History of the Sheffield Wednesday v Barnsley fixture

Barnsley face a trip to Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Tuesday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 21 out of 31 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in October 2006, the The Owls carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a Championship match.
