Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 Barnsley

Barnsley’s Hillsborough hoodoo continues against their local rivals as they have now lost on 14 of their last 16 trips to S6.

Only once since 1983 have they won there- in 2009.

Home or away Barnsley have now failed to win in seven league clashes with the Owls- losing five.

Angus MacDonald opened the scoring last night with an own goal, the first EVER in this fixture (a total of 69 clashes in 116 years)

It was the first own goal Barnsley have conceded at all for 63 league matches, since Lewin Nyatanga put into his own net in a 4-1 win against Swindon back in September 2015.

Adam Hammill was shown a straight red card in the 83rd minute, the fifth red card shown in the last four Barnsley/Wednesday clashes (there were three issued in the last meeting at Hillsborough in 2014)

Since the turn of the century the two teams have met 22 times and there have been 11 red cards issued seven of which to Barnsley players- Adam Hammill, Emmanuel Frimpong, Jacob Mellis, Rob Kozluk, Paul Heckingbottom- who was also sent off from the dugout last night, Paul Warhurst, Carl Regan.

This was actually Barnsley’s heaviest defeat at Hillsborough since 2001 (3-1) and The Reds conceded a first half goal in this fixture for the first time in four.

The Reds failed to score on the road for only the third time this season and the fifth time home or away.

Barnsley’s defeat was finalised with a goal in the 80th minute- the seventh time they have conceded in the final ten minutes at Hillsborough in 13 visits.

Barnsley conceded on the road for the first time in four games, if they had managed to keep a clean sheet it would have equalled their longest ever run without conceding on the road, set in 1984.
