Burnley 1-0 Barnsley

Last updated : 08 January 2019 By Rob Miles

A 92nd minute penalty denied Barnsley the chance to make the FA Cup Fourth Round for the first time since 2012-2013.

It also means that since beating Chelsea in the 2007-2008 Quarter-Final, the Reds have lost their last five FA Cup matches against Premier League opposition by an aggregate score of 2-15. (Burnley 0-1, Manchester City 0-5, Swansea 2-4, West Ham 0-2, West Ham 0-3)

However this was the first one of those five where Barnsley went in at half-time level.

It is the second time in a row that Barnsley have been level against a Premier League team at half-time after also being goal-less with Tottenham in the League Cup last season.

This was the first time Barnsley have lost a match in injury time since the 23rd September 2017 when a 93rd minute Alfred N'Diaye strike secured a 2-1 win for Wolves at Molineux.

VAR was used in a Barnsley game for the first time ever and it reversed a first half penalty decision initially given for a foul by Dimi Cavaré on Madej Vydra however it was overturned as Vydra was offside. It is though the first time Barnsley have conceded two penalties in one game since August 2016 against QPR.

Remarkably Burnley were awarded two penalties in one match having gone 64 games without being awarded one last doing so in the League Cup in September 2017 - this was also converted late on by Chris Wood (89th) and against a Yorkshire opponent (Leeds)

Wood who had a fairly forgettable loan spell at Oakwell in 2010 - failing to score in seven appearances - has scored in his last two appearances against the Reds, including netting a double for Leeds at Oakwell in January 2017 - with one also being a penalty.

Wood has now scored four goals in the third round for four different teams - West Brom, Brighton, Leicester and Burnley.

Each of the last three meetings with Burnley have now finished 1-0 with the Clarets winning all three.

Four of the last six have also finished with this scoreline and that includes Barnsley winning an FA Cup Third Round tie in 2013.

No team has scored more than once in any of the last six meetings with Burnley being the last team to do so in 2012.

There was 11,053 in attendance at Turf Moor - the lowest crowd at the ground for a FA Cup tie since January 2015 (9,348) - surprisingly the opponents were Tottenham.

Ryan Hedges made only his fifth start of the season and the first since November.

Barnsley have gone back to back games without scoring for the first time this season and the first time since December 2017.

It is the first time they have failed to score in their first two games of a calendar year since 2009 when they failed to score in their first three.

The Reds have now won just one of their last 11 visits to face Burnley at Turf Moor in all competitions (D2 L8), winning 2-1 in the Championship in December 2008.

Burnley have now lost just one of their last nine home FA Cup games (W7 D1)

This is the tenth time a Barnsley match has been goal-less at half time this season

Despite playing a Premier League side Barnsley enjoyed the majority of the ball possession (52%) - for the 32nd time this season

Burnley had 11 shots, the most by an opponent since Bristol Rovers also had 11 in October, however only two of those were on target including the penalty winner.

Barnsley themselves had nine efforts, but failed to manage a single shot on target for the first time this season.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said:

"We've pieced together a side and I'm pleased because that was a good Barnsley side.

"I felt we had enough to win the game and did enough to win the game, especially at the end of a big, important week for us.

"I'm a big advocate of VAR but the referee needs to hold the ball. I know they want to be right, but they do need to speed it up and those things will get ironed out.

"The referee allowed the set-up for a penalty and I know we are learning about it, but the referee should grab the ball and walk outside the penalty area, so there are no implications.

"Matej had got to the point of his run-up before the referee blew his whistle and said 'no'.

"That delay was what annoyed me - not the outcome - because once you know that is right you quickly move on."
