A Look At The Weekend Action

11 December 2011 09:45
Seven days after letting a three goal lead slip before fighting back to win, Reds throw away a 2-0 half-time lead to end up thrashed, 5-3 by Ipswich

it is the first time Barnsley have conceded five at Oakwell since a LDV Vans Trophy match with Doncaster in 2005, and the first time in the league since a 6-0 hammering by Chelsea in the Premier League way back in August 1997. It is though, the second time this season The Reds have lost a match 5-3 and the third time in three years

This result halted The Reds four match winning run and ended Ipswich’s seven match losing streak. It was also the first time Ipswich have come from 2-0 down to win a game for seven years.

On a plus note for Barnsley, Ricardo Vaz Te bagged his fifth goal in four games and Craig Davies’ brace means its eight in eight for him.
