Despite having the third best away record in the division (8 wins, 2 draws, 6 defeats) they now have the sixth worst home record (6 wins 5 draws 6 defeats) and they have three more points on the road than at Oakwell.

The Reds have lost only one of their past six away matches but have lost two of their last three at home.

Since the start of 2016, Barnsley have lost 15 of the 57 league games they have played (Including play-off semi-finals) eight have come at home and seven away.

Brighton completed a first league double over Barnsley since 1991-1992 and it was their first victory at Oakwell in six visits.

Barnsley have now failed to score against Brighton in each of the last three meetings,  it is the first time since 2011-2012 and the fourth time overall that they have failed to score in both league meetings in a season (also 1984-85 and 1971-72)

This was Chris Hughton’s 100th league game as Brighton manager and his 50th win, as a manager he is unbeaten against Barnsley (with Brighton, Norwich, Birmingham and Newcastle) W4 D3.

This was the ninth time Barnsley have failed to score in the Championship this season, three of those have come in the last four outings; four of the nine have been at home.

Barnsley have gone back-to-back home games without a goal since March last year when they lost 2-0 to Southend and drew 0-0 with Scunthorpe.

On the bright side, this was only Barnsley’s fifth defeat in their past 20 league matches.

No Barnsley player picked up a booking for the first time in 10 games in all competitions, it is only the fifth time it has occurred in the league this season.
