REPORT: Budaörsi SC 1-1 Barnsley

20 July 2018

The Reds capped off a training camp in Hungary with a 1-1 friendly draw against Budaörsi.

With exceedingly hot temperatures in Budapest, the hosts and Daniel Stendel's Barnsley side played out an entertaining draw. 

The Reds enjoyed much of the early running and dominated their opponents, using the ball well up until the final third where the first goal just wouldn't arrive. 

With Tom Bradshaw and Kieffer Moore linking well up top, the goal seemed right on the horizon but a combination of good defending and poor timing kept it goalless. Bradshaw was seemingly brought down for a penalty but the referee waved play on.

Budaörsi took the lead against the run of play when their left winger found space before pulling the ball back into the box for a cracking finish high and into the net beyond the dive of Reds stopper Jack Walton.

The Hungarians could have added to that soon after when Walton had to be at his very best to divert a powerful drive onto his crossbar.

Moore and Mama Thiam both went close with fierce shots on goal, before Moore and an opponent were sent off when the big man reacted with frustration after the Budaörsi defender had chopped him down from behind.

HALF TIME: Budaörsi 1-0 Reds

There was a raft of changes in the second half and almost immediately from the restart, parity was restored. 

A wonderful passing move from the Reds' own third right into the oppositions eventually saw George Moncur in on goal and he finished with aplomb to level the match.

Headed chances from Liam Lindsay and Adam Jackson were thwarted by the 'keeper and Lloyd Isgrove saw his wonderful set-piece saved superbly to keep the game tied.

The heat had taken its toll by now and the last 10 minutes was a little flat, but Stendel will have seen things to work with as his squad prepared to return to the UK following a hard week working away.
