Big spending Brighton & Hove Albion, in addition to having secured some big name personnel combined with the Reds aversion to travel away from Oakwell to give us a reight tonking on a windswept South coast.

The stand in Barnsley keeper who did well against Boro on the opening day did have a part to play in the ensuing carnage, providing the home side with help in the first two goals.

With the Seaguls boasting names on the team sheet like Wayne Bridge and Lua Lua, it was going to be a difficult day without handing out freebies.

Even Wayne Bridge managed a goal, his first in nine years of football, he fired in Brightons second from 25 yards after Ashley Barnes got the Seaguls opener. The five goals were the floodgates opening after a previous four games without a goal from Brighton.

We got back in touch fleetingly through a Craig Davies spot kick against his old employers, but two goals from Craig Mackail-Smith and another from Barnes completed a miserable day on the South coast for Keith Hill and his men, after the positive play and dominance at home against Boro, this defeat and the one against Wolves in mid week was a bitter pill to swallow, as the Tykes continue the famous Jackyl and Hyde impression we have seen in recent seasons.

Brighton took the lead as Barnes pounced on a fumbled ball by keeper Gonzalez following a noone freekick.

Wayne Bridge on loan from Premiership Champions Manchester City doubled the lead with a rare strike, the Reds were making things way too easy for Brighton.

Later on in the half a bit of positivity from Barnsley resulted in Jacob Mellis being brought down, and Craig Davies stepped up to bring the scoreline back to a one goal lead, but the two goal margin was quickly restored by Mackail-Smith scoring from a Bruno Salter cross to go in at the break 3-1 up and looking very comfortable against an injury ravaged Barnsley.

Mackail-Smith got his brace in the second half putting the result beyond any doubt, it could have been more than five on the day, Barnes made it five on 81 minutes firing in from Kazenga LuaLua's pull back.

A day to forget for the Reds with two defeats away from home in a week, we have to pick up results at Oakwell, and hope to get some of the threadbare squad back in action very soon.
