Barnsley were held to a bore-draw by Charlton at Oakwell this afternoon.
The same team that completed the double over Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night, lined up against Phil Parkinson`s basement side.
It was, perhaps, the most boring game of football you will see all season, with chances few and far between.
Barnsley never tested Rob Elliott, the Addicks` 'keeper, until the seventy-fifth minute when substitute Jon Macken was introduced.
Mark Hudson had the best chance for the visitors coming in the thirty-ninth minute. The Charlton skipper did well to keep his volley down but couldn`t beat Muller who clutched onto the ball rather comfortably.
Dickson saw his effort blocked well by Hassell before the away side had another effort cleared off the line by Darren Moore.
Substitute Jon Macken saw his first chance thwarted by Elliott, Hammill did well to find the former Preston man free in the box with a wicked cross.
Hammill was teasing Murty on the left and did well to turn onto his right foot and fire a wicked drive at goal. Elliott parmed the Liverpool man`s effort away and Andranik couldn`t turn the rebound into the gaping net.
Oh well, at least none of you have to write a 400 word live report on a game you have no idea about on your day off tomorrow!
QPR next Saturday, get down to Oakwell and get behind the lads.
Vital Barnsley`s man of the match:
Nobody shone from either side as everyone around Oakwell was pleased to hear the final whistle. Bobby Hassell, as ever played very well indeed. However, if it wasn`t for Heinz Muller between the sticks, the Reds might have come away from the match with nothing to show for it. So Vital Barnsley`s man of the match goes to the big German, despite him taking his time at the end with his goal kick for some bizarre reason!
