Barnsley Away Awaits Winners of Town-Barrow Replay
Monday, 6th Dec 2021 19:15

A third-round tie away against Championship Barnsley awaits the winners of next week's Town-Barrow FA Cup second round replay at Holker Street.

The Blues and Bluebirds drew 0-0 at Portman Road on Saturday and meet again next Wednesday.

If Town defeat Barrow, the third round tie, which will be played over the weekend of January 8th, will see forward Conor Chaplin face the club from whom he joined the Blues in the summer.

The Blues have played Barnsley, who are currently second-bottom of the Championship, once before in the FA Cup, in the fourth round in 1990 when the Tykes won 2-0 at Oakwell.

The teams last met in 2017/18 when Town did the double over the South Yorkshiremen, 2-1 away and 1-0 at home.

Last season an away tie against Barnsley would have been a very tough ask but this season, they are struggling so if we are firing on all cylinders by then it’s winnable.

Can hardly contain my excitement! I watched the draw and it was looking like we might get Arsenal, West Ham or Norwich. Although perhaps it was a blessing in disguise we didn't get any of those! But first and foremost, we shouldn't overlook the mighty Barrow as that's a potential banana skin on live TV! Nothing can be taken for granted with Ipswich in the FA Cup now!

the cup has our name on it , lol. Midas we really could do without any of that trio . And yes another trial by TV awaits us ,shudder the thought unless someone can motivate and organise the team .

Another underwhelming draw...but we're on national TV for the replay so won't be holding my breath about us going to Oakwell.

The 1990 match was my first away trip.

Urgh Barnsley.
I hoped for better!
That's providing we get there mind you.

Better to bow out gracefully to Barnsley than get walloped 8-0 by Liverpool or Man City.

The 1990 match was awful- open terrace, raining, 2-0 down after 30, Brian Gayle and John wark looking at each other as they failed to pick up.
Only Oldham away was worse in that era
Barrows open terrace and another non performance in the cup might match it

Got to get past Barrow before we think about anything.

MMT it seems like over 30 years since that one, but 10 years later at Wembley like only yesterday. How we’ve had to hang on,,

Barnsley, only 13 places above us. Then again, Barrow are 34 below us and we can't beat them.

Brazil1982…. Was that a midweek game or the Saturday game? I might have been at that as well.
