Team news, tickets, travel and more...

Barnsley vs Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 16th February 2019, k.o. 3pm
Oakwell
Referee: Matthew Donohue

Wanderers visit Oakwell for the first time in 15 years, looking to avoid a repeat of their loss to league leaders Luton Town last Saturday when they meet second-placed Barnsley who are on an equally impressive run of form.

The Tykes' 1-0 loss at Adams Park in December was their last defeat in the league, and they've only dropped six points from the last 33 available, propelling them into the automatic promotion places.

They're a team that love to score goals, but they'll have to do without leading goalscorer Kieffer Moore who misses out through injury.

Wycombe of course were five games unbeaten prior to the trip to Kenilworth Road and will look to upset the odds by returning to form with a positive result at Oakwell, where they've drawn on both their previous visits.

Tickets
Advance sales ended on Friday lunchtime with around 300 snapped up by Chairboys fans; tickets are available on the day as follows:

Adult: £25
Senior (65+): £18
Under-21: £18

Pre-booked tickets can be collected from Oakwell Stadium from 1.30pm on the day of the game.

Team News
Barnsley's top scorer Kieffer Moore misses out after suffering a nasty head injury in their win at Barnsley, with Mike Bahre or Victor Adeboyejo likely to deputise. Defender Adam Jackson is available again after an absence.

Nathan Tyson was in the Wycombe side the last time they played at Oakwell in 2004 - with Matt Bloomfield an unused sub - and both could be involved again, with only Darius Charles and Yves Ma-Kalambay sidelined through injury. Alex Samuel should recover in time to make the squad after being taken off injured against Bradford a fortnight ago. Jason McCarthy returns to his former club.

Kit
Wanderers will be in their regular first-choice light and dark blue kit.

Man in the middle
It's Matthew Donohue's first season as an EFL official, and his first involvement in a Wanderers fixture.

He's shown 91 yellow and five red cards in 25 games so far.

POST CODE: S71 1ET

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the westbound M40 to Junction 10 and follow A43 towards Northampton to pick up northbound M1. Leave the M1 at Junction 37 and take the A628 towards Barnsley. Stay on this road (the ground is well signposted) and you will eventually see the ground on your right.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 171 (approx. journey time 2 hours 50 minutes)

Recommended area for car parking
Between Oakwell Stadium and the Barnsley Metrodome is a car park for visiting supporters, called the Queens Ground, which costs £5 for Cars (£20 for Coaches). This is just a couple of minutes’ walk from the stadium. SATNAV: S71 1AN

Using the train?
Please note that there is no longer Industrial Action planned which would have affected Northern Services on this day. Barnsley Interchange is roughly a ten-minute walk away from Oakwell Stadium. The station is served by trains running between Sheffield and Leeds. From the interchange turn left away from the town centre and head towards and then under the bridge that the dual-carriageway runs over. Once under the bridge, cross the road carefully, then turn left up the slip road and then take the first road on the right and head towards the Metrodome leisure complex at the top of the hill. Oakwell is now clearly visible.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 23,287 (all seated). The away supporters’ section of Oakwell is located in the North Stand. This is clearly signposted and is sponsored by club partner, Palmer Construction. This stand was previously an open terrace but is now a single tier, covered stand, opened in 1999. The facilities and view of the playing action are generally good. The concourse is of a fair size and the acoustics of the stand are pretty good.

Spare time on your hands?
The Metrodome is a designated ‘away’ supporters’ venue, serving food and drink right up to kick off, and is a mere five-minute walk away from Oakwell. Another option is “The Dove Inn” on Doncaster Road. This is only a five-minute walk away down Oakwell Lane and usually has a mixture of home and away fans. The “Barnsley East Dene Working Men’s Club” on Doncaster Road is usually happy to admit visiting supporters for a small donation. You can also leave your car there (charge made). This club is about a ten-minute walk away. Finally, the “Harbour Hills Working Men’s Club” on Vernon Street also usually admits visiting supporters.

Match Reports

Report: Barnsley 2-1 Wycombe

Blues fall just short at Oakwell.

16 February 2019

Wanderers came away empty-handed from their first visit to Barnsley in 15 years, in a game of three goals, two penalties and a red card for Adam El-Abd.

Cauley Woodrow scored twice for the hosts, firstly from the spot after a foul by Luke Bolton, and then from Jacob Brown's assist after the visitors lost Bolton to injury after a lengthy delay for treatment.

El-Abd was sent off in stoppage time following an altercation under provocation with Cameron McGeehan, before Joe Jacobson netted a consolation from 12 yards after Scott Kashket was tripped.

Gareth Ainsworth made three changes to the side that lost 3-0 at Luton seven days earlier, bringing a more youthful look to the attack with Alex Samuel, Luke Bolton and Nick Freeman replacing Nathan Tyson, Matt Bloomfield and Adebayo Akinfenwa.

Wanderers enjoyed an assured start, mostly down the right-hand side with former Tyke Jason McCarthy linking up neatly with Bolton, with the latter winning an early corner that nearly curled straight in, only for the home keeper Adam Davies to make a goal-line intervention.

Then the pair combined again, taking advantage of a lethargic start from the Tykes’ backline, to lay on a chance for Freeman, but his effort from 12 yards following Bolton’s cut-back was blocked to safety.

Daniel Pinillos saw a shot deflect wide with the hosts’ first effort on 11 minutes, but after Wanderers failed to clear, Mike Bahre fell as he and Bolton contested the ball in the area and referee Matthew Donohue pointed to the spot, giving Cauley Woodrow the opportunity to break the deadlock as he rolled it into the corner from 12 yards.

It came as a hammer blow for the Blues after more than matching their second-placed hosts from kick-off, but Barnsley gradually began to find their rhythm, almost doubling their lead when Dani Pinillos let fly from distance and his deflected shot needed a superb save from Ryan Allsop to prevent it from nestling in the top corner.

Jacob Brown drew a comfortable save from Allsop from 20 yards, before Freeman was presented with a golden chance to level, meeting McCarthy’s low cross with a first-time shot which was kept out by the legs of Davies.

Then Wanderers were indebted to Allsop for a vital save just before the break, rushing out to block Alex Mowatt’s chance with his legs as the midfielder met Woodrow’s clever through-ball inside the area.

It remained 1-0 at the interval, but the Blues battled well at the start of the second period, with Alex Samuel having the ball whipped away from under his nose as he prepared to turn it home from close range.

Then Luke Bolton sidefooted straight at Davies after a clever corner routine resulted in the ball being laid into his path, with the home fans beginning to grow restless as their side’s lack of ball retention.

But then came a moment of real concern when Bolton went down motionless after contesting the ball by the corner flag, seemingly caught by an innocent arm in the challenge, and requiring lengthy treatment on the pitch. Eventually he was able to walk off, aided by the medical staff, with Nathan Tyson taking his place.

After the restart, Allsop parried away Cameron McGeehan’s long-range drive, before the hosts swapped Mamadou Thiam with Ryan Hedges.

And the stoppage for the injury had come just at the right time for Barnsley, who were able to regroup and come back stronger after being on the back foot, doubling their lead all too simply when a through-ball carved open the backline and Jacob Brown crossed low for Woodrow to crash the ball into the roof of the net.

Wycombe needed a change, and it came – a double one in fact – with Adebayo Akinfenwa and Scott Kashket replacing Freeman and Cowan-Hall.

McGeehan flashed a shot wide from 25 yards and Brown headed wide as the visitors found themselves on the wrong end of some questionable decisions from the first-year EFL referee, while Woodrow was denied a hat-trick on 78 minutes by another Allsop save, before Liam Lindsay headed the corner over the bar.

Tyson was booked for an alleged foul on Dimitri Cavare, and Jombati followed soon after for a more certain foul on Woodrow, before Barnsley brought off Mike Bahre as Victor Adeboyejo took his place.

Wanderers could have had a goal back when Tyson lashed an effort too close to Davies from Akinfenwa’s flick, and then the Tykes made their final change with Alex Mowatt departing and Kenny Dougall coming on.

There were 10 added minutes due to the stoppage for Bolton’s injury, in which Jason McCarthy was booked for a crunching tackle which was dwarfed in comparison by McGeehan’s moments later, also earning a yellow. But then as McGeehan confronted Gape by going face-to-face with the midfielder, he was restrained by Adam El-Abd who then saw a straight red card after the referee took advice from the fourth official.

Jacobson was booked for a foul moments later before referee Donohue spotted a trip on Kashket in the area, enabling Jacobson to score from the spot deep into stoppage time.

But there was no time for the Blues to find a second, ultimately leaving Oakwell defeated after a curious battle with plenty of talking points, but won by the in-form Reds.
