Barnsley 1-2 Ipswich

Last updated : 14 August 2017 By Rob Miles
Barnsley are the first team to score against Ipswich in 2016-2017 and 2017-2018

Tom Bradshaw scored in back to back games for the second time in his Barnsley career (also in 4-0 wins v Rotherham and Wolves last season)

Six of Bradshaw’s 11 goals for the club have been Barnsley’s first of the game.

Barnsley have scored the season’s first goal at Oakwell in each of the past three seasons.

Barnsley led at half time at Oakwell in the Championship for only the second time in the past 11 matches here.

David McGoldrick has now scored against Barnsley in each of the past three seasons he has faced them (2013-2014, 2016-2017, 2017-2018)

Just like Bradshaw, McGoldrick has followed up a midweek Carabao Cup brace with a goal at Oakwell.

Barnsley lost at home after opening the scoring for the first time since November when they led 1-0 and 2-1 against Nottingham Forest but were beaten 5-2.

Barnsley lost their opening two league games of a season for the first since 2013-2014 (when they were relegated) and only the third time in 19 seasons. In each of the last two seasons it has occurred (2013-2014 and 2008-2009) The Reds have sacked their manager before the end of the calendar year – David Flitcroft 2013, Simon Davey 2008.

All of the last nine goals Barnsley have conceded against Ipswich have come in the second half.

Barnsley have now won only two of their last 20 league games, and none of the last seven.

They have gone 10 home league matches without a win- their worst run since they equalled a club record of 11 in 2012-2013.

For the third time in seven league outings Barnsley lost after leading at half-time.

Barnsley haven’t scored more than one first half goal in the league at Oakwell in any of their 11 Championship matches in 2017 (and have only scored more than one goal at all in one of those games- the last home win, v Leeds in January)

Ipswich have now scored in each of their last 16 Championship matches against Barnsley and are unbeaten in the last 10 (W4 D6)

Mick McCarthy, who played over 200 league games for his hometown club Barnsley between 1977 and 1983, hasn't lost any of his last eight league encounters against the Tykes (W3 D5).

Barnsley are now just one defeat away from 2000 in all competitions.
