Barnsley and Newcastle United have a long mutual history in football, first meeting in the F.A. Cup Final at Crystal Palace in 1910. The final score was 1-1, with a certain Harry Tufnell`s first half goal being cancelled out by Newcastle`s John Rutherford just 7 minutes from time to earn a replay. Newcastle won the cup at the second attempt with a 2-0 win at Goodison Park but Tufnell and his men tasted glory of course two years later.

The highest scoring games between the two teams have all come at Newcastle, with victories for the Magpies, two 4-2`s and a 6-0. Barnsley last won at Newcastle in 1982: a 2-1 victory in the league. Barnsley`s biggest victory over the Magpies has occurred three times, all 3-0 wins at Oakwell spanning 54 years.
