.Ben Alnwick suffered a red card on his Barnsley debut in the 90th, which meant Bobby Hassell- who had only been on the pitch five minutes- had to go into goal. That incident forced the game into extra time but The Reds triumphed to progress into the second round of the League Cup for the first time since 2009.
It was also the first time they had scored a goal in the competition since that year and it is the most they have scored in one League Cup tie since beating Crewe 4-0 in 2000.
It was also Barnsley’s first victory at Spotland since 1979 and the first time they have won their opening game of the season in seven years.
