The fixture itself dates back to 1906 with the first meeting between the two teams ending in a 1-0 victory for Forest at Oakwell. Barnsley and Forest didn`t meet at all between 1957 and 1993 but have met more frequently since Forest were relegated from the Premier League.

The highest scoring game between the two teams was a 7-1 thumping for the Reds by Forest in 1957. Forest last won at Oakwell in October 2000, in a seven goal thriller. Forest had led 3-0 but the Reds pulled two goals back through Neil Shipperley. Robbie Blake doubled Forest`s lead before Bruce Dyer made it 4-3.

The Reds biggest victory came back in 1914 at Oakwell when they plundered 5 goals without reply.
