Barnsley 3 - Burnley 2


The game was a rip roarer, it contrasted from over an hour of ecstacy to half hour of agony and torture, as (partly due to a couple of very uncharacteristic mistakes from Rob Kozluck) the visitors gained some momentum trying to pull back the 3 goal deficit built up by some very good dominant play by Barnsley FC.

Rob had a game of two halfs himself, he was his usual impressive, battling self in the first half. All the team was impressive up until the Burnley fight back, where we went a bit disjointed but ultimately held on for an impressive victory against one of the Championships better sides, in the freezing surroundings of a winter Oakwell.

Barnsley survived a late fightback from Burnley before running out 3-2 winners at Oakwell last night.

The super reds took a three-goal lead with good goals from Jon Macken, Simon Whaley, and Diego Leon.

Burnley came back strong in the last 30 mins through substitute Martin Paterson's two goals in nearly as many minutes, which made everyone in red panic for the last 15 mins, supporters not least.

Burnley pinned down the Barnsley goal in the closing stages, but we held on for all three points making Owen Coyle's men miss out on fourth place, and lifting the reds to 14th in the table.

It should have been four or five up for the reds. Barnsley should have taken the lead in the opening 10 minutes when Rob Kozluk delivered a huge throw-in into the Burnley box.

Tykes frontman Kayode Odejayi rose above two Burnley defenders and laid on a fine back header to Macken, only a fine save from goalkeeper Brian Jensen denied Macken the opener from 6 yards.

The Tykes took the lead in the 17th minute when Kozluk hit a lovely ball over the top of a static Clarets defence, they could do nothing but watch as Macken raced towards goal and after shaping to curl the ball into the far corner of Jensen's goal, smashed home at the near post.

Barnsley fc should have had a second goal when Odejayi out muscled Clark Carlisle.

With only the goalkeeper to beat Jensen produced another superb stop to keep the score 1-0 as the reds run riot with some excellent dominant play.

Whaley gave Barnsley a two-goal cushion in the 48th minute - but in dubious circumstances. Jamal Campbell-Ryce picked the ball up in midfield and ran at the Burnley defence, and his goalbound shot came off Simon Whaley and deflected past a helpless Jensen.

Despite the protests of several Burnley players who claimed Whaley was offside, the referee ruled the goal should stand.

The reds looked to be sailing to a good victory as Leon made it 3-0 in the 50th minute, as the ball fell nicely for Diego following a Campbell-Ryce corner which Burnleys defence allowed to roll across the edge of the box.

Leon smashed the ball towards goal and another deflection left Jensen wrong-footed again and unable to prevent the ball hitting the back of the net.

Paterson started the visitors' revival in the 68th minute when he slotted the ball under the advancing Muller, thanks to a ball from Robbie Blake.

It was 3-2 17 minutes from time when Patterson rounded off a mazy run with a neat finish, and giving Barnsley a prolonged passage of squeaky bum time.

Muller pushed a McCann thunderbolt over his crossbar and also denied Eagles what looked a certain goal late on, while substitute Kevin McDonald filed over, but the reds clung on to a deserved win against impressive opposition in the second half, but we did make Burnley look ordinary in the first half. A win at Nottingham Forest at the weekend, and the play-offs will loom excitingly on the horizon.
