Reds v Bournemouth: Half Time

22 March 2014

Reds 0
Bournemouth 0

Barnsley have done just about everything right but score this afternoon against Bournemouth but there's still plenty of football left for the Reds to get something.

The Reds came flying out of the traps and really looked up for it, notching a shot on target inside 20 seconds. Stephen Dawson won the ball by pressing and crossed for O'Grady whose header was straight at Camp.

The visitors responded on five minutes with a low shot at Steele from Fraser but he palmed away comfortably.

Wilson really had the Reds fired up and Jennings sent a wicked shot in that deflected over for a corner on 14 minutes. A minute later Dawson once again won the ball before fizzing in a low shot off the greasy surface that Camp handled well.

A vicious strike from Ritchie almost caught Steele out on 18 minutes with the ball swerving in the air from 25 yards but Steele punched it away from danger and wide.

On 29 minutes the Cherries had a great chance to take the lead as Surman found himself one-on-one with Steele but dinked an effort wide of the far post.

It really should have been 1-0 and to the Reds this time as Martin Woods fired wide when presented with practically an open goal. O'Grady's cross for Pedersen was flapped at by Camp but Woods couldn't guide the rebound home from 15 yards.

Two minutes of stoppage time was added to the first half but neither side could find a breakthrough.
