Barnsley 4 - Doncaster R 1


Well, what can you say about this one... a match that had everything, including going behind, a sending off, and dramatic fightback, and stylish victory. I think Davey needs to build round a 10 man formation from now on, as we showed more character, skill and drive in the second half with ten men than at any other point so far this season.

On the strength of it you would have to say Donny are in BIG trouble, as they fell apart against a rampant 10 men of Barnsley despite taking the lead in the first half.

Things were not good at Oakwell during those first 45 minutes, and the omens were bad when Darren Moore received his marching orders against his old club, I have always thought that if someone gets past him for pace then he would be in trouble, it is experience behind the ball that keeps him competitive, but he gets about as if he had been knee-capped in a past life... his rugby type tackle on the Rovers player didn't go down well with the official and being the last man, and preventing a clear run on goal, he was having an early shower.

But the reds produced a memorable fightback led by captain Stephen Foster who brought them level just three minutes after Moore's dismissal.

It ended an eight-hour wait for the Tykes to score a league goal, and the floodgates opened as Jamal Campbell-Ryce, Jon Macken and Iain Hume also netted to give Barnsley - who had only scored four goals in the league all season previously - just their second win of the campaign.

The visitors thought they had gone ahead before their 11th-minute penalty when Lewis Guy was flagged for offside after prodding in a James Coppinger cross.

The away fans did not have to wait long though as Foster needlessly pushed Guy out of the way as he sought to clear Coppinger's floated ball into the area and concede the penalty. Stock tucked it low to Heinz Muller's right despite the goalkeeper guessing the correct way to dive.

Rovers were looking the more adventurous side in the first half with the pace of Guy causing concern as he twice drifted past Moore with ease although Barnsley showed signs of recovering the deficit as Neil Sullivan was called on to make diving saves to deny Rob Kozluk and Dennis Souza before the interval.

The game continued at a frantic pace after the break although the home side were rocked after 50 minutes when Moore, who spent three seasons at Rovers in the mid-90s, was shown a straight red card after he hauled down Guy as the last man.

But just as the Tykes' afternoon looked to be going from bad to worse they ended their goalscoring drought as Foster made up for conceding the earlier penalty to tap in after a goalmouth scramble in the 53rd minute.

The Tykes fans only had to wait another six minutes to see another goal as Barnsley FC began to run riot with 10 men. Campbell-Ryce did all the work himself down the wing then cut inside the defence at the point of the area and shot low across Sullivan taking the reds into the lead.

Simon Davey, who has come in for some criticism in recent weeks, could have been forgiven for allowing himself a smile when he saw Macken score with his first touch after coming on as a substitute in the 73rd minute, a pass across the area leaving Macken with an open goal, which he gladly converted.

And Hume smashed in a long-range curling shot to the top right with five minutes remaining to seal a stunning comeback win, that will give the Barnsley players no end of confidence as we go into the next two South Yorkshire derby games against the Sheffield clubs, and with Wednesday shipping goals at an alarming rate, who knows we might not lay down for them this year.
