Sheffield Wednesday 0 Barnsley 1

Sheffield Wednesday 0 Barnsley 1

It`s been over sixty-three years since Barnsley completed a double over their South Yorkshire rivals, but Jamal Campbell-Ryce writes his name into Tykes folklore as his wonderful strike secured all three points over the Owls.

Backed by around four thousand reds fans, Barnsley were in search of their third league double of the season, as a new-look side were up against Brian Laws` men.

A negative start from the Owls saw Barnsley pressing and it took their first shot on target to find the back of the net.

A quick counter-attack in the thirty-eighth minute from the Reds saw Bogdanovic find Campbell-Ryce on the left. The Jamaican international wormed his way into the box and rifled a wicked shot into Grant's top corner.

The second half saw an expected onslaught from the home side. But a new-look Reds outfit defended stoutly to keep the Owls at bay.

Wednesday`s best chance saw Marcus Tudgay lift his effort over the advancing Heinz Muller only for Bobby Hassell to appear from nowhere and clear the danger.

Sheffield Wednesday: Grant, Hinds, Wood, Buxton, Spurr, Johnson (Small 71), O'Connor, Potter, Gray (Jeffers 62), Clarke (Boden 80), Tudgay.
Unused subs: O'Donnell, McAllister.

Barnsley: Muller, Van Homoet, Foster, Hassell, Moore, Colace, Anderson, Campbell-Ryce, Teymourian (Hammill 80), Mifsud, Bogdanovic (Macken 69).
Unused subs: Steele, Devaney, Souza.

Bit of a nail biter though! 2nd half reminded me of the FA cup tie against Chelsea - defending for our lives! All we need now is to demolish the blades, that would be as good as a double for me!

Yeah you're right and these games have a tendancy to be really tough, but I think we will be buzzing after that result, lets hope for a big scoreline and get that goal difference up, it could be important come may!
