'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Reds Bottle It

Both sets of fans were voicing their support as the wind swept across Oakwell.
A shot was scuffed wide by Bell from 20 yards after Kozluk got tangled with Nyatanga.

McAuley intercepted a great through pass from Diego Leon to Nardiello when it seemed the Welshman was through on goal 8 minutes in.

Stearman whipped a cross through the reds box as Barnsley`s defence failed to clear their lines.

Steve Howard seemed to handle the ball before having his 20 yard shot deflect out for a corner on 10 minutes.

Barnsley were working well on the right wing with Devaney and Howard but the ball was carelessly run out for a goal kick.

Macken nearly caught our Kisnorbo 15 minutes in as the Foxe`s captain danced around his own box with the ball.

Another cross was flashed across the red`s box with Steve Howard close by, the reds immediately sprung a counter attack with Danny Nardiello firing high over from 25 yards.

City were showing off some neat passing in the middle of the park as Kozluk gave away the ball.

Hume should have put the foxes in front when he was clean through on Steele but the
Canadian couldn`t finish.


Kozluk found himself in Halsey`s notebook after a ferocious challenge on Lee Hendrie.

Diego Leon wormed his way through the Leicester defence before firing wide of Henderson`s goal.

Rob Kozluk fired wide of the Leicester goal from the edge of the box after Leon cleverly fed in the left back.

Martin Devaney rattled the Foxe`s post just minutes before half time with a splendid 25 yard strike.

Barry Hayles came on to replace Lee Hendrie to bolster the Foxe`s attack.

Both sides were desperate to get into the dressing rooms in order to forget a rather dour first half.

Second Half

The reds should have been in front straight from the second half whistle as a Stephen foster cross wasn`t properly cleared, the ball fell to Diego Leon 4 yards from goal but the Spaniard fired at the outside of the right angle.

The reds fans were cheering their team on in hope their side would break the deadlock.

Nardiello forced a corner after a great turn in the box five minutes in.

Bary Hayles shot wide after Dennis Souza failed to clear a great run by Bell.

Nardiello wasted a great opportunity to set up a reds goal as the striker did brilliantly to make his way into the Leicester box but blasted over the bar.

Barry Hayles forced a corner on the 55th minute after doing well to keep the ball in play.

Both sides were battling in the middle of the park to try and grab the game by the scruff of the neck.

Brian Howard dragged a 20 yard shot wide after shaking off Matt Oakley.

Macken forced a corner after a neat feed from Nardiello on the hour mark. Leon`s resulting corner met the head of Foster who then had his header deflected wide.

Luke Steele got very lucky as he failed to punch clear a free kick, luckily Kisnobro fired over though it may have taken a minor deflection.


Nardiello made way for Kayode Odejayi with 20 minutes left on the watch.
Odejayi immediately showed his power and pace as he gained 20 yards on Jamie Clapham to force his way into the box, the Nigerian found Devaney who curled a left foot shot just wide of the top corner.

Leicester then somehow grabbed the lead as Nyatanga lost out to Barry Hayles, Ian Hume squeezed in the loose ball from 2 yards with 18 minutes left to play.

Mark Halsey waved away what seemed a stone wall penalty as Odejayi was wrestled to the ground in the Leicester box.

Campbell-Ryce replaced Martin Devaney with just over ten minutes to play.

N`gotty replaced goal scorer, Ian Hume in the 83rd minute.

Davey brought Michael Coulson on for Bobby Hassell in search of an equaliser.

Coulson dragged a shot wide after a scramble in the city box

Diego Leon failed to get his free kick up and over the wall from 22 yards just before 4 minutes of added time were added.

DJ Campbell was city`s final substitute to replaced David Bell.

How Barnsley threw away yet another home game is beyond belief, especially after the two performances on the road at Watford and Preston. Let`s just hope the tykes will swing back into form when Charlton are the visitors next week.
