Match Previews

U23s | PREVIEW: Barnsley Vs Leeds United

8 March 2020

Barnsley U23s are back in action on Monday afternoon when they welcome Leeds United to the Oakwell Training Ground.

The original fixture between the two Yorkshire rivals on 28 February was postponed due to adverse weather conditions.

Martin Devaney’s side are currently eighth in the Professional Development League, while United are pushing hard for a place in the end of season play-offs at the very least.

Carlos Corberan’s youngsters sit third in the table, firmly poised for a tilt at the North division title – six points behind leaders Nottingham Forest, with a game in hand.

This game could mark a competitive return for Jasper Moon, who has been out since September with a broken leg sustained against Wigan Athletic.

Prior to the postponed game, the young central defender spoke of his delight at returning to fitness and he is raring to go against Leeds.

“I’m very excited,” said the 19-year-old. “Obviously, it’s been five months since I played my last game, so I’m looking forward to it against a tough opponent in Leeds. They might have a few first team players, so it’ll be a great challenge to test myself.

“The lads in training are in good spirits, so I think if we just keep talking and bonding then we’ll be able to turn it round.”

You can see how our young Reds fare by attending the Yorkshire derby for FREE at the Oakwell Training Ground, kick-off at 2pm.

Any supporters wishing to attend this game are politely reminded not to park on Grove Street, but to park in the CK Beckett South Stand car park.

Match Reports

U23s | REPORT: Barnsley 1-1 Leeds United

9 March 2020

Aiden Marsh’s penalty ensured Barnsley U23s claimed a share of the spoils against Leeds United in the Yorkshire derby.

It was no less than the hosts deserved after falling behind to Bobbie Kamwa’s close range finish midway through the second half.

The young Reds were arguably the better side throughout against a strong visiting team, who fielded Barry Douglas, Ian Carlo Poveda, Jamie Shackleton, Tyler Roberts and Ezgjan Alioski at the Oakwell Training Ground.

Martin Devaney opted to deploy a back five, with Jasper Moon starting his first competitive game since September alongside Mads Andersen and Ali Omar, while Jordan Helliwell and Dani Pinillos occupied the full-back positions.

Chances were few and far between as Barnsley worked tirelessly to regain possession in midfield, predominantly through the energetic Ethan Erhahon and Alex Wollerton.

The closest either team came to scoring was through Andersen, who rose highest under pressure but could only head Pinillos’ free-kick over the bar.

HALF-TIME: Barnsley 0-0 Leeds United

Harry Gagen was introduced at the interval for Moon, who completed a tough 45 minutes as he continues his return from injury – and he was immediately in the thick of things, showing great composure to head back to Corey Addai with Roberts lurking dangerously.

Leeds began to show signs of creativity and soon registered their first shot in anger through Poland U21 international Mateusz Bogusz, who stung the palms of Addai from the edge of the area.

But the deadlock was soon broken as Poveda – on loan from Premier League champions Manchester City – burst down the right flank and picked out substitute Kamwa, who converted from inside the six-yard box.

Barnsley could have crumbled following that goal, but they rallied and were awarded a penalty when Angus Chapman was clumsily hacked down by Untied stopper Elia Caprile.

The young striker confidently stepped up and dispatched his spot-kick into the top corner with unerring confidence to level the scores 13 minutes from time.

That would prove to be the encounter’s final talking point as both sides settled for a point in a keenly contested Yorkshire derby.


REDS XI: Addai, Helliwell, Andersen, Moon (Gagen, 46), Omar, Pinillos, Wollerton, Erhahon, Simpson (Barnett, 76), Willard (Chapman, 65), Marsh.
