Barnsley finished the season on 48 points, their joint lowest from a 46 game campaign. They also finished with 48 points in the relegation season of 2001-2002. Indeed if Portsmouth had not been deducted 10 points this season for entering administration, The Reds would have gone down instead of the South Coast outfit.

Barnsley won 13 of their 46 matches their lowest number since 2008-2009 when they also won 13.

Barnsley’s nine home wins, despite being two less than last season is still more than they won in 2009-2010 and 2008-2009, but their 10 defeats at Oakwell is their most home defeats in one season since 2006-2007 when they also lost 10. This campaign and that first season back in the Championship five years ago are the only times Barnsley have gone into double figures for home defeats in 18 years.

The 31 goals The Reds have scored at Oakwell has only been bettered twice since promotion, but the 37 they have conceded is the most they have let in at home since the 1961-1962 season when they conceded 41.

Overall in 2011-2012, Barnsley suffered 24 defeats home and away, their most since 2006-2007 when they lost 26 (Only bottom placed Doncaster have lost more games in the Championship this season). They scored 49 times- in the last 14 years, they have only once scored less, in 2008-2009 when they netted just 45 times- and they conceded 74 goals. They have only conceded more once in the last 10 years when they let in 85 in 2006-2007.
