PREVIEW: Millwall Vs Barnsley

The inside track on the Reds' trip to Millwall

20 December 2019

Barnsley are back in action this weekend with a visit to the capital in their final game before Christmas - here's the preview.

The Reds have really stepped things up at Oakwell since the arrival of Head Coach, Gerhard Struber with seven points from a possible nine. 

There have been promising performances on the road too, with only late goals at Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City denying Struber's side vital away points, as the Reds' search for a first victory on their travels moves on now to Millwall.

The Boss

But the players ought to be going into Saturday's trip to The Den in good spirits after last weekend's thumping of Queens Park Rangers on home soil. 

A Conor Chaplin hat-trick saw him make it six goals in his last six appearances, with Cauley Woodrow bagging his 9th of the season from the penalty spot and defender Bambo Diaby helping himself to his first goal for the club. 

The Players

The result saw the Reds reduce the gap from safety to just four points, but they do remain bottom of the Sky Bet Championship table. 

Ahead of the Lions clash, both Gerhard and defender Jordan Williams met the press in midweek and you can get their thoughts on the trip to Millwall by watching their pre-match press conference videos on iFollow Barnsley by clicking the linked videos below.

Our hosts are unbeaten in their last seven league games and are fresh off the back of consecutive victories on the road at Derby County and Bristol City. 

Under Gary Rowett, the Lions are currently 11th in the table and just two points off the playoff places, despite many tipping Millwall for another season of struggle.

Gary Rowett

You have to go back to mid-September for their last home defeat and they are one of just three sides to have beaten Leeds United this term.

The Lions have a couple of familiar faces in their squad. Former Reds striker Tom Bradshaw scored the winner at Pride Park last weekend and will be expecting to lead the line in this one. And former Reds defender Jason McCarthy is now a Lion, having left Wycombe Wanderers in the summer, however, the popular full-back is currently out with a foot injury.

Bradshaw

Historically speaking, this is a fixture in which the Reds have their share of good memories, none more so than the 2016 Sky Bet League One PlayOff final victory.

But in league terms, the Reds won at The Den on their last visit, when a Mamadou Thiam penalty and a Tom Bradshaw brace saw us to a 3-1 victory.

2017

There was a 3-2 victory in 2015 when Lewin Nyatanga headed home a last minute winner in a 3-2 success. 

And in 2012, Marcus Tudgay struck at the death in a 2-1 victory. 

In total, there have been 59 meetings of the two clubs with Barnsley earning 24 wins to the Lions' 23. 

There is no live stream of the game on iFollow Barnsley for either UK or overseas subscribers due to broadcast restrictions. But we will have LIVE and uninterrupted commentary from The Den just before kick-off at 3pm.

Match Reports

REPORT: Millwall 1-2 Barnsley

Stoppage-time winner at The Den for Barnsley

21 December 2019

Gerhard Struber's side earned their first away victory of the season to edge a tough contest in the capital as the Reds lifted themselves off the foot of the Sky Bet Championship table.

Patrick Schmidt's 93rd minute header sealed a vital and long-awaited on-the-road triumph for Barnsley in a game they looked to have been denied in when Aidan O'Brien had levelled up for Millwall as we approached the last five minutes.

Conor Chaplin had given Struber's men the lead with a first half finish against the run of play.

The Austrian coach had made just the one alteration to last weekend's starting lineup with Aapo Halme returning from injury and replacing Kenny Dougall at the base of the midfield diamond. The Australian midfielder was missing from the 18 altogether as the Reds named just six substitutes. 

In a first half that lacked much quality, the hosts, unbeaten in their last seven fixtures were in the ascendance for the first half-hour, taking advantage of a lacklustre looking Barnsley side but not quite creating the openings to hurt the Reds.

There was a litany of free-kicks awarded to the home side, with referee Jarred Gillett quick to blow up and this gave Millwall the chance to swing in a lot of crosses, but other than a header from ex-Red Tom Bradshaw that flew just a foot wide of goal, the Lions struggled to make the breakthrough that their play probably warranted. 

As we closed in on the half time interval, with around 40 minutes on the clock, Barnsley broke down the right flank with Jacob Brown cleverly turning his marker before, with his weaker left foot sending over a low cross that was met first time by Chaplin whose sweet finish bamboozled the hosts' 'keeper and dropped into the far corner to give the Reds a lead their display had scarcely deserved.

It could have been 2-0 just a minute or so later when the ball ran nicely for Chaplin as he attacked the box and from 10 yards out the pint-sized striker unleashed a powerful strike that Bartosz Bialkowski could only fist to safety. 

HALF-TIME: Millwall 0-1 Barnsley

The second half saw a much more impressive Reds performance as they came back out all guns blazing and after a fine run and cross from Clarke Oduor, a superb volley from Brown with the outside of his right boot was saved well, low down by Bialkowski.

It was Alex Mowatt next up to test the Polish goalie who once spent a loan spell with the Reds. The Reds' captain tried a bending effort from 25 yards out but Bartosz got a finger to it and despite Cauley Woodrow teeing up Mowatt for a second go, the follow up was smashed well over the crossbar.

Bradshaw stabbed over from inside the six-yard box as the home side tried to rally, and with the arrival off the bench of giant striker Matt Smith, it became less like football and more like headball. 

Mike Bähre made way for Luke Thomas midway through the half and with 10 minutes remaining, Woodrow was subbed off for Schmidt. But the hosts had been launching balls into the box incessantly and eventually, the chance arose for an equaliser. 

It was that man, Smith who rose to meet a cross from the left wing, his header towards goal was turned home by fellow substitute O'Brien who looked to be just onside, right in front of Reds 'keeper Sami Radlinger.

But instead of deflation, the Reds rallied as four minutes of stoppage time was announced.

Alex Mowatt burst through on goal in the 92nd minute and instead of slipping in Chaplin to his left, he went for goal and was thwarted once more by Bialkowski. But the Reds weren't to be denied...

After Millwall cleared towards the left wing, Thomas nipped in and robbed his man, floated a ball into the home side's box and Schmidt leapt like a salmon to flick home a header that fell nicely into the corner giving Bialkowski no chance for more heroics. 

There were joyous scenes at full-time as players, staff and fans alike celebrated a first away win of the season, their second successive league victory and the third of Struber's short tenure so far.

Barnsley moved off the foot of the table at long last, up to 22nd in the table and just a point from safety as they move on to enjoy Christmas before welcoming league leaders, West Bromwich Albion to Oakwell on Boxing Day. 

FULL-TIME: Millwall 1-2 Barnsley

Reds: Radlinger (GK), J.Williams, Andersen, Diaby, Oduor, Halme, Bähre (Thomas), Mowatt, Brown, Woodrow (Schmidt), Chaplin.

Unused Subs: Collins (GK), Sibbick, Styles, B.Williams.
