woodrow (Jackson).
