Of the two teams competing tomorrow at Oakwell, Forest hold the upper hand in the history books with 26 wins to Barnsley`s 24 and eighteen draws between them:

Overall

Barnsley: 24
Draw: 18
Nottingham Forest: 26


At Oakwell

Played: 34
Barnsley: 17
Draw: 9
Nottingham Forest: 8

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.

Last 6 Meetings:

20.10.2009 Nottingham Forest 1 Barnsley 0
04.04.2009 Barnsley 1 Nottingham Forest 1
29.11.2008 Nottingham Forest 1 Barnsley 0
27.01.2006 Nottingham Forest 0 Barnsley 2
10.09.2005 Barnsley 2 Nottingham Forest 0
12.01.2002 Nottingham Forest 0 Barnsley 0

If you added up the goals from every Barnsley V Nottingham Forest game in history the score would be Barnsley 90 - 100 Nottingham Forest.
