The one- all derby resumed this weekend as these two shared the spoils via this score-line for the fourth successive time at Oakwell and indeed the fifth time in eight meetings overall.
Indeed each of the four games have seen a different manager in both dugouts:
⦁ October 2013 - Barnsley: David Flitcroft, Wednesday: Dave Jones
⦁ April 2017 - Barnsley: Paul Heckingbottom, Wednesday: Lee Bullen
⦁ February 2018 - Barnsley: Paul Harsley, Wednesday: Jos Luhukay
⦁ February 2020- Barnsley: Gerhard Struber, Wednesday: Garry Monk
In each of the last four 1-1 draws Wednesday have opened the scoring with the Reds coming back to level with the last two at Oakwell seeing Wednesday score between the 15th and 18th minutes and Barnsley quickly equalise between the 20th and 25th.
It continues the Reds wretched record against their neighbours having now gone 12 games since last tasting victory over the Owls (D6 L6) with four of the last five ending level.
It is now 11 years since Barnsley defeated Wednesday, winning 1-0 at Hillsborough in February 2009 and 12 years since an Oakwell success winning 2-1 in October 2008.
Barnsley have now gone eight games since they last opened the scoring against Wednesday - Marcus Pedersen in October 2013 is the last player to do so but, unsurprisingly, that match finished 1-1.
Barnsley have now failed to win any of their last 51 Championship matches in which they have conceded the first goal, (D11 L40) since defeating Leeds 3-2 three years ago (21st January 2017)
Cauley Woodrow hauled Barnsley level with a speculative effort following an error by Owls keeper Cameron Dawson to score for the third game in a row for the third time in his Barnsley career.
Former Barnsley defender Garry Monk has faced Barnsley four times as a manager with three different clubs and has finished on the winning side only once (a 2-1 win as Leeds manager in October 2016) D2 L1. Monk was actually in charge of the opposition the last time Barnsley won a Championship game when conceding the first goal.
Barnsley only committed seven fouls in the game, their lowest amount this season and lowest since the final home game of 2018-2019 against Blackpool (6)

Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk said:
"We knew it was going to be a battle. I think for both teams, being a local derby, it was a fight to win that battle.
"I appreciate it was difficult conditions being a derby, but we have to be able to make decisions at the right times. We didn't do that at the right times.
"The competitive side was there from both teams, but both teams didn't show that care on the ball. The times we did that, we looked a threat, but it just let us down today.
"This is a big job, there's a lot of things that need to be corrected to move forward. Everyone is frustrated, I'm frustrated we're in a patch where we're not coming out the right side of it."
