……The Reds abysmal run now stands at one win in 15 and they have gone 14 matches without keeping a clean sheet, equalling a run they set 12 months ago between November 2011 and February 2012.
This defeat also ended a brilliant run at London Road. Before today’s 2-1 defeat The Reds had won on each of their five previous visits.
Barnsley have gone 13 years since they last started a New Year on a winning note.
On a brighter note, striker Marlon Harewood managed only his second goal of the season and his first on the road since April 2011.
