Barnsley 1-1 Ipswich Town

Barnsley conceded an injury time goal for only the second time this season.

The 93rd minute Tom Lawrence goal was the latest they have conceded in the Championship in 2016-2017 as the only other injury time effort- scored by Huddersfield’s Jonathan Hogg back in August came after 92 minutes.

The two injury time goals Barnsley have conceded have cost them a total of three points.

This goal was the latest Barnsley have conceded since the final home game of the regular season last year against Colchester when Tom Lapslie’s 98th minute strike rescued a point in a 2-2 draw.

This was Ipswich’s sixth draw in a row, five of which have now been 1-1, however this was the first time in that run that they had to come from behind.

Five of the last six Barnsley/Ipswich clashes have now ended in draws, four of them 1-1.

Barnsley have gone nine games against the Tractor Boys without defeating them and have won only one of the last 11 meetings.

Barnsley have now won only one of their past nine Championship matches and have failed to win any of their last five games at Oakwell.

Barnsley opened the scoring in a match in the second half for the sixth time this season and this was only the second time they have not gone on to win- both have coming in the last three outings. (Record: W4D1L1)

This was the 14th time a Barnsley game has been goal-less at half time and the third time in the last five outings. The Reds records when 0-0 at half time this season now reads - W:4 D:6 :L:4.

The Reds have now failed to score a first half goal for five successive game- they have netted only two in their past ten outings and both came in the same game, the 3-1 win at Aston Villa.

Head coach Paul Heckingbottom made only one substitution in the match, the least amount he has made all season. Hecky had made all three changes in each of the six matches prior.

This one change occurred in the 79th minute, in the past three matches Heckingbottom has made a total of five substitutions between the 70th and 80th minutes.

In 2015-2016 Marley Watkins scored in eight separate games for Barnsley and they won seven and lost one, he has now netted in eight separate games in 2016-2017 but the Reds record reads W2 D:3 L:3.

Watkins is only the second player (so far) to score in both fixtures against another Championship team for Barnsley this season. The now departed am Winnall scored both home and away against Birmingham.
