Reds Extend Unbeaten Run

Reds Extend Unbeaten Run

Barnsley's draw against Scunthorpe United on Wednesday, however disappointing, has in fact extended the Reds unbeaten run in the league to five games.

The last time this happened in a full season was October 2007 when the Reds went seven games undefeated in the league, with wins over Scunthorpe United, Southampton and Bristol City and draws against Burnley, Charlton Athletic, Cardiff City and Stoke City.

The Reds were favourites to pick up all three points against the Iron but were stunned by a swift equaliser through ex-Red Paul Hayes, after Hugo Colace had given them a second half lead.

The result leaves Barnsley in 15th place with a game in hand and within touchin distance of the top half of the table.

However, tomorrow 7000 geordies will converge on the North Stand to cheer on the biggest threat to the Reds' unbeaten run so far: Newcastle United.

The Magpies are beginning to run away with the Championship, having opened up a seven point gap between themselves and second placed WBA. They have won their last seven league games, scoring fourteen goals and picking up five clean sheets.

The Reds will certainly have to be at their best to get anything from the game tomorrow and definitely must improve on Wednesday night's poor showing.
