Coca Cola Championship - Date: 30/9/08
Reds still can't find killer touch in front of goal, despite taking control during large parts of this game. Muller made a couple of uncharacteristic mistakes, which also makes the 3-0 scoreline look like it was much easier for Ipswich, fact is Barnsley again dominated, but a bigger fact remains... it still ended in defeat. We need to sort of the goal shortage... and fast.
But Barnsley did make history in the 3-0 defeat at Ipswich as Reuben Noble-Lazarus made Football League history, the headlines will go to Barnsley substitute Noble-Lazarus, who became the youngest player to appear in the Football League at the age of 15 years and 45 days.
Jon Stead set Ipswich on their way with a 20th minute opener before Owen Garvan and Ivan Campo scored within three second-half minutes.
The Tykes looked threatening early on against a nervy Ipswich side, as Diego Leon picked up a loose ball from Alex Bruce after nine minutes but had his 18-yard shot well saved and tipped round the post by Richard Wright.
Dennis Souza then headed straight at Wright from close range from the resulting corner.
The Tykes should have gone ahead after 14 minutes but Iain Hume hit his shot straight at Wright with only the goalkeeper to beat after being played in well by Jon Macken.
But it was the home side who broke the deadlock against the run of play after 20 minutes when Stead picked up goalkeeper Heinz Muller made a mistake with his clearance gifting Stead as chance to race in, and place a shot into the bottom corner from 15 yards.
Muller made amended on 30 minutes when he saved brilliantly from Alan Quinn, who was played in by a clever back-heel from Pablo Counago.
Soon after, Ipswich midfielder Campo had a dipping 20-yard free-kick tipped over by the German.
Souza went very close to the equaliser for Barnsley in first-half stoppage-time but his header from a Leon corner was saved by Wright.
Ipswich started the second half the more positive and Stead chipped over from 25 yards after 48 minutes.
Barnsley FC looked still very dangerous on the break. With Jon Macken testing Wright following a good turn on the edge of the box and midfielder Anderson De Silva stabbed an effort wide after being found by Jamal Campbell-Ryce.
Ipswich hit back and doubled their lead after 66 minutes through Irish midfielder Garvan, who broke from his own half, collected a return ball from Counago and curled in an effort from just inside the area.
Old Spanish campaigner Ivan Campo opened his account for Ipswich three minutes later following yet another mistake by Muller, alloweing the Spaniard's 30-yard effort to squeeze past his body.
Noble-Lazarus looked lively when he came on and managed to win a corner with one of his few touches but the reds come home empty-handed again.
With a big chance at points at home to the equally struggling South Yorkshire neighbours Doncaster Rovers. From our perspective we feel that if we get the upper hand and the ball drops for the front line, then we are going to hammer a team, lets it starts against Donny Rovers on Saturday, and help the reds turn the corner.
