Match Preview: Barnsley (A)

All Set For Final Away Game of the Season

26 April 2019

Blackpool's penultimate match of the season takes place tomorrow, with The Seasiders coming up against promotion-chasing Barnsley.

Bouyed by a last-gasp victory over Fleetwood Town on Monday, the team head out on the road unbeaten in their last three away fixtures. 

The hosts, meanwhile, sit second in Sky Bet League One after winning three games on the spin. The Tykes are also unbeaten in the league at Oakwell this season. 

Team News: 

Blackpool will make a check on the availability of Matty Virtue, who was forced off with a gash to his leg against Fleetwood on Monday. Mark Howard, Ollie Turton and Max Clayton are definitely out. 

It's virtually a fully fit squad for Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel to choose from, with only long-term absentee Kenny Dougall missing. Striker Kieffer Moore, on 18 goals for the campaign, is pushing for a start after recently recovering from injury. 

The Referee: 

John Busby will oversee proceedings at Oakwell, having last refereed the club at Charlton in December 2017. 

The official has taken charge of 40 matches to date this season, handing out 95 yellow cards and five red ones. 

Tickets: 

Advance tickets for this match have now gone off-sale, however supporters can still purchase tickets on the day. 

A £2 increase now applies to the previously advertised prices, meaning that tickets are now priced as follows: 

- £25 for Adults
- £18 for Seniors (65 and Over)
- £18 for 19-21-year-olds
- £12 for 12-18-year-olds

*Under-12 tickets must be purchased with an adult or senior. 

Please note: 12-18 and under-12 tickets must be purchased from the Barnsley ticket office in good time prior to kick-off. Supporters can pay for adult, senior and 19-21 admission (cash only) on the turnstiles.  

Important notice from Barnsley: 

Specially trained ‘sniffer dogs’ will be used at Oakwell on Saturday ahead of the Sky Bet League One Clash with Blackpool FC at Oakwell.

The dogs will be searching for all pyrotechnics that anyone may attempt to bring into the ground. The EFL is re-launching its commitment to tackle the use of pyrotechnics, which includes smoke bombs, flares and fireworks within EFL football grounds.  This was initially launched in November 2017 that saw all 72 Clubs sign up to a new Club Charter on Pyrotechnics.

Since the Charter was signed EFL Clubs have been taking strong and decisive action against any fans found attempting to bring a banned item into a ground, or those who discharge pyrotechnics.

Host Fight Back To Beat Seasiders

27 April 2019

Barnsley came back from behind to beat Blackpool 2-1 at Oakwell and retain their place in the automatic Sky Bet League One promotion spots.

Goals from Cauley Woodrow and Liam Lindsay, either side of half-time, cancelled out Harry Pritchard’s sixth of the season, which had earlier given Pool the lead.  

Liam Feeney struck the post with minutes remaining as The Seasiders looked to battle back, yet The Tykes saw the result out.

Midfielder Matty Virtue missed the game due to injury, resulting in a start for Harry Pritchard, while Antony Evans started ahead of Chris Long. There was also a welcome return for Jimmy Ryan as one of the seven substitutes.

After a quiet opening 15 minutes to the game, Blackpool took the lead. It was Pritchard who found the net, latching on to a lay-off from Armand Gnanduillet before seeing his strike find the bottom corner, via a deflection.

Barnsley looked to respond immediately, with Mamadou Thiam heading over from eight-yards out and a crucial intervention from Ben Heneghan required to block off a stinging shot from Mike Bahre.

It was vital that The Seasiders retained their shape and continued to frustrate the hosts, who were dominating possession. Cameron McGeehan opted to try his luck from 25-yards out and just flashed his effort past the far post.

The pressure kept on coming from Barnsley and it took an important save from Chris Mafoumbi to prevent Thiam from slotting in a leveller.

A minute later, The Tykes found the equaliser. Forward Cauley Woodrow had a go from distance and found the bottom corner.

McGeehan tried to quickly give Barnsley the lead, however Mafoumbi was equal to his strike prior to the interval.

Half-Time: Barnsley 1 Blackpool 1

Nathan Delfouneso was introduced for the second-half, taking the place of Nya Kirby down the left-hand side.

But it was still Barnsley who dictated the flow of the game, seeing Cauley Woodrow hit a deflected one over the bar and Bahre do likewise with his head.

It then took a fingertip save from Chris Mafoumbi to tip over a curling strike from the man he denied in the first-half, Mamadou Thiam.

Just prior to the hour mark, Barnsley did go in front. A near post run from Liam Lindsay was picked out by Cameron McGeehan, allowing the defender to convert from a corner.

Liam Feeney was instantly brought on as Blackpool searched a way back, though that didn’t prevent the waves of Barnsley attacks. Cauley Woodrow probably should have wrapped the game up from eight-yards out, however he dragged his strike wide.

Kieffer then had a glorious opportunity to score a third for the home side, yet he volleyed over from six-yards.

Liam Feeney almost salvaged a point for Blackpool late on, smashing an effort against the post at the back stick.

Full-Time: Barnsley 2 Blackpool 1
