PREVIEW: WBA Vs Barnsley

The inside track on the Reds' clash with the Baggies

21 October 2019

The Reds are straight back into Sky Bet Championship in midweek with a trip to the Hawthorns to face league leaders, West Bromwich Albion - it's time for the preview.

Following the weekend point picked up at Oakwell against Swansea City, it's a quick turnaround for Barnsley and caretaker boss, Adam Murray as he prepares his charges for a midweek journey to table-topping Albion in an 8pm kick-off. 

The draw with the high-flying Swans on Saturday gone was the least the Reds deserved having dominated for large parts of the game but again suffering the usual issue so far this season - profligacy in front of goal. 

But having fallen behind somewhat against the run of play to Andre Ayew's close-range finish, the Reds remained confident and fought back to equalise almost instantly when Alex Mowatt notched his first goal of the campaign, slotting home from around eight yards out after fine work from front pair Cauley Woodrow and particularly Conor Chaplin.

That result though did extend Barnsley's winless run to 12 league games against a Swans side that are yet to taste defeat on the road this term. 

Welcome returns for Kenny Dougall and Bambo Diaby boosted the Reds but it remains to be seen who might be fit and ready for Tuesday night. Diaby and full-back Dimi Cavaré had to be subbed off late in the match with calf strains and were being assessed on Monday morning.

Ahead of his first away day in charge of the Reds, Murray spoke with the press to preview the Hawthorns visit along with leading goalscorer, Woodrow and both of their pre-match press conference videos are available to iFollow Barnsley subscribers or watch by clicking the linked videos below.

In terms of Tuesday night's hosts, the Baggies currently sit top of the Sky Bet Championship table after the first quarter of the season. 

With just one defeat from their first dozen games (1-0 at Leeds United) Albion are two points clear of second place as they look to go one better than last season's playoff failure and return to the top flight.

Led by Head Coach, Slaven Bilić, the Croatian legend has quickly put his own stamp on the Baggies squad and so Tuesday night will be a huge test for a Reds side looking for their first away league victory since last season's win in Plymouth. 

The home side are unbeaten at the Hawthorns so far in 2019/20 and have won four of their last five fixtures going into this one. 

Bilic

It's nine years since the two clubs met; Hugo Colace had given Barnsley the lead at the Hawthorns back in May of 2010 before Graeme Dorrans struck in the 90th minute to give the hosts a share of the spoils.

You have to go back to the year 2000 for our last victory at the home of the Baggies. A Darren Barnard brace saw Dave Bassett's Reds to victory that day. 

WBA 2006

Historically there is very little between us. There have been 22 draws, but West Brom have 23 wins to the Reds' 22. 

Of course, we did beat Albion in the FA Cup final of 1912.

REPORT: WBA 2-2 Barnsley

Reds clawed back at the Hawthorns in thrilling encounter

22 October 2019

Barnsley had to settle for a point in their midweek Sky Bet Championship clash with the league leaders in a game of two halves.

The Baggies' Matheus Pereira headed home an 81st minute equaliser here in the West Midlands to earn the hosts a point with the Reds losing a two-goal lead given them to in the first half by leading scorer, Cauley Woodrow.

With just one change to his starting lineup, caretaker boss Adam Murray set up his side in the same manner that saw Barnsley to a point against Swansea City at Oakwell last weekend. The player missing out - through injury - being Aapo Halme with fellow central defender Mads Andersen taking his place in the back three.

The game began with what proved to be the theme for the evening with the home side dominating possession but without creating much of an opening. The only real moment to remark upon being Brad Collins blocking a Charlie Austin ball with his feet in the 8th minute of the match.

Barnsley went ahead when on 18 minutes a sliding Kenny Dougall intercepted a ball in midfield and this released wing-back Dimi Cavaré wide right who bombed beyond his marker to put over a sublime cross that Woodrow powered home with his head from just inside the six-yard box. It was a stunning move that left the home crowd silenced.

A shell-shocked Albion were in disarray less than 10 minutes later when a flowing Reds move from front-to-back saw Alex Mowatt move inside from the left and feed Woodrow central, 20-yards from goal; the striker got the ball out of his feet and hit a powerful, curling effort with his weaker left boot that left WBA 'keeper Sam Johnstone with no chance and saw the division's bottom side take a two-goal lead against the table-toppers.

There was a yellow card shown to Jacob Brown but shortly afterwards it was Brown this time felled. A reckless lunge from Baggies skipper Jake Livermore scything down the Reds wing-back but a very busy Darrem Bond, the official on the night elected not to book the former England midfielder.

Within a minute another card did arrive when Mads Andersen was cautioned for a challenge from behind on WBA forward Grady Diangana. Next in the notebook? Darnell Furlong for the hosts as the game became scrappy which was probably to the Reds' liking as we edged towards the half time break.

And just before the interval Romaine Sawyers could have counted himself lucky to only receive a yellow when he flew into Conor Chaplin on halfway.

HALF TIME: WBA 0-2 REDS

Slaven Bilíc made a double change as the players returned for the second half with Filip Krovinovic and Conor Townsend replacing Kyle Edwards and Nathan Ferguson.

It was the Reds who had the early chances as first Chaplin tried a snapshot volley from the edge of the area which whistled wide after another flowing break. Then, more good football saw Cavaré once more raid down the raid and sit up a cross for Woodrow to glance a header onto the crossbar which fell for Mowatt on his left boot but the captain's strike flew a yard wide at pace.

There was another booking for the Reds when Dougall was adjudged to have taken out Pereira in midfield and as we went past the hour-mark the league leaders began to pen the Reds in and swarm forward looking for a goal to get them back into the contest.

Some nervy moments were seen off before an in-swinging Pereira corner kick came off Bambo Diaby at the near post which beat Collins and the goal WBA craved had arrived and breathed new life into the hosts who were all over the Reds now.

Dougall was replaced by Mallik Wilks, back from suspension with 70 minutes on the clock.

Cavaré joined the list of players booked when after he nipped in ahead of Pereira who dragged him back, referee Bond showed him the yellow card. Reds stopper Collins was finally booked soon after when Bond called him up for incessant time-wasting.

There were shots over the bar by both Charlie Austin and sub Hal Robson-Kanu as we entered the final minutes but there was no keeping out the Albion equaliser as Townsend's left-wing cross from deep caught out the Barnsley backline and in sneaked Pereira to head home from 10 yards despite Collins' best efforts to claw it away.

It was gutting for the Reds but that sparked a frenetic ending to the game with both sides going for what would have been the winner.

There was still time for all of Mowatt, Chaplin and McGeehan to enter the ref's congested notepad with yellow cards and not to be missed out, Townsend for West Brom joined them when he hauled down Cavaré who was clear on halfway in the 95th minute.

A fantastic point on the face of it, with the Reds unbeaten in their two games under Murray so far, but hard to accept that it wasn't three after being 2-0 ahead.

FULL TIME: WBA 2-2 REDS

Collins, Cavaré, Andersen, Sibbick, Diaby, Brown, Mowatt, Dougall (Wilks), McGeehan, Woodrow (Williams), Chaplin.

Unused: Walton, Bähre, Thomas, Oduor, Simoes.
