Everything you need to know about our away clash on Wednesday night, as we take on the Potters in Sky Bet Championship action!

The Reds make the 80-mile trip south west on Wednesday evening for a 7.45pm clash with high-flying Stoke City in the Sky Bet Championship.

It offers a swift opportunity to make amends for the disappointing display in Dorset at the weekend, where Barnsley were put to the sword by AFC Bournemouth.


A game in which the Reds failed to test the opposition goalkeeper at the Vitality Stadium ended in a 3-0 defeat that could and perhaps should have been much worse.

It left Markus Schopp's side on six points after as many games; just the solitary victory to show for their efforts so far in 21/22.

The boss - already without the services of all of Jordan Williams, Rémy Vita, Liam Kitching, Mads Andersen, Josh Benson, Obbi Oularé and Carlton Morris - saw Ben Williams fall victim to another injury, as the Welsh full-back was cynically taken out by the Cherries in the opening quarter of the game.


With none of the above likely to feature in Stoke during midweek, the Austrian coach will have to again pick from a limited pool of players for the visit to the bet365 Stadium. But he will certainly be expecting a much better performance from his side on Wednesday night.

You have to go back to April's 1-0 success at near-neighbours Huddersfield Town for our last win on our travels, although Saturday's reverse in Bournemouth was our first defeat on the road this season, having previously picked up points at both Cardiff City and QPR.

And the Reds have failed to win on their last three visits to the Potteries. Our last victory at this venue was also a 1-0 win, back in 2007 when Istvan Ferenczi scored the only goal of the game.


The Potters are in very good form at the start of this new campaign, in third place, with four wins, a draw and just the one defeat so far in 21/22. Still led by former Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill, they've won five out of five at home so far, including two Carabao Cup victories. 

O'Neill made a pair of astute-looking additions to his squad in the summer when he welcomed young Bournemouth forward Sam Surridge to the club and the gifted midfielder Mario Vrancic who left newly-promoted Premier League outft Norwich City. 


But it's been former Reds forward Jacob Brown who has caught the eye so far this season. The 23-year-old left Oakwell in the summer of 2020 and endured a tough first season at the bet365, whilst Barnsley made the play-offs. But he's been in sparkling form for Stoke this term, with a couple of goals and assists in their impressive start to the new campaign.

Midlands-based referee Leigh Doughty takes charge of the game on Wednesday. The 31-year-old last took control of a Reds fixture in February of this year as we saw off Millwall 2-1 at Oakwell.


With the fixture being broadcast by Sky Sports, there are no video passes via iFollow Barnsley. 

But audio commentary is available with Matt Bailey and Callum Cooper on the mic from 7.35pm.

15 September 2021

Barnsley took a share of the points after a 1-1 draw with Stoke City tonight.

Some outstanding goalkeeping from Brad Collins and a spectacular Cauley Woodrow free-kick saw the Reds pick up a well-earned point on their trip to the bet365 Stadium.

Stoke had been in top form, losing just one of their first six matches of the new season, that loss coming to fellow play-off sitters Fulham just before the international break, and despite Barnsley looking the most likely to go ahead here in the early stages, it was the hosts who opened the scoring.

Shortly after a powerful Woodrow shot had tested Joe Bursik in the Potters goal, O'Neill's men went up the other end and with their first real attack, took an early lead.

It came just after the quarter-hour mark when a Tommy Smith low cross across the box wasn't cleared by the Reds backline and summer signing Sam Surridge calmly slotted it home from six yards.

Barnsley needed a bit of magic and seven minutes before half-time, Woodrow was that magician with a wondrous free-kick from all of 25 yards, leaving the Stoke keeper grasping at thin air as the ball curled into the top left corner.

In additional time at the end of the opening 45, Surridge found himself one-on-one with Collins inside the box, but fell to the ground under no contact from the out-rushing 'keeper. The referee, Leigh Doughty decided there had been a foul and pointed to the spot, booking Brad in the aftermath as well as the protesting Michał Helik.

Our goalkeeper shut out the noise, and with the last action of the half, he tipped Mario Vrancic’s penalty onto the bar as the Bosnian international tried to hit it straight down the middle. Justice had been done.

HALF-TIME: Stoke City 1-1 Reds

The Reds clearly had the better team talk as they were fast out of the gates in the second half with bright football, as substitutes Victor Adeboyejo and Claudio Gomes entered the fray.

But Stoke continued to be a nuisance in the final third with two quick corners, one leading to a Vrancic cross finding Surridge unmarked at the back post, but a great save kept the scores level.

Another incredible save from Collins came soon after with a reaction stop to deny Vrancic from getting on the scoresheet with a free header. 

There were nearly moments for the Reds at the other end, as Woodrow saw a deflected free-kick turned behind by Bursik, Brittain fired wide from the edge of the box before he sent in a delightful cross that somehow Adeboyejo bundled wide from a yard out.

But it was Collins again to the rescue, pulling off another out-of-this-world save to deny Surridge from three yards out.

Stoke had to see the game out with ten men when Tommy Smith was shown red with six minutes remaining after a heavy tackle on Gomes, before emotions got the better of staff and players alike in the Barnsley technical area with referee Doughty sending off two of Stoke's coaching staff and the Reds' assistant coach Jo Laumann. 

Nevertheless, a battling performance saw the Reds head back to Oakwell with a valuable point.

FULL-TIME: Stoke City 1-1 Reds

Collins, Sibbick (Hondermarck), Halme, Helik, Moon, Styles, Brittain, Palmer (Gomes), Leya Iseka (Adeboyejo), Woodrow, Frieser.

Unused: Walton, Sraha, Cole.
