Of the two teams competing tomorrow at Oakwell, Doncaster Rovers hold the upper hand in the history books with 23 wins to Barnsley`s 21 and eighteen draws between them:

Overall

Barnsley: 21
Draw: 18
Doncaster Rovers: 23


At Oakwell

Played: 31

Draw: 8
Doncaster Rovers: 10

The fixture itself dates back to 1901 with the first meeting between the two teams ending in a 1-0 victory for the Reds at the Intake Ground.

The highest scoring game between the two teams was a 4-4 draw at Belle Vue in 1934. Doncaster Rovers last won at Oakwell in 2005 in the Football League Trophy, when they beat Barnsley 5-2, with two goals from Lewis Guy, one from Richard Offiong and both Antony Kay and Neil Austin putting through their own net.

The Reds biggest victory has been a three goal margin and has occurred four times, the most recent at Oakwell in 2008 when they came back from 1-0 down with 10 men to coast to a very satisfying 4-1 scoreline. Jamal Campbell-Ryce, Jon Macken and Iain Hume added to Stephen Foster`s second half equaliser.

Last 6 Meetings:

17.10.2009 Doncaster Rovers 0 Barnsley 1
28.10.2008 Doncaster Rovers 0 Barnsley 1
04.10.2008 Barnsley 4 Doncaster Rovers 1
11.02.2006 Doncaster Rovers 2 Barnsley 0
18.10.2005 Barnsley 2 Doncaster Rovers 5
24.09.2005 Barnsley 0 Doncaster Rovers 2

If you added up the goals from every Barnsley V Doncaster Rovers game in history the score would be Barnsley 87 - 91 Doncaster Rovers.
