QPR 2-1 Barnsley

Barnsley’s atrocious record at Loftus Road continues. The Reds have now lost on each of their last TEN trips and on 16 of their last 17.

They have only ever won ONCE at Loftus Road (now from 25 visits) and that was 67 years ago. Remarkably they won 5-0 and as well as the only win it remains the only clean sheet Barnsley have managed at QPR.

Idrissa Sylla’s goal was the third fastest Barnsley have conceded this season (Sean Morrison 3 minutes for Cardiff and Kortney Hause 5 minutes for Wolves the earliest)

Barnsley lost when Tom Bradshaw has scored for the first time. They had previously won five and drawn one of the other six games in which he had netted.

His goal was the first scored by a Barnsley substitute for 15 games since Marley Watkins netted in a 2-0 win over Blackburn back on Boxing Day.

Angus MacDonald netted Rangers’ crucial second goal, turning the ball past his own goalkeeper. He also scored an own goal at Sheffield Wednesday back in December, making him the first Barnsley player to score two own goals in the same season since Chris Morgan back in 2001-2002.

Barnsley have suffered back-to-back defeats for only the third time this season and it is only the third time they have suffered successive away defeats.

Barnsley failed to score a first half goal for the fourth successive game- they have netted only two in their past nine outings and both came in the same game, the 3-1 win at Aston Villa.

Barnsley have won only one of their past eight Championship matches (W1 D3 L4)
