A Barnsley game was goal-less at half time for the first time in five matches, but it is the second time in the last three at Oakwell where no goals were scored in the first half.
It is only the third time this season a Barnsley game has been goal-less at the break in the Championship (2 at home, 1 away)
The Reds have failed to win any of their last 10 league games that were goal-less at the break (D4 L6) The last time they secured victory from this point was the 28th January when a 70th minute Adam Armstrong strike secured a 1-0 win at Rotherham.
The last time Barnsley won at Oakwell when the score was 0-0 at the break was way back in August 2016, and again it was against Rotherham (4-0)
Callum Paterson broke the deadlock after 83 minutes - the latest the deadlock has been broken in a Barnsley match this season.
It is the latest overall since the 2nd January when Conor Hourihane netted an 88th minute winner at Nottingham Forest.
Barnsley failed to score at home in the league for the third time this season (including in two of the last three) They only failed to score in five home games in the entirety of 2016-2017.
In the last four Barnsley - Cardiff meetings, four goals have been scored after the 80th minute.
Barnsley have failed to score in three of the last four Oakwell clashes with the Bluebirds.
They have not scored more than once in any of the last nine home meetings (failing to score in four of those)
It means they have won only one of the last nine home league matches against Cardiff (D2 L6), a 1-0 win in November 2009.
Cardiff City who have been turned from relegation candidates to promotion hopefuls under Neil Warnock have won six of their last 10 away matches in the Championship and now have the third best away record in the division
Only Wolves (9) have kept more clean sheets in the Championship this season than Cardiff (8) and the Bluebirds with 13 have conceded the least amount of goals in the division.
Barnsley had 57% ball possession, meaning they have enjoyed more ball possession than their opponents in three successive matches.
Barnsley managed just one shot on target last night – their lowest amount at Oakwell since returning to the Championship.
For the second home game in succession no Barnsley player was booked – the only two occasions this has happened this season.
Harvey Barnes (for Hedges 64)
Tom Bradshaw (for Thiam 64)
George Moncur (for McGeehan 74)
