Barnsley have won their first three home league games for the first time since 2010-2011- also that season the third win was against a Yorkshire side- Leeds and they conceded four goals away on the opening day- QPR.
Including play-offs The Reds are unbeaten in seven home league games.
Barnsley scored as many as four second half goals for the first time since January when they put five past Rochdale in a 6-1 win.
The Reds have also scored in every game- the first time since 2012-2013 they have scored in their first six games of a season.
They have hit 12 goals in their opening five league games- the most in the division and the most they have scored at this stage of a season since also scoring 12 in the 1999-2000 season where they ended up reaching the Play-Off Final.
This was the first meeting between Barnsley and Rotherham for 11 years and The Reds are unbeaten in the last eight. The Millers have not emerged victorius from Oakwell since 1971 (11 meetings)
Incredibly this was Barnsley’s biggest win in a South Yorkshire derby since defeating Sheffield Wednesday by the same score-line way back in 1948.
Last weekend Barnsley conceded an injury time goal, yesterday they scored one. They have now scored three goals at Oakwell in the final five minutes of a game
Barnsley went on to win a game after being 0-0 at half time for the first time since April when they defeated Peterborough 1-0 thanks to a 90th minute George Williams effort.
There were 15,283 in attendance at Oakwell yesterday- the highest home league gate (excluding play-offs) since April 2015 when 17,532 witnessed a 2-0 defeat to Sheffield United.
