PREVIEW: Barnsley Vs QPR

The inside track on the Reds against the R's

13 December 2019

A swift return to Oakwell as Barnsley welcome QPR in Sky Bet Championship action - here's the preview.

With Gerhard Struber's men being thwarted in midweek when Reading hit back to claim a point at Oakwell, the Reds have a quick opportunity to get all three against an in-form Rangers outfit. 

Wednesday night saw yet another dominant Reds display but profligacy in front of goal and a lapse in defence ultimately saw Struber frustrated and Barnsley limited to the solitary point. 


There was an injury in the second half which saw Ben Williams replaced and he's unlikely to feature this weekend. 

The Reds' Head Coach spoke about that and the Reading clash whilst also looking ahead to the R's fixture when he spoke to iFollow Barnsley in the week along with ex-QPR defender and current First Team Coach here at Oakwell, Matt Rose.

Rangers come into this match off the back of successive 2-0 victories. This week, they beat Birmingham City away by that scoreline which backed up their impressive triumph against Preston last weekend. 

They've accrued five away victories this season so far, currently sitting 12th and just three points off the Sky Bet Championship playoff places.


Led by former Brentford boss Mark Warburton, the R's have a number of quality operators at this level, including the gifted midfield talent that is Eberechi Eze. The 21-year-old is a proficient technician who has lit up the Championship at times this season. 

The R's also have Nahki Wells and Jordan Hugill on loan. Both are proven strikers at this level having starred previously for the likes of Huddersfield Town and Preston. 


In terms of this fixture historically, it's one of the most unkind. 

Our visitors have won 28 of the matches between us, with the Reds on just 15. However, just three years ago, Barnsley ran out 3-2 winners when Josh Scowen (now at QPR) scored at the death at Oakwell.
