PREVIEW: Barnsley Vs Sheffield Wednesday

The inside track on the South Yorkshire Derby

7 February 2020

The Reds' fight for Sky Bet Championship survival continues this weekend as local rivals Sheffield Wednesday come to town - here's the preview.

With a massive game up next, Barnsley are coming off the back of a painful defeat last time out; defeated 2-1 by Charlton Athletic in the capital last weekend. 

That was the Reds' fourth successive defeat in all competitions, their worst such sequence of the 2019/20 season so far. 

After somewhat stumbling out of the blocks at The Valley last week, Gerhard Struber's side rallied after the break but were unable to overturn the two-goal deficit that their hosts hadn't had to break sweat for.

Returning to league action, Cauley Woodrow did grab his 11th goal of another productive campaign but the woodwork on three occasions stopped Barnsley from grabbing what would have been a deserved share of the spoils considering their second half dominance. 

The running theme this season that has been so detrimental to the Reds' progress has been their propensity to shoot themselves in the foot with errors leading to goals. Struber has had his squad working hard all week in training to try and combat the issue.

The Reds' boss and forward Jacob Brown sat down with the media midweek and subscribers to iFollow Barnsley can watch both of their pre-match press conference interviews by clicking on the linked videos below.

Our opponents from just down the road aren't in the greatest of form themselves in all fairness. They've won just one league game since the turn of the year, albeit against another Yorkshire rival when coming away from Elland Road with a 2-0 win over Leeds United on January 11 2020.

Supporter Information

5 February 2020

They've won two difficult away ties in the FA Cup though, proving the Owls are a different animal away from Hillsborough, where they've suffered a little recently; a 5-0 hammering at home to Blackburn Rovers the best example. 

Wednesday are 19 points better off than the Reds, and currently sit in 11th position of the Sky Bet Championship table, seven points from the final playoff place, so still well within reach as we begin the final third of a long old season. 

Seven points is also the gap that separates Barnsley from safety heading into this clash.

The Owls are led by former Reds player Garry Monk. Having had a modicum of success with previous clubs such as Swansea and Birmingham City, his arrival at Hillsborough in September saw him appointed manager of his fifth club in five years. He will be hoping to finally stick around in a dugout, and he's won 11 of his first 27 fixtures at the helm. 

In what is one of the oldest squads in the Football League, Wednesday can call upon proven Championship players aplenty; players with international experience too and Monk was allowed to add reinforcements during the January transfer window, adding the likes of Josh Windass and Connor Wickham to the ranks.

A number of Owls players have played in this particular derby, and at Oakwell in previous seasons. In Barry Bannan, Morgan Fox, Tom Lees and Atdhe Nuhiu, Wednesday certainly have the edge in terms of knowledge. And in Sam Winnall up front, if selected of course, we have a potential pantomime villain. 

It was a fairly one-sided clash when the two sides locked horns in the second fixture of the season, way back in sunny August. A second-minute Jacob Murphy goal was added to by Steven Fletcher on the hour-mark, in one of the Reds' most inept performances of the season.

What's On This Saturday?

6 February 2020

A historically happy fixture for Sheffield Wednesday, they've not tasted defeat at Oakwell for 12 years now. That was a 2-1 Reds victory, with Iain Hume and Jamal Campbell-Ryce on the scoresheet for Barnsley; Leon Clarke's penalty wasn't enough for Wednesday on that occasion. 

The last Owls success on Grove Street came in December of 2012 as Chris O'Grady - who would later sign for the Reds - scored the solitary goal in a 1-0 Wednesday victory.

That being one of 36 triumphs for our visitors in this fixture, with Barnsley stuck on 22. 

One of the Reds players who played in that last victoy over the Owls a dozen years ago is our Under 23s' Head Coach, Martin Devaney, and he joins Matt Bailey live on iFollow Barnsley for uninterrupted commentary from just before 1.30pm.

Match Reports

REPORT: Barnsley 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

8 February 2020

Barnsley came from behind to claim a share of the spoils in a pulsating South Yorkshire Derby at Oakwell on Saturday afternoon.

First half strikes from Josh Windass and Cauley Woodrow ensured both sides took a point from a game that the Reds perhaps deserved to win on the balance of play.

After a cagey opening, it was Wednesday who took the lead after quarter of an hour as Windass latched onto a ricocheted clearance to slam home at the near post.

The Reds weren’t behind for long, however, as Cameron Dawson – under pressure from the diminutive Elliot Simoes – scuffed his clearance straight to Woodrow, who made no mistake from over 30-yards by sidefooting into an empty net.

Conor Chaplin then had a chance to put Barnsley ahead when he picked up Michael Sollbauer’s knockdown before swivelling and shooting down the throat of Dawson.

It was Jacob Brown’s turn to come close next, as he took aim from the edge of the box but curled a shot narrowly wide of the far post.

Moments later, the Reds’ forward burst into the box from the right flank and looked certain to score, but Dawson spread himself well to turn it behind for a corner.

HALF-TIME: Barnsley 1-1 Wednesday

Wednesday came out brightly after the interval and had an opportunity to score through a goalmouth scramble, but Clarke Oduor was able to block and prevent an attempt on target.

After weathering a storm, Barnsley enjoyed a sustained period of possession, and both Brown and Chaplin fired dangerous low crosses into the box that Dawson gathered well.

The Owls also looked dangerous, however, and Windass floated a fine ball to the far post, but Alessio Da Cruz was unable to divert his effort goalwards.

It was an end-to-end contest, and, following intricate work from substitute Callum Styles, Jordan Williams flashed a ball across the box but Simoes couldn’t get enough purchase to steer home from close range.

Styles was involved again just minutes later as Woodrow expertly took down a Brad Collins clearance before laying it off for his teammate, but the midfielder’s long-range effort was straight at Dawson.

Barnsley continued to create chances, and Oduor found Williams with a beautiful cross, but the Reds’ full-back saw his goalbound effort blocked by a scrambling defender.

A combination of Oduor, Collins and Mads Andersen then denied Owls substitute Jacob Murphy from scoring what looked certain to be a late winner with just two minutes remaining.

The visitors had the final chance of the game as skipper Tom Lees fired over from point blank range, but the Reds held on to claim a much-needed point.

FULL-TIME: Barnsley 1-1 Wednesday
