Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Barnsley

By Rob Miles
Last updated : 29 October 2017
 
Barnsley managed to avoid defeat at Hillsborough for only the third time in 34 years, spanning a total of 17 visits.
 
This was only the second draw between the two sides at Hillsborough in 19 meetings- they also drew 2-2 on the opening day of the 2009-2010 season.
 
Barnsley have now conceded first in this fixture (home and away) in each of the last four and five of the last six.
 
After falling behind at Hillsborough, Barnsley came back to equalise for only the second time in the last six occasions that they have fallen behind.
  
Following a 1-1 draw at Oakwell in April, Barnsley are unbeaten in back to back games against Wednesday for the first time since 2008-2009 (a run of four)
 
Five of Barnsley's last seven goals against Wednesday have come in the second half.
 
The Owls are now unbeaten in nine meetings with The Reds.
 
Barnsley have won two of their last 20 league matches in Sheffield (D6 L12), winning one against United (1-0 in November 2014) and one against Wednesday (1-0 in February 2009)
 
After a run of 104 games, stretching back to November 2015, Nick Townsend's consecutive run of being on the Barnsley substitutes bench ended following his loan move to Solihull last week. Jack Walton made the Reds bench for the first time since October 2015.
 
This meant Adam Davies made his 105th successive start but he has now kept only one clean sheet in his last 18 league outings and he has failed to keep a shutout in any of the last 10 games (all comps)
 
Barnsley have had only one clean sheet from their first 13 league games this season (against Sunderland) - their worst start to the season clean sheet wise since 2013-2014 when they did not manage any shutouts until their 15th league match.
 
Adam Hammill has been shown a card in each of Barnsley's past three games with Wednesday, he followed a straight red card in the 2-0 defeat at Hillsborough in December with a yellow in the 1-1 Oakwell draw in April and yesterday's game.
 
Sheffield Wednesday had 22 shots in the game, the most Barnsley have conceded in the league on their travels in 2017-2018. They last allowed more at Bristol City in April (24)
