Wolves 0-4 Barnsley

Last updated : 15 September 2016 By Rob Miles (BarnsleyBoy)

This was Barnsley’s biggest away league win for exactly four years when they thumped another Midlands side Birmingham 5-0 in September 2012.

It is the first time they have scored four Championship away goals since defeating Yeovil 4-1 in March 2014.

Barnsley have won back to back away Championship matches for the first time since March 2014 when they won 3-1 at Reading and then 4-1 at Yeovil.

For the second time in three games a Barnsley game was goal-less at the break before The Reds went on to score four times.

This match was still without a goal at the 73rd minute mark, it is the first time they have scored four times after this point since the 5-0 win over Rochdale on the final day of the 2014-2015 season when they scored on 76, 84, 90 and 93.

Barnsley had 10 shots on target last night (out of a staggering 26), the most since managing 11 in a 1-0 win over Peterborough in April- when the winner came in the 90th minute

This was Barnsley’s biggest win over Wolves since a 5-0 win at Molineux in 1991 and their first at this ground for 25 years! They had lost each of the previous seven.

Barnsley inflicted on Wolves their biggest home defeat since 2012

Barnsley have won three successive Championship games for the first time since February 2013 when they won four.

Barnsley have so far scored six goals in the last 10 minutes of matches – including three last night.

A Barnsley game was goal-less at half time for only the third time in 12 outings.

This is now Barnsley’s best start to a season since the Premier League promotion winning  1996-1997 campaign when they had 18 points from the first seven matches after winning six of those games.

The Reds continued their record of scoring in every game- the first time since 2012-2013 they have scored in their first seven games of a season (in all competitions)- they managed to score in the first ten that season.

Overall Barnsley have now scored in each of their last 13 matches- the 0-0 draw at Sheffield United in April is the last time they drew a blank.

They have hit 18 goals in their opening seven league games- the most in the entire Football League and the most they have scored at this stage of a season for SIXTY SIX years when they had bagged 20 in the 1950-1951 season. At that point they were fifth in the Second Division but finished 15th.

Overall now in Championship and League One Barnsley have lost only two of their last 13 games on the road, winning eight.

This was Barnsley’s 20th league win in 2016 (excluding play-offs) it is their most in a calendar year this century! Their previous best was also 20 in 1999.

A substitute striker scored for the third game running, Tom Bradshaw against Rotherham and Wolves and Adam Armstrong at Preston.

Saidy Janko scored his second ever Championship goal- 17 months after his first, for Bolton in a 3-1 win over Fulham in February 2015.
