Barnsley 2 - Sheffield Weds 1

Hume and Campbell Ryce weigh in with goals as Barnsley take neighbours Sheffield Wednesday apart at Oakwell, giving a very satisfying victory to the Barnsley FC faithful. The game was started very strongly by the tykes as they showed their intention and determination, good early pressure leading to the early goal for the reds.

Looking at the state of Wednesday tonight, I can't see them getting back to the heady heights of 5 place again this season, and should be closer to the trap door than triumph come the end of the season.
The reds wanted... needed it more tonight at Oakwell and you could tell, the score line could have been ALOT worse for Sheffield Wednesday.

Two days after their success over bitter rivals Sheffield United at Hillsborough the Owls were thoroughly given a good plucking by the Tykes, easing the pressure on under-fire boss Simon Davey.

Hume's emphatic early finish set the Tykes on their way to our third league win of the season at Oakwell, and stretching our unbeaten run at home.

Formerly high-flying Owls showed their frustration in the 37th minute when Tony McMahon, on loan from Middlesbrough, was shown a straight red card for his bad challenge on Rob Kozluk. As Oakwell erupted following his marching orders.

Wednesday appeared down and out when Campbell-Ryce converted a penalty on the hour-mark, but Owls substitute Leon Clarke picked himself up after Dennis Souza's trip soon after to slam home the game's second penalty and haul his side back into it.

But Barnsley, with only one win in their last seven league matches, held on for a deserved win.

Davey made three changes to the side beaten 3-0 at Crystal Palace on Saturday, with Darren Moore, returning from suspension, Hugo Colace and Jon Macken all back in the starting line-up.

Francis Jeffers made his first start since January following a serious ankle injury and on-loan Stoke defender Lewis Buxton made his debut.

Owls captain Richard Wood and Sunday's match-winner Steve Watson were among those not included in Laws' starting XI and Wednesday were rocked in only the fourth minute.

Martin Devaney's low cross broke to Macken and the Barnsley FC forward flicked it across for Canadian international Iain Hume to power home an unstoppable volley.

In-form winger (and tonights deserved man of th match) Campbell-Ryce went close to celebrating his new three-year deal by doubling Barnsley's lead on 18 mins. when his 25-yard shot curled just wide.

Hume then headed Campbell-Ryce's cross just wide before the visitors were reduced to 10 men.

McMahon clattered into Kozluk on the touchline and after a melee of pushing and shoving by players from both sides - as Tykes boss Simon Davey showing his anger at the challenge - the Middlesbrough man was shown a straight red.

Watson replaced Jeffers at the interval but Wednesday struggled to contain Davey's players, whose confident passing game belied their lowly position in the table.

Wednesday's task was made harder still in the 60th minute when referee Phil Crossley adjudged Mark Beevers to have impeded Macken in the area following Hume's corner. Campbell-Ryce made no mistake with his penalty, sending it low to Grant's left.

Seven minutes later Crossley handed 10-man Wednesday a lifeline when Owls substitute Clarke was sent sprawling in the area under Souza's lunging tackle.

Brazilian defender Souza escaped with a booking, but Clarke made him pay further by ramming home the spot-kick high into the net. But the reds held on to a nice long awaited win against the old enemy. Well done the reds!
