PREVIEW: Barnsley Vs Charlton Athletic

The inside track on the Reds against the Addicks

16 August 2019

Sky Bet Championship action returns this weekend as Charlton Athletic visit Oakwell and here's your preview.

It's been a tough week for Barnsley after first suffering defeat in the South Yorkshire Derby at Sheffield Wednesday last weekend which was then followed up by a 3-0 humbling on home soil to League Two outfit Carlisle United in the Carabao Cup. 

Although it remains very early days for Daniel Stendel's side, an encouraging performance this weekend would be more than welcome. 


Whilst the Reds were competitive for much of the league defeat at Hillsborough, Tuesday night's cup exit was a miserable one as a well-drilled Carlisle side comfortably brushed Barnsley aside.

There are unlikely to be any players returning from their respective injuries, and Alex Mowatt has himself been ruled out this week through injury. This should mean a second successive start for Callum Styles, who made his full Reds debut in midweek.

First Team Coach Dale Tonge and forward Conor Chaplin spoke to the press in the lead up to the Charlton fixture and their pre-match press conference videos are available to watch on iFollow Barnsley

Meanwhile for our opponents, despite them also getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup during the week to lower league opposition (beaten on penalties by Forest Green Rovers) it's been a promising start to life back in the second tier.

An opening day victory at Ewood Park over Blackburn Rovers was backed up by a 3-1 home win against big-spending Stoke City last weekend. 

One of the most prolific goalscorers in the EFL over the last few years has been striker Lyle Taylor and he's already up and running for the Addicks.

In charge of our visitors this weekend is Lee Bowyer. The former Premier League midfielder who excelled with Leeds United most notably has had to reshape the squad that he led to playoff final glory last term.

Charlton lost a number of key players over the summer but Bowyer has used the free agent and loan market wisely, or so it appears at this early stage of the campaign.

He expects a tough encounter on Saturday, as he explained when speaking to Charlton Athletic's official website.

"Every game is going to be tough," Bowyer declared. "But if we go about it in the right way and we apply ourselves in the right way and compete - because we’re definitely going to have to compete with them - if we do that, then hopefully we get the result we want."

Both sides won on home soil when meeting in League One last season, with the most recent fixture being the December 2018 clash in which the Reds edged the Addicks 2-1 with Mamadou Thiam's thunderbolt the winning strike.

Historically, there's not much between the clubs. Our London-based opponents have the slightly better record head-to-head with 19 victories to the Reds' 17.

REPORT: Barnsley 2-2 Charlton Athletic

Late penalty denies the Reds

17 August 2019

Barnsley forced to settle for a point despite leading twice against the Addicks.

The Reds welcomed fellow newly-promoted side Charlton Athletic to Oakwell this afternoon in front of over 13,000 fans in what would prove to be an exciting affair.

Barnsley were looking to get back to winning ways following two disappointing defeats in their previous two fixtures and also keeping their unbeaten home league run intact whilst Charlton had started the season well with three points against both Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City.

It was the Sky Bet League One playoff winners that initially started the game better, with the first big chance of the game after only two minutes. Left back Ben Purrington found himself on the end of a cross but managed to drag his effort wide from very close range.

As the first half progressed the Reds looked to control the game and enjoyed the majority of possession, as they have done several times this season so far. The high intensity pressing style they are renowned for was in full flow as they looked to win the ball back quickly.

Big chances were few and far between for both sides, but it took a piece of magic from forward Cauley Woodrow to get the Reds on the score-sheet. A blistering volley from the edge of the box found its way into the top corner, giving Addicks ‘keeper Dillon Phillips no chance of keeping it out.

Barnsley dominated the wide areas but struggled to find that finishing touch as the first half looked to fizzle out. But a long ball from the Charlton defence found its way to Jonny Williams who whipped in a cross to Conor Gallagher who slotted past Sami Radlinger.


Daniel Stendel’s side came out firing in the second half, with their high-energy well and truly on show. So much so that after just three minutes from the restart, Conor Chaplin picked up the ball in the box, showed excellent close control and despite the Charlton defence diving in, slotted coolly past the ‘keeper to restore the Reds’ lead.

The game swayed well in favour of the home side as they looked to add to their tally but the efforts from Woodrow and Chaplin were just not enough.

Charlton managed to weather the storm and edged back into the contest. Neither goalkeeper had much to do with Lyle Taylor the only man to test Radlinger as time ran out with a stinging strike that was well parried.

The back four stood very strong to thwart the aerial attack of the away side with both centre backs, Andersen and Diaby in particular looking immense.

But as time ran out, a bundling over of bodies in the box led to the referee awarding Charlton a penalty with Bambo Diaby penalised. Taylor stepped up and placed the ball in the bottom right-hand corner, giving each side a share of the spoils.


Radlinger, Sibbick, Andersen, Diaby, B.Williams, Wilks (Styles), McGeehan, Bähre, Thomas, Chaplin (Thiam), Woodrow.

Unused: Collins, Halme, J.Williams, Cavaré, Schmidt.
