Match Previews


6 November 2020

We head an hour down the M1 on Saturday, as the Reds face the Rams in Sky Bet Championship action.

We stay on our travels for our last fixture before the November international break, with Barnsley set to take on Derby County at Pride Park in a 3pm kick-off.

Losing a first game in six during midweek, it's a quick opportunity to get that result out of the system and perhaps pick up a first away victory of the 20/21 season.

Tuesday night's defeat in Cardiff won't live long in the memory. The Reds were second best throughout in falling to their first loss since October 3. It was also the first defeat for Head Coach, Valérien Ismaël and the Frenchman will be hoping a number of players are back from injury in time for this clash with the Rams.

Top scorer, Cauley Woodrow has missed the last two fixtures and was sorely missed in the Welsh capital. He and wide-man Callum Brittain are the most likely returnees with the likes of Jordan Williams and Romal Palmer unlikely to make it in time. 

Barnsley had scored in six consecutive games before the 3-0 reverse against the Bluebirds, seemingly solving their early season problems in front of goal. But in Cardiff, they again lacked that cutting edge. Put alongside costly mistakes and playing into the hands of the opposition, it's to be hoped lessons were learnt heading into the weekend.

The Head Coach and his midfielder Callum Styles spoke with the press in midweek, leading up to this match and you can watch both of their pre-match interviews over on iFollow Barnsley or by clicking play on the linked videos below.

Our hosts this Saturday haven't had the brightest of starts to the new campaign, coming into this one behind the Reds in the Championship standings. 

Led by Dutch legend Phillipe Cocu, the Rams have underperformed for him since his arrival in 2019. 



5 November 2020

The Rams finished 10th last season, and for a club with the likes of Curtis Davies, Wayne Rooney, Martyn Waghorn and David Marshall on the books, a playoff push should always be the minimum target. 

But Derby come into this clash in 23rd place with just one win so far this season, having lost three and drawn three of their last six fixtures. 

In their 12 games this term in all competitions, the Rams haven't scored more than a single goal in any of them.

Their home form has been horrendous - in their five league games at Pride Park so far, they've earned just one point, in a 1-1 draw with Cardiff City. The other four games ended in defeats - 0-2 (Reading), 0-4 (Blackburn Rovers), 0-1 (Watford and QPR).

However, this stadium hasn't been the happiest of hunting grounds for the Reds in recent years. We haven't won at Pride Park for 11 years now. 

That was a 3-2 victory in 2009, with Anderson de Silva, Adam Hammill and Andy Gray on target for Mark Robins' Reds. 

We've been defeated on each of our last five visits though. It was a close contest last season, with Barnsley edged out 2-1 in what was billed by the media as Wayne Rooney day.

In 2018 we were smacked 4-1 on the final day of the season, thus being relegated. Three years ago in 2017, the Rams again edged us out 2-1 with Matty James' header having given us a lead we failed to hold onto.

Match Reports


7 November 2020

Barnsley made it three wins from four games under Valérien Ismael with first victory in Derby since 2009.

Goals from Conor Chaplin and Victor Adeboyejo sealed a comfortable road-victory for the in-form Reds on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds made a bright start to proceedings with the returning Cauley Woodrow in the thick of the action early on. The forward linked brilliantly with Callum Styles on the left before his little touch round the corner saw Dominik Frieser in on goal but from eight yards out the Austrian saw his powerful shot turned behind by Derby 'keeper David Marshall.

From the resulting corner, Woodrow was unable to keep his header down as he'd pulled away into space at the far post. 

The hosts immediately sprung into life and a nothing ball over the top saw Martyn Waghorn in behind Mads Andersen but the forward couldn't beat Jack Walton.

Woodrow again glanced a header over the crossbar after Callum Brittain had done superbly to beat his man on the right before putting in an inviting right-foot delivery.

Walton had to be at his sharpest to deny Tom Lawrence twice in quick succession, firmly parrying away two efforts from inside the box. 

Just after the half-hour mark, Barnsley took the lead, and in strange circumstances. 

Marshall on the edge of his own penalty area aimed a low pass to a defender on his right, but he got it wrong as Conor Chaplin pounced before firing home his second goal of the campaign from just inside the box for 1-0. 

Some more neat football in and around the Rams' area saw Woodrow slip Alex Mowatt in, 16 yards from goal, but the skipper dragged his left-footed effort a yard wide of goal with Marshall beaten. 

Chaplin saw a late free-kick drop just wide of the post, but it had been a pretty entertaining opening 45, and one the Reds probably edged. 

HALF-TIME: Derby 0-1 Barnsley

We pretty much opened up the second half how we'd ended the first, with a very close effort from Chaplin, via a set-play - it whistled over the bar. 

The Reds were dominant in the early moments once more but Derby were putting bodies on the line to prevent a second Barnsley goal.

A couple of bookings for Mads Andersen and Michael Sollbauer on the hour had us concerned, with the home side known for their ability from set-pieces. But Waghorn's sights weren't in, floating one just wide from 25-yards out. 

There were introductions from the bench for Herbie Kane (replacing Matty James) and Victor Adeboyejo (Dominik Frieser), and the latter would soon make a real impact.

All of Chaplin, Kane and Mowatt could have doubled the Reds' lead in the next 10 minutes but were either off-target or thwarted by Marshall in goal. 

But Victor wasn't to be stopped. The subsititute picked up the ball 60 yards from goal, he drove at the defence before curling home a superb effort from 20 yards to seal a massive three points for Barnsley. 

FULL-TIME: Derby 0-2 Barnsley

Walton, Sollbauer, Helik, Andersen, Brittain, Mowatt, James (Kane), Styles, Frieser (Adeboyejo), Woodrow (Halme), Chaplin.

Unused: Collins, Oduor, Thomas, Schmidt.
