Barnsley 2-0 Yeovil

Barnsley won successive home league games for the first time this season and the first time since February/March 2014. 

Those 1-0 wins over Millwall and then Nottingham Forest were also the last time The Reds kept successive home clean sheets.

On loan Stoke striker George Waring opened the scoring on his professional debut.

On the other side of the scale to Waring, Conor Hourihane reaffirmed his status as the club’s top scorer with his 12th goal of the season and he has netted in successive home league matches for the second time this season.

Hourihane’s 12 goals have come in 11 matches, of which only three have ended in defeat.

Barnsley played against ten men for the second successive game and there has now been three red cards shown in the last four Barnsley matches.

Ben Nugent is the first opposition player to be shown a first half red card in a Barnsley match since Brian Stock for Burnley in the FA Cup in January 2013.

It has not happened in a league match since Blackpool’s Keith Southern in April 2012.

Yeovil were the first team to fail to land a shot on target against Barnsley since Doncaster in November 2013. That game finished goal-less.

Barnsley went in at half time goalless for the first time in eight league matches. This is the fifth time it has happened in 2014-2015 and only the second time The Reds have gone on to win.

Today was Yeovil’s third ever visit to Oakwell and they are still yet to win.

The Glovers prop up the division, five points adrift of safety and they have lost five games in a row in all competitions for the first time since October 2012.
