U18s | PREVIEW: Barnsley Vs Millwall

3 April 2019

Can’t make it to Burton Albion on Saturday but still want your weekly Barnsley fix?

Look no further than our U18s clash against Millwall at the Oakwell Training Ground as our young Reds play their final home game of the Professional Development League campaign.

With two fixtures remaining, Adam Murray and Tom Harban’s side are currently sixth in the table and are looking to finish the season strongly.

Like the first team, our U18s are in a rich vein of form and, since losing five consecutive games at the back end of 2018, have gone onto pick up 24 points from their last 12 outings.

The highlight of this run was an emphatic 4-0 victory away to Coventry City in March, which saw Brad Binns, Tommy Willard and Kieran Feeney all get on the score sheet.

It will be a tough test for the young Reds, who face a Millwall side that are sitting third in the south league and have scored 59 goals this term – only Ipswich Town (67) and Sheffield Wednesday (62) have bagged more.

However, Barnsley will take confidence from the fact that they have netted 11 goals in their previous five games – the latest of which was scored by Aiden Marsh in a 1-0 win at Charlton Athletic last weekend.

You can watch our U18s for FREE at the Oakwell Training Ground on Saturday 6 April, kick-off at 11am.

U18s | REPORT: Barnsley 3-1 Millwall

7 April 2019

Two wonder goals saw the young Reds claim victory against Millwall in their final home game of the season on Saturday.

A ferocious Brad Binns volley and a stinging effort from Aiden Marsh, his second of the game, set the two sides apart in the second half in a game where both teams had dominant spells.

Barnsley began in style when Will Lancaster’s looping free-kick from distance cannoned high off the crossbar and back into the goal mouth, and, with a group of players waiting to get on the end of it, Marsh came out on top as he smashed in from close range with the goal gaping.

Ten minutes later, though, momentum began to swing in the Lions’ favour as a neat passage of play brought them level. A great ball put Abdul Abdulmalik through on the wrong side of the hosts’ defence, who showed good pace running in on goal before squaring the ball to Sean O’Brien for a simple finish.

Henry Kendrick did well to come out of his goal and close down the angle to deny Jay Barton and prevent the visitors from getting a second in quick succession. While, at the other end, Charlie Winfield tested Joe Wright following a driving run into the area.

HALF-TIME: Barnsley 1-1 Millwall

On 55 minutes, the Reds had Callum Walmsley to thank for his goal line clearance after Kendrick got a touch but couldn’t quite keep Abdulmalik’s shot out.

Barnsley were then awarded a free-kick in the middle of the park, which was sent into area and only partially cleared by Millwall. Binns, in space, took full advantage of this, lining himself up and hitting the ball first time into the back of the net, capping off a fine performance from the midfielder.

From here on, Adam Murray’s side started to take control and Marsh produced another moment of magic – bearing down on the centre of the goal, he drove a pinpoint shot into the top left corner to give his team some breathing space heading into the closing stages.

Still, the Londoners weren’t down and out, and Barton went close to setting up a nervy ending. He did brilliantly to control the ball in the box and make room for himself to shoot, which he did, with the ball clipping the bar on its way over.

Goal of the day will perhaps be up for debate amongst the dressing room after this weekend’s performance, a good dilemma to be having ahead of the Reds’ final game of the season away at Queens Park Rangers.
