Barnsley 1 - Sheffield Utd 2

Barnsley hold their own in this stormy South Yorkshire derby, the tactical plan by Sheffield Utd in getting our most influential player sent off, made it suddenly a harder task for the Tykes. Ex Barnsley man Chris Morgan, gave another good wrestling demonstration, and got away with murder with some terrible off the ball incidents, and shouldn't have been on the pitch by half time.

James Beattie struck a brace as Sheffield United cheated Barnsley 2-1 in a fiery Yorkshire derby at Oakwell.

Striker Beattie netted in both halves to clinch the success after Ugo Ehiogu and Anderson De Silva were sent off for a clash in the first half.

The victory stretched United's unbeaten run in the league to five matches and halted Barnsley's current run of good form, while Tykes manager Simon Davey also getting a sending off following words with Andy D'Urso over the referee's handling of the penalty decision.

New loan signing from Preston Simon Whaley went straight into Barnsley's starting line-up for the injured Jon Macken (hamstring) and Bobby Hassell stepped up well for suspended captain Stephen Foster.

Brian Howard, on loan from Sheffield United with a view to a permanent move in January, was ineligible, while the Blades were unchanged from the side that beat Plymouth last week.

Barnsley were first to threaten after eight minutes of sparring when Martin Devaney testred the United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny at the end of a nice barnsley move.

Hassell's last-ditch header at the far post snuffed out the visitors' first chance before Kevin Blackwell's side broke the deadlock in the 20th minute.

Webber turned Dennis Souza inside out on the right side of the penalty area and crossed for Beattie to stab the ball home at the far post.

Beattie almost made it 2-0 moments later, but his left-footed drive was turned well away by Tykes goalkeeper Heinz Muller.

Devaney headed inches wide at the other end following Moore's long throw-in.

Ehiogu and De Silva were given their marching orders after a spiteful exchange ended with both players leaning in headfirst.

Barnsley went close to equalising through two rasping shots from Hugo Colace, but the visitors held on until the interval.

Rob Kozluk was denied an equaliser for Barnsley soon after the restart after a neat one-two with substitute Miguel Mostto, putting him in a one on one, but the on-rushing Kenny smothered his shot.

Kenny comfortably collected Devaney's header as Barnsley probed for an opening and home appeals for a penalty after Moore went down under Chris Morgan's 63rd-minute challenge were waved away by referee D'Urso.

Jamal Campbell-Ryce blazed over the crossbar for the hosts and then with little over 20 minutes left Tykes manager Simon Davey sent on big striker Kayode Odejayi for full-back Hassell.

Whaley let fly from 35 yards and was inches wide and Spring rifled over for the Blades as the game ebbed and flowed.

United midfielder Stephen Quinn tripped when poised to seal the points six yards from goal.

Moments later Barnsley defender Kozluk appeared to use his arm in the area and while referee D'Urso failed to spot it, he belatedly consulted his assistant and awarded the visitors a penalty.

Furious Tykes boss Davey was then sent to the stands, as Beattie dispatched, and within two minutes Barnsley hauled one back when Odejayi headed home Whaley's nice little chipped cross from six yards.

Barnsley poured forward in the closing stages to get at least the point we deserved, but the Blades still threatened on the counter-attack and held on to clinch their third away win of the season.

Unfortunately the reds couldnt keep an in form strike force up front, which ultimately left us struggling in front of goal, and the loss of andserson deprived of the genius in midfield.
