Npower Championship Matchday Nine: Scunthorpe United v Barnsley

28 September 2010 11:38
Match Preview Team News: Full-back Jay McEveley is out as Barnsley make the relatively short trip to Glanford Park tonight. The 25 year old suffered a badly bruised foot in the first half on Saturday and will be replaced by Luke Potter who will make his first start of the campaign. Garry O’Connor is also a doubt after requiring an injection in his injured thigh, but Kieran Trippier is fit again Likely Lineup: Luke Steele Luke Potter Jason Shackell Stephen Foster Bobby Hassell Adam Hammill Diego Arismendi Jacob Butterfield Jim O’Brien Chris Wood Garry O’Connor/ Andy Gray Head To Head: Barnsley are winless for 30 years at Scunthorpe- 32 in the league and have lost four of their five trips to Glanford Park, including the last two. Barnsley and Scunthorpe met three times last season, with the two sides cancelling each other out in a 1-1 draw at Oakwell in December. Hugo Colace had given The Reds the lead in the 53rd minute, before ex Red Paul Hayes equalised just five minutes later. Teams: Barnsley: Steele, Kozluk, Foster (Moore, 46 ) , Dickinson, Shotton, Doyle, De Silva (Campbell-Ryce, 73 ) , Hammill, Colace, Macken, Bogdanovic (Hume, 63 )  Subs not used: Hallfredsson,Preece,Hassell,Gray,  Scunthorpe: Murphy, Byrne, Mirfin, Williams ( Friend, 29 ( Andrew Wright, 63 )) , Jones, Togwell,Thompson, Josh Wright, McCann, Hayes, Hooper ( Forte, 77 )  Subs not used: Lillis, Spence, Boyes, Sparrow,  Unfortunately that was not the last we would see from Hayes as he also netted in two Glanford Park meetings in early 2010. Two days into the New Year, the sides were paired together in the FA Cup Third Round, with Hayes grabbing the only goal after 68 minutes. Scunthorpe: Lillis, Byrne, Mirfin, Williams, Jones (Milne, 46 ) , Togwell, Woolford (Sparrow, 89 ) ,Thompson, Josh Wright, Hayes, Forte  Subs not used: May,O'Connor,Crosby,Slocombe,Coleman,  Barnsley: Steele, Foster, Dickinson, Hassell, Shotton, Butterfield ( Hammill, 75 ) , De Silva ( Campbell-Ryce, 57 ) , Hallfredsson, Colace, Gray ( Macken, 76 ) , Bogdanovic  Subs not used: Kozluk, Moore, Preece, Hume,  And then the man who scored 17 times in 89 appearances for Barnsley hit an injury time winner in the league in February after Daniel Bogdanovic had cancelled out Gary Hooper’s opener.

At the time Scunthorpe were winless at home since mid September but were 2-0 up thanks to goals just before and just after half-time from Ian Morris and Kelly Youga. A wonderful half-volley from Grant McCann after his initial free kick had been blocked brought Barnsley back into the game with 15 minutes to play, and in the SEVENTH minute of stoppage time, Andy Crosby handled in his own area allowing Brian Howard to coolly chip home the spot kick. Teams: Scunthorpe: Murphy, Youga, Crosby, Baraclough, Williams, Hayes (Taylor, 77 ) , Goodwin, Morris,Cork, Hurst (Forte, 77 ) , Paterson (Ameobi, 82 )  Subs not used: Lillis,Seck,  Barnsley: Muller, Foster, Guedes, Nyatanga ( Mostto, 84 ) , Van Homoet, Campbell-Ryce, Togwell,Howard, Devaney ( McCann, 46 ) , Odejayi, Ferenczi ( Coulson, 46 )  Subs not used: Ricketts, Hassell,  Barnsley’s last victory at Scunthorpe came whilst the team played at their Old Showground home. The Reds won 1-0 in their League Cup First Round First leg tie in 1980, before winning the second leg 2-1 at Oakwell. Their last league victory in the Lincolnshire town arrived two years previous, winning 1-0 in September 1979.

The 45 year old former physio had twice led the club into the Championship and managed to keep them up last season despite having virtually no money to spend. Iron chairman Steve Wharton once again decided to keep the managerial position in house and appointed Adkins’s first team coach Ian Baraclough on a caretaker basis. The former Scunthorpe defender made a blistering start, winning his first match 4-0 at Sheffield United! The Iron lost the next two matches, 2-0 at Swansea and 5-2 at home to Manchester United in the Carling Cup, but Baraclough was handed the reigns permanently on Friday 24th September and in his first permanent match in charge, he earned a credible 1-1 home draw with promotion challengers Ipswich. Scunthorpe have a shaky record at their Glanford Park home this season having won just once- 3-0 against Crystal Palace in August- and lost two of their four matches. Barnsley are searching for their first away win in 12 since a quick fire Daniel Bogdanovic brace earned a 2-0 success at Cardiff in February. Only bottom placed Leicester City have conceded more away than The Reds this season and their home form is the complete opposite of their away record. The Reds have won three and drawn one at Oakwell, but away from home they have drawn one and lost three. They haven’t kept a clean sheet on their travels since a 0-0 draw at Sheffield United in April.
