History of the Barnsley v Blackpool fixture

Barnsley are ready to welcome Blackpool to Oakwell on Monday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Tykes are clearly on top, winning 55.81% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Oakwell was within the last three years, in October 2005, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League One match.
