HUDDERSFIELD TOWN PREVIEW

4 February 2022

Everything you need to know ahead of our short trip to Kirklees to take on the Terriers on Saturday!

It's a break from league action this weekend as Poya Asbaghi takes his struggling Reds side a few miles up the road to tackle Huddersfield Town in the fourth round of this year's Emirates FA Cup.

Having scraped past Sky Bet League Two minnows Barrow at Oakwell in the previous round, Barnsley have Championship opposition on this occasion.

The Reds have lost five consecutive league fixtures and sit at the foot of the division, with relegation looking more and more likely and the most recent of those defeats, in midweek against Cardiff City on home soil pretty much summed up our campaign.

Without being overly threatening or opening up the visitors from Wales, the Reds certainly dominated the Bluebirds, from start to finish.

ASBAGHI PRE-TERRIERS

But again, a goal conceded in embarrassing fashion - the away side's only attempt on target all night - condemned Asbaghi's boys to an 18th loss in 21/22. And then, in added time, the Reds scored what was later proven to be a perfectly good equaliser from Aaron Leya Iseka, only to see the officials rule it out for offside.

The Swedish coach then, still looks for a first league victory. It's a torrid run. But he did see his side emerge victorious in this competition back in January when after extra time, Barnsley won 5-4 against Barrow. 

Just one of three victories in 30 league and cup games in 21/22. 

The Cardiff game saw debuts for both Domingos Quina and Amine Bassi. Both loanees impressed whilst on the pitch, but the former is unavailable on Saturday, having played for Fulham in the previous round.

We also saw returns for both Liam Kitching and Carlton Morris, as the Reds regain numbers following the recent COVID outbreak. 

Our hosts in the FA Cup at the weekend have really kicked on since we met at the start of December last year.

GOMES PRE-TERRIERS

They came into that fixture hovering around mid-table, inconsistent. But they dominated at Oakwell. And after Lewis O'Brien put them into a deserved lead, the crossbar saved the Reds from further woe before Morris coolly slotted home to grab us a late equaliser.

Huddersfield are unbeaten since our encounter. Ten matches. They're up to fifth in the Championship table and saw off Premier League strugglers Burnley in round three of this competition.

On our last visit to the John Smith's Stadium, in April of last year, the Reds won 1-0. In a match where we outplayed our hosts all night, we had to wait until a second half Daryl Dike volley sealed it. 

That was our last away win.

In the middle controlling the action will be Jeremy Simpson. The Lancashire native has been active for over 25 years. 

The referee hasn't taken charge of a Reds game this season. His last Barnsley match being our 2-0 home defeat in January of 2021 against Swansea City.

A reminder that there will be no replays in this round of the Emirates FA Cup. The tie between the Reds and Town will therefore go straight to extra-time and potentially penalties should the score be locked after 90 minutes.

Each team will also be able to name nine substitutes on the bench, with five of those players allowed onto the pitch across the 90 minutes in three separate opportunities – four including half time.

If the game goes to extra-time, any of the remaining five substitutes can be used in one extra opportunity.

We've a sell-out 2,336-strong crowd at the JSS this weekend!

For Reds fans going to Kirklees by train, please note that there is a football special service both pre and post-match.

REDS BOW OUT OF FA CUP

5 February 2022

Barnsley exited the Emirates FA Cup after a 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

Duane Holmes scored the only goal of the fourth round tie on a blustery day in West Yorkshire.

Poya Asbaghi made six changes from the midweek defeat to Cardiff City, with Jack Walton continuing his appearances in the cup competitions, while there were full debuts for loan signing Amine Bassi and academy graduate Aiden Marsh. Aapo Halme also made his return from injury.

After an uneventful start from both sides, Huddersfield took the lead with the first real chance of the game when Holmes latched onto Josh Koroma’s headed knockdown and confidently drilled low beyond Walton.

Within moments, the Reds were almost level through a huge piece of luck as Naby Sarr sliced Liam Kitching’s devilish left wing cross against his own post before the ball bounced across the face of goal and out of play.

Former Town academy graduate Jordan Williams, who made a bright start to the contest, then had time to pick his spot from inside the area but could only lash wildly into the stand behind.

Just after the half hour mark, Walton was forced into action following a quick Huddersfield counter-attack as he got down smartly to parry Koroma’s effort before Mads Andersen blocked Jon Russell’s follow-up.

Shortly before half-time, the hosts had a glorious opportunity to double their advantage as Koroma stole in ahead of Williams, but Walton raced out to smother the danger on the edge of his box.

HALF-TIME: Huddersfield Town 1-0 Barnsley

After a lacklustre first half, Barnsley rung the changes at the interval and introduced Michał Helik, Josh Benson and Carlton Morris in place of Halme, Marsh and Aaron Leya Iseka.

It appeared to have the desired effect, despite playing against the wind, the Reds had control of midfield and created a couple of good chances before the hour mark.

First, Benson just couldn’t quite get enough on a deft flick from inside the six-yard box before he then turned provider for Kitching at the far post, but his header sailed harmlessly beyond the upright.

The Reds were in the ascendency, and the ever-influential Morris drove down the left flank, cut back on his right foot and whipped a fine effort narrowly wide.

With Barnsley committing players forward in search of an equaliser, gaps began to open up and the Terriers thought they had a second only for Sorba Thomas to be denied by an offside flag.

Town substitute Daniel Sinani flashed a long-range effort wide before Danny Ward saw his low effort brilliantly tipped onto the post by Walton moments after being introduced from the bench.

As we entered three minutes off added time, Benson floated an inviting cross into the box that Helik headed into the bottom corner, only for referee Jeremy Simpson to controversially chalk off for a push on Matty Pearson, although replays suggest contact was minimal.

It was harsh on the Reds, who battled hard and were unable to force at least extra-time.

FULL-TIME: Huddersfield 1-0 Barnsley

 

REDS XI: Walton (GK), Williams, Andersen (C), Halme (Helik, 46), Kitching, Gomes, Palmer (Cole, 77), Marsh (Benson, 46), Bassi, Styles, Leya Iseka (Morris, 46).
