Reserves Share Points With Swans

20 October 2014

Reds 1 (Hodd 32)
Swansea 1 (Gorre pen 82)

Barnsley Reserves had to settle for a point - their first of the season - against Swansea on the Oakwell training pitch this afternoon.

Trialist Harvey Hodd sent the Reds into a 31st-minute lead via a deflection as Barnsley enjoyed the majority of chances throughout the 90.

Youngster Hodd managed to dig out an effort from 20-yards that wrong-footed Swansea 'keeper Oliver Davies with what was probably the Reds' least threatening attack of the afternoon.

For a side who have yet to gain a point so far this season, the Reds showed no signs of lacking in confidence as McKnight, Maris and Noble-Lazarus bossed midfield.

Swansea got back on level terms via a penalty from Kenji Gorre, son of former Oakwell favourite Dean, after defender Jack Cowgill was adjudged to have handled the ball inside his own box on 82 minutes.

The game should have been put to bed as Maris blazed a free header over and McKnight cushioned wide from the edge of the box after a great counter in stoppage time.

The Reserves are next in action on Oakwell next Tuesday against Sheffield Wednesday at 7pm, with admission information to be confirmed.

Reds: Dibble, Towney (Patterson 80), Smith, McKnight, Holgate, Cowgill, Noble-Lazarus, Hodd, Oates, Maris, Jennings (McHale 55).
Subs not used: Boakye-Yiadom, Rusling.
