Southend United 2-4 Barnsley

Last updated : 04 December 2018 By Rob Miles

Another four goal haul saw Barnsley safely into the Third Round of the FA Cup, they have now netted eight times in this season's competition, their most since the 2014-2015 season whey they also netted eight - 5 v Burton and 3 at Chester. One side has scored four in each of Barnsley's last three FA Cup ties as Millwall won 4-1 in last season's Third Round.

That 2014-2015 campaign is also the last time the Reds have reached the Third Round as a third tier team.

However Barnsley have now qualified for the Third Round in three of the last four seasons they have started in the First (2017-2018, 2014-2015, 2005-2006), the one exception was 2015-2016 when they were knocked out by non-league Altrincham in the First Round.

This was the fifth time Barnsley have netted four goals this season, the most it has occurred since 1999-2000 when they scored four or more on six occasions.

Three of those four goal hauls have come away from home.

This was the second time Barnsley have scored four goals in an FA Cup tie and the 19th time in the club's FA Cup history (also doing so in 2014, 2005, 1999, 1993, 1989, 1985, 1979, 1962, 1953x2, 1947, 1936, 1931, 1927, 1910x2 and 1906)

It is only the second time they have ever scored 4 or more twice in the same FA Cup season, also doing so in 1909-1910 when they defeated Blackpool 6-0 in a First Round Replay and then Bristol Rovers 4-0 in the Second Round in a season where they finished runners up in the competition.

There were six goals scored in a Barnsley FA Cup tie for the first time since 2011-2012 when they lost 4-2 to Swansea in the Third Round.

Both Kieffer Moore and Cauley Woodrow have now scored in both rounds of the FA Cup, prior to this match Brad Potts had scored in successive FA Cup games after netting against Notts County and, last season, Millwall, however Moore and Woodrow are the first Barnsley players to score in successive FA Cup games in the same season since Chris Dagnall in 2012-2013 when he netted at Hull in the Fourth Round and then at MK Dons in the Fifth Round.

Moore has now scored in both games against Southend, after netting an 87th minute winner in the Oakwell league meeting in November. He is the first Reds player to score against the same opponents twice in one season since 2016-2017 when Marley Watkins scored in both Championship encounters with Ipswich and Blackburn and Sam Winnall scored home and away against Birmingham.

It was Moore's 13th goal in 20 appearances this season and he has now scored in nine different games this season including five of the last six.

However this was only the third time that Moore has opened the scoring this season.

Cauley Woodrow continued his rich vein of form with a brace, he has now scored five goals in seven appearances and has scored in four of his last five outings.

Its means Woodrow has scored three FA Cup goals in 2017-2018 so far, the most in one season by a Barnsley player since 2014-2015 when Sam Winnall also scored three - all in one game, a 5-0 First Round victory over Burton.

Barnsley have opened the scoring in five away games this season (all comps)

Home and away they have opened the scoring in 15 of their 25 games and have lost only once - at Blackpool in the EFL Cup.

In this match Barnsley conceded in first half stoppage time and scored in second half injury time, the second time this season goals have been scored in both these periods - also the 4-0 win at Peterborough.

It is the second time Barnsley have conceded in first half stoppage time this season - also v Luton.

Mike Bähre grabbed Barnsley's late fourth with the goal arriving after 95 minutes. It is the fourth post 90th minute goal Barnsley have scored this season and this is the latest of them all.

45+4 is the latest Barnsley have conceded in the first half since February when Burton's Jacob Davenport also scored at this time for Burton at Oakwell.

This was the tenth occasion this season a Barnsley match was level at half time.

Both Barnsley FA Cup games have been level at half time this season

Indeed not including replays each of Barnsley's last seven FA Cup ties have been level at the break.

Both teams scored in the last five minutes of the first half, the first time this has occurred in a Barnsley game since the 31st October 2017 when Brad Potts netted for the Reds on 40 and Lloyd Dyer scored for Burton on 45+3.

This was Barnsley's seventh away win of the season (all comps) the most since 2016-2017 when over the entire season they won nine.

It is the first time Barnsley have ever scored four goals at Roots Hall, however they have knocked the Shrimpers out of the FA Cup on three occasions (2-1 at Roots Hall following a 2-2 draw in 1938, 1-0 at Roots Hall in 2008)

Five of the six goals in this match came from corners.

For the second successive game Moore headed home a Mowatt corner, it was Mowatt's eighth assist of the season, four of which have been for Moore.

There has been 12 goals in Barnsley's last two matches, both ending 4-2.

In all competitions it is the sixth time this season a Barnsley game has seen one team score four times, the most in a single season since 2016-2017 (also six times)

Daniel Stendel is the first Barnsley manager to win his first two FA Cup games in charge since David Flitcroft who won his first three.

This was the first time Southend had been past the First Round of the FA Cup since 2013-2014, it is the first time they have lost a Second Round tie since 2011-2012 when they lost in a replay to Oldham.

Barnsley once again enjoyed more ball possession than their opponents (59%) - still no side has enjoyed more ball possession than Barnsley this season.

This was the most Barnsley have enjoyed in six outings since having 60% against Everton's Under 21s in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Barnsley had 16 attempts at goal, their most on the road since Charlton (17)

Ten of those were on target, the most in any match since Scunthorpe away in August (also 10)

Southend had only two shots on target (scoring with both) the lowest by a host against Barnsley since Coventry in September (also 2)

As mentioned before five of the six goals scored originated from corners, there were 19 in total, the most in a Barnsley match this season.

Southend had 11 of these, the most by a Barnsley opponent since April when Sheffield United won 11 at Oakwell.

Southend manager Chris Powell said:

It is disappointing in the end, but we should have got back to 3-3. We get the second goal, that gives us a chance, and then without a shadow of a doubt we’ve scored a legitimate third goal.

I’ve asked the officials and they’ve told me the goal scorer was offside. I’ve been in to see them and they said the goal scorer was offside, they never mentioned about the two lads that are running in but they’ve got a defender as well.

It’s a goal, it really is a goal and that’s 3-3 and then, of course, you either get the fourth or it’s a draw, but we’re chasing it and its 4-2 in the end. Massive, massive turning point and the point in the game that everyone will go home talking about.
