Barnsley 1-1 QPR

Barnsley failed to score in their last home match - against Aston Villa but have scored first half goals in all their other six games at Oakwell this season - their best record at the 

start of a season since 1999-2000 (scored first half goals in 6 of first 7 home matches)

Barnsley led at half time for only the fourth time in 11 matches this season, but the second time out of the past three home league matches.

Joe Williams is the second Barnsley player to be booked in successive matches this season, after Jason McCarthy.

Each of the last three goals Barnsley have conceded have arrived in the final ten minutes of a game.

This was the eighth game Harvey Barnes has scored in during his career and it isthe first he has not finished on the winning side (Aggregate score in games he has scored in: 24-8)

This stalemate ended a run of 10 Barnsley/QPR meetings without a draw. The last time the two sides ended level against each other was in February 2008 (0-0) The aggregate score since
(prior to last night) was Barnsley 15-23.

It was also the first time in five meetings that Rangers had not scored at least twice in a game against Barnsley.

Luke Freeman's 87th minute equaliser means The R's have lost only one of their last five trips to Oakwell. That solitary success was 3-2 last season, and The Reds have failed to win back
to back home games against QPR since 2002.

12 of the last 15 goals scored in Barnsley/QPR meetings have been scored in the second half. The last time there no second half goals in this particular duel was in April 2011 when Adel
Taarabt scored the only goal... in the first minute.

Ian Holloway's side avoided defeat on the road for only the third time in 12 outings- all three matches have been at the home of Yorkshire sides (also 0-0 at Leeds and 1-1 at Sheffield

The Reds have won only two of their last 14 home league matches.

There were just six shots on target in the game (three for each team), the lowest in a Barnsley match for 27 games (also six in the 0-0 draw at Reading in February) It is the lowest
amount an Oakwell crowd has witnessed since the goal-less draw with Wigan last November (5)
