Recent meetings with the Reds

30 March 2017

The Owls head into Saturday’s clash at Oakwell undefeated in the last seven meetings with Barnsley.

Here, takes a look back at those recent meetings with the Reds.


Owls 2-0 Barnsley

Wednesday were victorious in the last meeting at Hillsborough. 

An own goal from Angus MacDonald broke the deadlock when the defender inadvertently put past Adam Davies, from Lucas Joao’s downward header.

Sam Hutchinson’s strike ten minutes from time wrapped up the points for the hosts.


Owls 1-0 Barnsley

Few will forget the dramatic conclusion to this derby clash in February 2014.

With the clock running down, and the ten-men of Wednesday being held by the nine-men of Barnsley; step forward Chris Maguire!

The striker collected possession 25 yards from goal and slammed a low strike beyond Luke Steele in stoppage time to seal a big victory for the hosts.

Barnsley 1-1 Owls

The Reds took the lead in this Oakwell clash through Marcus Pederson but Wednesday hit back strong in the second half and got their reward with a Matty Fryatt equaliser.

Reda Johnson flicked on to locate Fryatt in space and the loanee hitman struck an unstoppable drive that positively rippled the back of Jack Butland’s net on the hour.


Owls 2-1 Barnsley 

The Owls sealed three crucial points in this relegation battle late in the 2012/13 campaign.

Gary Madine and Reda Johnson scored the goals, though Wednesday endured a nervy finish after Madine missed a penalty, Lewis Buxton saw red and Barnsley grabbed a late consolation through Jacob Mellis.

Barnsley 0-1 Owls

Earlier in the 2012/13 season, the Owls bagged all three points at Oakwell in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Chris O’Grady struck the only goal of the game ten minutes before the interval.

It brought an end to a poor run of form, consisting of seven straight defeats for Wednesday.


Barnsley 1-2 Owls

Tommy Spurr opened the scoring at Oakwell in January 2010, prodding home from close range after three minutes, before Emil Hallfredsson’s centre deceived Lee Grant to level the game.

But midway through the first half, Jermaine Johnson latched on to a bouncing ball in the box and drilled high into the roof of the net to emphatically regain the Owls’ lead.

The reverse fixture in 2009/10 came on the opening day of the campaign in August.

Wednesday took an early two-goal lead with Jermaine Johnson and Michael Gray on target.

Barnsley came back to post a point, as Jacob Butterfield and Jon Macken hit back for the visitors in the second half.
