History of the Huddersfield Town v Barnsley fixture

Barnsley pack their bags to visit Huddersfield Town at Sir Alfred McAlpine Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Tykes will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 18 and win only 5 of the 30 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was within the last three years, in September 2002, the Terriers carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a League Division Two match.
