Barnsley 4-3 Morecambe

By Rob Miles
Last updated : 10 August 2017
Barnsley won a League Cup tie without the need for a penalty shootout for the first time since 2012.

Barnsley have now opened the scoring at Oakwell in three successive games, their best run of 2017.

Tom Bradshaw’s second minute effort is the earliest The Reds have netted since Ashley Fletcher opened the League One play-off final at Wembley in May 2016.

It is the first time he has scored at Oakwell since January when he equalised in a 3-2 win over Leeds- also the last time Barnsley won at home.

It is also the first time Barnsley have scored more than once at Oakwell since that game – 10 matches since.

Bradshaw has scored only five goals in his last 17 appearances but four of those have come in braces.

Barnsley scored four goals in a League Cup tie (excluding extra-time) for the first time since September 2000 when they defeated Crewe 4-0.

On each of the last four occasions Barnsley have netted four goals (Morecambe, Cardiff, Wolves, Rotherham) they have netted the fourth goal in the 90th minute or later.

Barnsley benefited from an own goal for the first time since October 2016. (2-1 defeat at Leeds)

It is the first time an opposition player has put into his own net at Oakwell since the first home game of last season when Derby goalkeeper Scott Carson gave Barnsley the lead.

Barnsley have conceded in each of their last six League Cup ties- a total of 18 goals.

Ryan Hedges bagged The Reds 95th minute winner, meaning he has scored an injury time goal in both of Barnsley’s games so far this season. It is the first time they have scored back-to-back last minute goals since December (against Cardiff and Blackburn)

Barnsley have conceded six goals in their opening two matches for the second successive season (4 v Ipswich and 2 v Northampton in 2016-2017)

The Reds have now conceded exactly three goals in each of their past three matches in all competitions and in five of the last seven.
