Barnsley 1-1 Huddersfield

Barnsley did not lose after conceding the first goal for the first time in eight games (3-2 win over Leeds) 

For the first time this season Barnsley did not lose when behind at half-time. They have been behind at the break on eight other occasions, and all had ended in defeat.

This was Barnsley’s eighth league draw of the season, and one of only four that have not been 0-0.

The Reds have now gone four home matches without a win (D2 L2) and have won only one of the last six and three of the last 15 at Oakwell.

Barnsley conceded the opening goal at Oakwell for the eighth time this season, four of those have come in the last five home matches.

Barnsley ended Huddersfield’s six-match winning league run but have now won only one of the last eight clashes with the Terriers.

This draw however means Huddersfield have failed to do a league double over Barnsley since 2002-2003 (met in five seasons since)

Huddersfield came into the match having won their last two matches against Barnsley but they have now failed to win three in a row since 1957.

Adam Hammill delivered only his second assist of the season; both have set up Barnsley’s last two goals at home.

There were seven yellow cards brandished in this game, the joint most in a Barnsley game this season – also home games with Leeds, Aston Villa, Reading and Derby.

Huddersfield collected five of those yellows, the most by a Barnsley opponent since Bury exactly 12 months ago (23rd February 2016)

Barnsley have today reached what is perceived to be the magical 50 point mark to ensure survival. It is the quickest Barnsley have gained 50 points at this level since 1999-2000 – they had 61 points after 34 games in that campaign and were fourth in the table.

Huddersfield forced 10 corners today, the most an opponent has won at Oakwell this season.

The attendance of 18,075 was the second highest at Oakwell so far this season, beaten only by Newcastle’s visit in October (18,597)
