Match preview: Barnsley v Owls

20 March 2023

Barnsley v Wednesday
Tuesday 21 March
League One


Two of League One’s form sides go head-to-head on Tuesday night at Oakwell.

League leaders Wednesday are unbeaten in 23 games, while the Tykes also boast an excellent run of results - unbeaten in 11, with seven wins from their previous eight games.

The South Yorkshire derby is one of two midweek fixtures taking place in the division, as Plymouth also head to Accrington on the same night.

Barnsley’s run since late January has catapulted the Reds into the automatic promotion reckoning.

After picking up a 1-0 win over Wycombe at Adams Park on Saturday, Barnsley are eight points off second spot but have two games in hand.

The Owls were held to a 1-1 draw by Bolton on Friday night at Hillsborough and now face three consecutive games on the road, starting with the Tykes.


Darren Moore’s side then head to Forest Green on Sunday and then Cheltenham a week on Wednesday.


Wednesday: Dominic Iorfa returns from suspension after serving his one match ban on Friday night.

The defender picked up two yellow cards in our 1-0 win over Portsmouth at Fratton Park.


George Byers (hamstring) is rated 50/50 for the clash with the Reds.

Elsewhere, Reece James, Josh Windass and Lee Gregory will be assessed after picking up injuries against the Trotters three days ago.

Barnsley: The Reds have no fresh injuries concerns.

Manager Michael Duff will have the same group from which to select that picked up a 1-0 win over Wycombe on Saturday.


Tickets for this fixture have sold out to visiting supporters.

We received 4,635 tickets for the short trip to Oakwell.

Report | Barnsley 4-2 Wednesday

21 March 2023

Wednesday’s 23-game unbeaten run finally came to an end as Barnsley took the bragging rights at Oakwell.

The Tykes emerged with a 4-2 win from a game that could have gone either way.

Devante Cole and James Norwood gave the home side the perfect start to put Wednesday on the back foot but Darren Moore’s men battled back to 2-2, courtesy of a Lee Gregory brace.

Substitute Max Watters restored the lead towards the end of a pulsating derby duel before Liam Kitching gave the scoreline something of a flattering look deep into stoppage time with Wednesday hunting a share of the spoils.


After a typically cagey opening, Barnsley broke ranks and dealt a double blow, scoring two quickfire goals.

On 10 minutes, Cole darted clear down the left angle of the box and slid beneath Cameron Dawson to light the Oakwell touch paper.

Straight from kick-off, the white hot atmosphere went up another notch when Norwood advanced across the 18-yard line and unleashed a whistling drive right into the bottom corner.

The shellshocked Owls regrouped and from the half-hour mark of a thrilling first half, it was Barnsley who found themselves under the cosh.


Dominic Iorfa headed a Barry Bannan free kick over the top and on 32 minutes, Wednesday went one better and halved the deficit.

Will Vaulks sprayed a superb ball down the right channel for Michael Smith, who advanced to look up and pick out Gregory to net from close range.

The Reds sought a way out from the pressure and Dawson flung himself to his left to keep out a firm Norwood header.

Wednesday wrestled back control. Aden Flint was off target from Marvin Johnson’s feed before, with half time looming, Harry Isted made the save of the game to preserve the hosts’ advantage.


After Gregory and Dennis Adeniran both had shots charged down, Bannan delivered an unplayable cross that Smith was favourite to finish only for Isted to produce a stunning reflex stop to deny the big striker.

The frantic pace stayed the same after the break and the Owls had the edge, prodding and probing for an equaliser.

There were half chances at both ends – Smith for Wednesday and Norwood’s last act before being substituted.

Wednesday ramped up the dominance, winning a succession of corners, but Barnsley stood firm, relying on counters to stem the flow.


But on 74 minutes the pressure told and the Owls deservedly levelled.

Bannan was central once more, swinging deep to Johnson, who crossed low and hard for Gregory to gobble up at the back post.

The pendulum was with Wednesday, Liam Palmer was inches off target with a speculative half volley and Flint skewed wide from Bannan’s set piece.

But just as Wednesday looked odds-on to nick a winner, Barnsley went back into the lead against the run of play.


A mini scramble in the area saw the ball land kindly to Watters, who smashed high past Dawson to threaten the Owls run of resistance.

And with Wednesday pressing forward for another leveller, the Reds countered and Kitching finished Luke Thomas’ cross to complete the deed.

Wednesday: Dawson, Palmer, Iorfa, Flint, Famewo, Johnson, Vaulks, Bannan, Adeniran (Dele-Bashiru 66), Smith, Gregory
