PREVIEW: Barnsley

23 October 2018

Marcus gives us his preview ahead of Town's home game against Barnsley

Tonight, Shrewsbury Town play their second home game in a row as Barnsley visit Montgomery Waters Meadow. The Tykes currently occupy fifth place with 25 points from their 13 games so far this season. They've only lost twice this season and both of those defeats have been away from home with the most recent being a 2-0 defeat at Charlton on Saturday with the second most recent a 1-0 defeat at Coventry last month.

 Head to Head

We've played forty times against the Tykes but only in the league, we've never played in any of the cup competitions. Our most recent game was in 2015/16 in League One at the Meadow which we lost 3-0. Our most recent away victory over the Tykes was at home in the same season and we managed a 2-1 away win with goals from Mark Ellis and Jordan Clarke. In total, Barnsley have beaten us 19 times with Town winning 12 and 9 games ending in draws.

 Assorted Stats

The 15 minutes either side of half time are Barnsley's most productive with five goals scored before the break and three in the first fifteen minutes after the break.

The Tykes have won 57% of their away games against L1 average of 37%.

They have conceded an average of less than 1 goal per away game compared to the L1 average of 1.29.

Barnsley have scored three or more goals, five times in League One, this season.

They have failed to score in three games with the most recent being their game at Charlton at the weekend.

 Squad News

Dan Pinillos is suspended following his fifth yellow card of the season on Saturday.

Shaun Whalley will be out of action tonight after a calf injury forced him off on Saturday. The injury may see Abo Eisa play for the first time since late last season.


The matches are coming thick and fast and tonight is another game against one of the top teams in the division. Barnsley are one of League One's top goalscorers with only Peterborough scoring more times on the road. So it's going to be another difficult match and we'll need to work very hard to get something. However, in the first half against Sunderland we looked the better side to me and if we can perform like that and get the ball in the net a couple of times we stand a decent chance of getting something from the game.

Shrewsbury Town earned a 3-1 win against Barnsley this evening at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Greg Docherty, Ollie Norburn and Luke Waterfall all got themselves on the score sheet as Askey’s men won all three points.

Team News:

John Askey made four changes to his line-up to face Barnsley. Shaun Whalley was left out of the match day squad due to injury. Gilliead, Laurent and Sadler start on the bench. Introduced into the match-day 11 are Fejiri Okenabirhie, James Bolton, Ryan Haynes and Ollie Norburn.

First Half:

Town started the game in perfect fashion, taking the lead after just two minutes. Josh Emmanuel whipped in a ball, which was fumbled by the Tykes keeper and Greg Docherty was on hand to lash home the ball into the back of the net – giving Town the early lead.

The first 10 minutes was a tightly contested period. The Tykes battled hard to recover from the early goal, but Town’s defensive resolve remained firm despite Barnsley’s attacking pressure.

Anthony Grant was given a yellow card in the 17th minute for a firm challenge on Barnsley’s Kenny Dougall.

Town had a good opportunity to double the lead mid-way through the half. A clever counter-attacking move sparked by Docherty nearly resulted with Lee Angol going through on goal, but the Tykes defence recovered well to challenge Town’s striker off the ball.

Town’s second goal came moments after Angol’s chance. Ollie Norburn found himself on the edge of the box with a yard of space. The midfielder let off a low driven shot, which deflected of Alex Mowatt and the ball looped into the back of the net.

Town were beginning to dominate the ball and have a strong grip on possession. Askey’s men were troubling Barnsley’s defence at any given chance and looked a real danger going forward.

The half came to an end with Town comfortably leading the game by two goals. Docherty and Norburn were the pair who fired Town in front.

Second Half:

Joel Coleman was called into action early on in the half. A long-range shot came from nowhere, but the shot stopper leaped well to get two strong hands to the ball.

The visitors managed to pull a goal back just a few seconds after their earlier chance. A goalmouth scramble fell in the favour of Ethan Pinnock and the defender managed to poke home the ball the into the back of the net.

Town didn’t look troubled despite the Tykes registering a goal. The Town back line still looked solid and were doing well to absorb Barnsley’s pressure, as the visitors were pushing hard for an equaliser.

Town were not sitting back and were pushing for another goal - that goal came in the 69th minute through Luke Waterfall. The defender latched onto Docherty’s cross and smartly guided the ball into the corner of the goal with his head, which made the score 3-1.

Barnsley were still attacking Town at any given chance, but Askey’s men were remaining resolute and kept the Tykes forwards at bay. Waterfall was doing well to utilise his head defensively and saw off any long balls.

The game came to an end with Town the deserved winners. A good display from Askey’s men helped his team take the win against Barnsley.
