A Look At The Midweek Action
Another excellent home win moves Reds to within four points of safety….
….Barnsley have now lost just one of their six games under David Flitcroft and none of the last five. It is their longest unbeaten run since September 2011.
The Reds have won four of their last five matches and kept four clean sheets in those five. Before this run they had gone 14 matches since their last shut out.
This win was their first on a Tuesday for exactly 12 months and gives them their first league double over Millwall in 17 years following the 2-1 victory at the Den last month.
Under Flitcroft The Reds have conceded in the first half just once- in his first match, the 2-1 defeat at Peterborough. Before this, Barnsley had conceded in the first half in nine of the previous 10 matches.
Jason Scotland grabbed a debut goal for The Reds tonight within just ONE minute of coming on. The last player to score on his debut for The Reds was Garry O’Connor against Leeds in September 2010.
Fellow striker Chris Dagnall also scored tonight, his fourth goal in four games. Before this run he had scored just twice in 28 games for The Reds, and both were in the same game, the Capital One Cup victory at Rochdale in August.
Barnsley have now won their last three home matches, all without conceding a goal. Before this they had gone 11 home matches without victory- a joint club record- and had conceded in all 11.
This was only the second time in 11 games that Barnsley did not have a played booked.
Jason Scotland (for Harewood 66)
Jacob Mellis (for O’Brien 73)
Danny Rose (for Dagnall 82)
