PREVIEW: Sheffield Wednesday Vs Barnsley

The inside track on the South Yorkshire Derby

9 August 2019

The 2019/20 Sky Bet Championship season is underway and the Reds head to Hillsborough on Saturday for a 3pm kick-off - here's your preview!

The new campaign kicked off in style last weekend when Daniel Stendel's side defeated promotion favourites Fulham at Oakwell on the opening day.

An early Luke Thomas strike saw the Reds to a 1-0 victory in a game that Barnsley dominated against their much-fancied opponents recently relegated from the Premier League.

This past week has been overshadowed by the transfer window and whilst Stendel had to say goodbye to striker Kieffer Moore - he joined Wigan Athletic - he welcomed two new recruits, with Clarke Oduor and Patrick Schmidt signing on at Oakwell on deadline day, taking the number of summer signings to 12. 

Reds celebrate

This weekend sees a short trip across to Sheffield for our first Yorkshire Derby of the new season. 

And with only Jacob Brown and Kenny Dougall absent through injury, Stendel has a number of options open to him for this clash. 

He might well be minded to stick with the same side who were so impressive against the Cottagers a week ago. 

Reds First Team Coach, Dale Tonge and newly-appointed captain Mike Bähre spoke to the press in midweek and both of their pre-match press conference videos are available to view for our iFollow Barnsley subscribers.

Our hosts on Saturday also come into the fixture off the back of an opening day victory. The Owls saw off Reading away from home to earn their first three points of the campaign.

They then sold goalscorer Lucas Joao to the Royals this past week, but made the additions of Jacob Murphy, Massimo Luongo and David Bates.

Under the guidance of caretaker boss Lee Bullen following the acrimonious departure of Steve Bruce to Newcastle United this summer, Wednesday haven't lost against the Reds in S6 for 10 years now. 

On that night at Hillsborough, a Jamal Campbell-Ryce strike earned the Reds a 1-0 win, in a season (2008/09) that saw Barnsley do the double over their rivals. 

There's been nothing to separate the sides in the last three meetings. 

Three consecutive draws, with the most recent being the 1-1 draw at Oakwell when Oli McBurnie levelled up for Barnsley after the Owls had taken the lead through an Adthe Nuihiu penalty.

REPORT: Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 Barnsley

Defeat in Sheffield for Stendel's side

10 August 2019

Sheffield Wednesday came out on top in the first South Yorkshire derby of the season, as they defeated the Reds 2-0 at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon.

Head Coach, Daniel Stendel named an unchanged starting eleven from the side that beat Fulham 1-0 at Oakwell on the opening day of the season, but it was a completely different result this afternoon.

In a match that had a real derby day feel about it, Wednesday came out of the blocks quickly and soon had the ball in the back of the net, just one minute in.

Jacob Murphy found space on the inside left of the penalty area after an initial shot by Kadeem Harris deflected into his path and he made no mistake with the finish as he slotted calmly past Sami Radlinger to make it 1-0.

Murphy had a chance to double his tally not long after when Harris was brought down on the edge of the area. The attacker lined-up the set-piece, but fired just wide of Radlinger’s goal.

However, just moments later, it was the Reds who threatened, when Toby Sibbick made a good run down the right flank and crossed low for Luke Thomas, but his side-footed effort nestled into the side netting.

The Reds continued to push for an equaliser, as Sibbick looked to get in down the right again, but he saw Cameron Dawson in the Wednesday goal intercept just before he was able to latch onto the forward pass.

Radlinger then saved a Julian Borner header, before he had to be on hand to expertly deny Adam Reach in the 33rd minute, who had gone through one-on-one after beating the offside trap.

Just before half-time, Malik Wilks dragged his shot inches wide of the post and Cauley Woodrow saw his close-range effort blocked well by Dawson, as the Reds went into the break with all of the momentum in attack, but couldn’t quite find a way to level the score.

HALF-TIME: SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 1-0 BARNSLEY

As we got back underway for the second-half, Harris got on the end of a lofted through ball, but out came Radlinger to block the effort away.

Harris and Fletcher both came close for Wednesday again, but Radlinger denied them the opportunity to further extend their lead.

Seconds later, Wilks raced down the left-hand side and searched for Woodrow in the centre, but as the striker looked to steer his shot past the goalkeeper at the near post, a Wednesday defender threw his body in the way to block for a corner.

The resulting set-play caused chaos in the Owls box, as Cameron McGeehan delivered for Alex Mowatt, however, the midfielder’s effort went over the bar.

Despite the Reds looking the most likely team to score midway through the half, Wednesday hit them on the break and scored a second. Fletcher was the man to net, as his low drive from the edge of the penalty area flew into the bottom corner after 60 minutes.

In an attempt to get back into the game, Stendel made a double substitution, as Mamadou Thiam and Conor Chaplin replaced Bähre and Wilks.

Thiam almost made an instant impact, as he cut back onto his right foot and shot, but a covering defender was able to clear off the line.

With ten minutes to play, Radlinger spread himself big to deny substitute Massimo Luongo, before Woodrow headed over for the Reds.

There were five additional minutes, but no further chances, as the Reds suffered their first defeat of the season against their local rivals.
