Coca-Cola Championship Matchday Thirty Six: Barnsley v Scunthorpe United

08 March 2011 11:11
Match Preview Team News: The Reds could stick with the same side that ground out a goal-less draw at Derby at the weekend for the visit of relegation haunted Scunthorpe. Jay McEveley came through his first game in five months unscathed. Stephen Foster is still missing but Bobby Hassell could return to the squad. Barnsley have not found the net in three of their last four games but are limited for options in attack so Garry O’Connor and Marlon Harewood could get a second go at forming a partnership. Likely Lineup: Luke Steele Jay McEveley Jason Shackell Paul McShane Kieran Trippier Diego Arismendi Jacob Mellis Nathan Doyle Danny Haynes Garry O’Connor Marlon Harewood Head To Head: Scunthorpe 0-0 Barnsley Match Report 28/9/10  Scunthorpe 2-2 Barnsley Match Report 1/1/08 Barnsley 2-0 Scunthorpe Match Report 15/9/07 Barnsley 5-2 Scunthorpe Match Report 10/12/05 Scunthorpe 2-1 Barnsley Match Report 9/8/05    Last Six Barnsley v Scunthorpe results: 28/9/10 Scunthorpe 0-0 Barnsley (Championship) 16/2/10 Scunthorpe 2-1 Barnsley (Championship) 2/1/10 Scunthorpe 1-0 Barnsley (FA Cup) 9/12/09 Barnsley 1-1 Scunthorpe (Championship) 1/1/08 Scunthorpe 2-2 Barnsley (Championship) 15/9/07 Barnsley 2-0 Scunthorpe (Championship) Interesting Stats: Scunthorpe are looking for their first league victory at Oakwell in 52 years. They have not left with the three points since a 1-0 win in March 1959. The Iron have lost their last six matches away from home but have managed six victories on their travels this season- the joint most outside the top eight. They are though searching for their first away goal of 2011! Barnsley are without a win in six matches and have registered just 14 points out of a possible 42 so far in 2011.
