Derby 2-1 Barnsley

Barnsley went in at half time with a 0-0 scoreline for the 13th time this season- beating last season’s tally of 12 throughout the whole campaign. The last time they had more than 13 half time 0-0s was in 2013-2014 when there were 16.

The Reds record this season after going in goal-less now reads W:4 D:5 :L:4.

This was the first time this season Barnsley have lost away from home when they have opened the scoring- they had won all the other seven away matches in which they had gone 1-0 up.

It is the third time overall that they have lost when opening the scoring- also the home games with Fulham (2-4) and Nottingham Forest (2-5).

Barnsley’s lead at the iPro lasted just two minutes, the shortest amount of time they have led in a game since the home game with Fulham in October which lasted only one minute- Sam Winnall made it 2-1 on 41 minutes but Sone Aluko equalised on 42.

Matty James scored his first goal in over three years. His last came in February 2014 for Leicester in a 2-2 draw with Watford when an ex red also netted for the Foxes- Danny Drinkwater.

Derby had 23 shots on goal- the most Barnsley have faced this season, beating the 22 that Cardiff, Fulham and Aston Villa managed.

Barnsley have now won only one of their last six meetings with the Rams (a 2-0 win at Oakwell earlier this season)

They have failed to win any of the last five at Derby- losing each of the last three. They have now lost nine of the last 13, winning only once (2009)

Barnsley have won only one of their past seven Championship matches (W1 D3 L3) whereas this was Derby’s first win in seven.
