Around the Grounds in 4,131 Miles

16 June 2015

Ahead of tomorrow morning's highly-anticipated 2015/16 Sky Bet League One fixture release, we take a look at the distance the Reds will be travelling across the country.

The Reds' longest trip of the season is, in fact, Southend United - with Barnsley's last visit to Roots Hall on Friday 25th January, 2008. Jamal Campbell-Ryce scored a stunning goal against his former side as the Reds won 1-0 in this FA Cup 4th Round tie to send his side to Anfield.

Lee Johnson's side's shortest journey is to Sheffield United's Bramall Lane, where Sam Winnall's header won all the points last November.
