Barnsley 1-1 Stoke City

Last updated : 10 March 2022 By Rob Miles

Barnsley were seconds away from cutting the gap to safety to just three points but had to settle for a five point deficit following the third game out of their last five in which they have conceded an injury time goal – which in total has cost them three points.

It is the second time this season an injury time goal has cost Barnsley victory – also at QPR in August, prior to this season it hadn’t happened at all since March 2018 with twice in a season the most since 2012-2013.

This was Barnsley’s first draw in 14 matches (all comps) and only their ninth in the league this season.

It is their first stalemate of 2022 – with the 8th March being the latest that Barnsley have drawn their first league game in a calendar year since 2015 when the first did not come until the 17th March – they went on to draw three in a row and six of the next eight!

For the third game in a row no yellow cards were shown to an opposing player in a Barnsley match and it has occurred in four of the last five matches.

This was the fifth time this season Barnsley have opened the scoring and not gone on to win – the same amount of times it occurred in 2020-2021 however three of those occasions last season happened in successive games.

Barnsley and Stoke have shared the same scoreline (1-1) in both league meetings this season, the first time this has occurred for Barnsley with an opponent since Swansea last season who they lost 2-0 both home and away in the regular league season.

It is the first time they have drawn both league meetings against an opponent since 2019-2020 when they did so against Wigan, Swansea and West Brom.

It is the first time Barnsley and Stoke have drawn both league meetings since 2007-2008 (3-3 and 0-0) however they have now drawn three of the last four league meetings.

Barnsley are now unbeaten in their last four meetings with the Potters (W1 D4) and have lost only two of the last 10 (W2 D6 L2)

Each of the last three Oakwell meetings have ended in draws and have all been a different scoreline, 2-2, 0-0, 1-1.

Barnsley have now won only two of the last 11 Oakwell meetings (W2 D6 L3) – prior to this they had won eight in a row at Oakwell.

There have been five 1-1 scorelines for Barnsley this season – the most since 2019-2020 (also 5)

Stoke manager Michael O’Neill said:

"We played some good football and I'm disappointed not to win. We had a lot of good chances.

"We needed a good reaction to the game on Saturday, which was poor. But I was impressed with Barnsley tonight. They played at a good tempo.

"In the second half they came into the game a little bit more, it was end-to-end and they scored a brilliant goal. But the reaction to going behind was very good."
