Match preview: Owls v Barnsley

2 September 2022


Wednesday v Barnsley
Saturday 3 September
League One

Wednesday head into Saturday’s South Yorkshire derby in excellent form.

After back-to-back league wins over Bolton and Forest Green Rovers, the Owls also progressed comfortably in the Carabao Cup against Rochdale.

Wednesday were beaten 3-1 in the Papa John’s Trophy trip to Bradford in midweek in a game that saw manager Darren Moore completely freshen up his side.

But four wins and one draw from the opening six League One fixtures has seen Wednesday move up to third in the division, albeit in the very early throes of the season.


Having dropped down from the Championship last season, Barnsley have had a mixed start to their campaign.

Michael Duff’s side are without a win in their last four outings, including a 3-0 home league defeat to Wycombe and a draw away at Ipswich, while also slipping to losses against Leeds in the Carabao Cup and Lincoln in the Papa John’s Trophy.

The Reds have seven points from their opening six games.


Wednesday: Dennis Adeniran will miss out this weekend through injury.

Ben Heneghan is back on the grass at Middlewood Road and making good progress but will not feature on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Wednesday are in good shape for the South Yorkshire derby.

Having made 10 changes for the clash against Bradford, the gaffer could revert to a similar squad that comprehensively dispatched Forest Green Rovers 5-0 last weekend.


Barnsley: The Reds could hand new recruit Adam Phillips his debut at Hillsborough.

The midfielder joined Barnsley on deadline day from Burnley, signing a three-year contract.

Josh Martin, on loan from Norwich, and Tom Edwards from Stoke could also make their first appearances for our visitors.

Defender Jordan Helliwell is sidelined with injury for a period of six to eight weeks.

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 0-2 Barnsley

3 September 2022

The derby spoils went to Barnsley as they dismantled the best home record of the year to beat the Owls 2-0 at Hillsborough.

Goals either side of half time from Devante Cole and substitute James Norwood – who scored with his first touch – dealt Wednesday a rare home defeat.

And on balance it was no more than the Reds deserved, who kicked off with some confidence and maintained much of that standard throughout.

The Owls spent large periods on the back foot in the first half. One particularly impressive move saw Liam Kitching burst menacingly into the danger zone but the end product was missing.


The Reds imposed their authority and David Stockdale was relieved to see a thunderbolt from Cole whistle wide.

But the keeper could do nothing to prevent the same player open the scoring on 33 minutes.

Cole took full advantage of a ricochet that broke his way, darted down the right of the penalty area and drilled across Stockdale into the far corner.

The Owls did up the ante before the break but certainly needed to find another gear for the second period.


And right from the restart, Lee Gregory was a whisker away from connecting on a floated pass into the box from Barry Bannan.

But the Reds promptly broke upfield and Luke Thomas almost doubled the lead, curling a clever shot over Stockdale only for the ball to bounce back into play off the crossbar.

Back came Wednesday and Tyreeq Bakinson executed a delicious feed to Gregory six yards out but Reds shot-stopper Brad Collins came out on top.

The Owls made a triple change just past the hour, on came Mallik Wilks, Alex Mighten and Reece James and Michael Smith swiftly followed.


But it was Barnsley that again went close to going two up, this time Stockdale produced a stunning save to thwart Jack Aitchinson.

From the resulting corner, though, the game was taken from Wednesday’s reach. Luca Connell delivered an inch-perfect cross for the rising Norwood, who planted a firm header into the roof of the net.

Smith went close as the clock ticked down, denied by a fine Collins save at his near post, and that was about as good as it got for the under par Owls on an afternoon to forget.

Wednesday: Stockdale, Palmer, Iorfa, Ihiekwe, McGuiness (James 64), Johnson (Smith 70), Byers, Bannan, Bakinson (Mighten 64), Windass (Wilks 64), Gregory
