Date: Tuesday, November 12th, 1996

Venue: Oakwell, Barnsley

Result: Barnsley 3 Norwich City 1

Barnsley did their hopes of top flight football no harm with a convincing win over promotion rivals Norwich City with the Tykes` goals coming from Adie Moses, John Hendrie and Paul Wilkinson. Prior to the game, the bookies had fourth placed Barnsley at 28-1 for promotion, but with three goals in fifteen minutes in the second half, Barnsley closed the gap on Mike Walker`s Canaries, the team immediately above them in the table before eventually going on to win promotion to the Premier League, defying the odds so at 25/1 with Sky Bet, there's still hope yet!.

Teams:

Barnsley: Watson, Eaden, Moses, Appleby, De Zeeuw, Jones, Hendrie (Bosancic 78), Redfearn, Sheridan, Liddell, Wilkinson. Subs not used: Bullock, Marcelle.

Norwich City: Gunn, Sutch, Newman, Polston, Mills, Adams, Johnson (Bradshaw 82), Crook (Forbes 67), Milligan, Eadie, Fleck. Sub not used: Scott.
