MATCH PREVIEW | BARNSLEY vs CARDIFF CITY

3 April 2017


Cardiff City travel to Yorkshire to take on Barnsley in their second Sky Bet Championship away fixture in four days.

THE OPPOSITION


Barnsley, managed by Paul Heckingbottom, have been on a difficult run of late and are without a win since a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa in mid February.

Since then, the Tykes have lost four and drawn three of their last seven games. They finished March with a 2-0 loss to Norwich City at Carrow Road but bounced back on Saturday with a battling performance at home to Play-Off-chasing Sheffield Wednesday.

Sam Winnall left Barnsley for Wednesday in January and is still the Tyke’s top scorer with eleven league goals. The striker put his new team ahead in the second half but the Owls were denied the three points by an injury time equaliser by defender Angus Macdonald to make it 1-1.

Despite losing Winnall in January, the Tykes bolstered their squad with the introduction of Ryan Hedges and Alex Mowatt on permanent deals from Swansea City and Leeds United respectively, as well as securing the loan signings of Matty James, Gethin Jones and Callum Elder.    

CLUB CONNECTIONS


Stephen McPhail turned out for both clubs during his career and recently returned to South Wales to play in Kevin McNaughton’s Benefit Match. The Irishman arrived at Barnsley from Leeds United in 2004 before leaving to join Cardiff in 2006, after helping the Tykes win promotion to the Championship.

Also playing in Superkev's Benefit Match was Michael Chopra, who scored seventeen goals when on loan at Oakwell from Newcastle in 2004/05.

Neil Warnock joined Barnsley from Aldershot in 1976 and played over fifty games for club in a two-year spell before moving to York City.

Other players to have represented both the Bluebirds and the Tykes include Danny Drinkwater, Tony Warner and Liam Lawrence.

MEMORABLE MEETING


The Bluebirds travelled to Oakwell on 24th November 2012, looking to sustain their promotion charge towards the Premier League.

Defender Ben Nugent, making his first start for the club, headed home a Peter Whittingham corner to give his side the lead just after the twenty-minute mark.

The hosts then took the game to City, squandering several decent chances before the interval. Moments after the restart, another deadly Whittingham delivery was headed in at the far post by Aron Gunnarsson to double City’s advantage.

Barnsley did pull a goal back through a composed finish from Jacob Mellis but, despite a late red card for defender Simon Lappin, City held on for the win that took them to the top of the Championship. The Bluebirds would not be dislodged from the summit of the league for the rest of the season as they went on to win the title in style.

Match Reports

REPORT: BARNSLEY 0-0 CARDIFF

4 April 2017

REPORT: BARNSLEY 0-0 CARDIFF CITY

The Bluebirds and the Tykes shared the points in South Yorkshire, resulting in our first goalless draw since early December.

Fresh from their last-minute Yorkshire derby draw with Sheffield Wednesday, the hosts started brightly at Oakwell with Saidy Janko winning an early corner which was cleared away by the Cardiff defence. However, the high tempo on show in the early stages of the match soon fizzled out, with most of the first-half contested with a cautious tone. With few major talking points at either end, the main chance of the first period also fell to the hosts, with Greg Halford doing well to divert Marley Watkins’ cross away from goal at the pivotal moment.

For the Bluebirds, the key incident of the opening half was an injury picked up by stopper Allan McGregor, who was replaced by Brian Murphy at half-time. The Irishman faced a fierce introduction, making a very smart double-save to deny Janko and Matty James in quick succession. The Tykes saw another effort well held by Murphy a few minutes later, with Adam Hammill’s strike bringing a good two-handed stop from the City keeper. Unfortunately for Neil Warnock’s men, all three substitutions were used up just after the hour mark, with Sol Bamba sadly departing the field on a stretcher following a clash with Tom Bradshaw.

In impressive current form, Kenneth Zohore looked to use power and pace to create an opening, although Tykes’ goalkeeper Adam Davies rushed out to steal the ball from the Danish forward. With thirteen minutes to go, Anthony Pilkington had the best Bluebirds opportunity of the evening, with a clever free-kick routine involving Craig Noone. The winger set the ball up to Pilkington, who fired just inches over the crossbar.

At the other end, a fantastic tackle from Bruno Ecuele Manga halted the progress of Welsh international Tom Bradshaw from inside the box. Minutes later, Gethin Jones went close from the edge of the box, with a left footed effort that whistled wide of the post. Another impressive challenge from Matthew Connolly followed several minutes later, as the hosts built up the pressure in the final few minutes. Watkins had another effort on goal following a neat one-two with Adam Armstrong, which brought another low save from Murphy.

However, despite efforts from Zohore and Noone which were comfortably held by Davies in the Barnsley goal, the five minutes of injury time ended without significant event, and the match finished goalless. City are next in action against Brentford on Saturday, with a 3pm kick off at Cardiff City Stadium.
