Barnsley FC 1
The match which started with the celebration of 125 years of Barnsley history eventually ended up in a draw. Another good home performance and a decent point against a very impressive, solid looking Blackpool side who arrived at Oakwell topping the table.
Craig Davies was on hand once more to fire the Reds into an early lead with a long range shot, that continued the party atmosphere at Oakwell, and a crowd bolstered by the £12.50 admission charge for the day, something that should be repeated in order to get bums on seats.
The celebrations were halted on 30 minutes as Thomas Ince fired home following a Gary Taylor-Fletcher pass.
The teams strove for the winner, but the game ended in a respectable point a piece as the Reds remain unbeaten at Oakwell this season, with only one goal conceded, not a bad record, and the total of our 7 points on the board so far.
Scott Goldbourne was on hand to clear off the line as Tiago Gomes went close to getting the lead for the seasiders.
Then Blackpools Alex Baptiste forced a save from Alnwick as he hammered an effort in from 25 yards out that was parried over the crossbar.
Jacob Mellis found Craig Davies on 14 minutes who fired Barnsley into the lead from 20 yards out.
Blackpool at times dominated and pressed the Reds until they broke through in 30th minute as Ince got through the Barnsley defence into the area and calmly slotted home his fifth goal of the season.
Baptiste and Gomes had chances to take the lead, but once again the Reds were resiliant at the back.
