Match Previews

Match preview: Barnsley (A)

27 October 2023

Fleetwood Town will travel across the Pennines to the Oakwell on Saturday for their 3pm kick-off against Barnsley, and in this preview we will tell you all you need to know about game week 14 of our Sky Bet League One campaign.

Fixture: Barnsley FC V Fleetwood Town

Competition: Sky Bet League One

Date: Saturday 28 October 2023

Kick-off: 15:00pm (BST)

Venue: Oakwell Stadium, Grove Street, Barnsley, Yorkshire, S71 1ET



High-flying Barnsley are looking to continue their good form of being unbeaten in four games as the Yorkshire side have scored nine in those four games, only conceding one in the process. This positive start to the season sees the Tykes sit comfortably in third, breathing down the two sides in the automatic spots’ necks.

With the most positive goal difference in the division with 29 goals scored and 13 conceded, Barnsley are no strangers to finding the back of the net especially with Devante Cole already in double figures in the league so far with ten and leading the scoring charts – the ex Fleetwood man has scored 34% of the hosts’ goals this season.

With the average age of Saturday’s hosts this season coming in at a youthful 24 years and three months – the third youngest in the league - combined with the driving force that is Neill Collins at the helm of this squad – the Yorkshire side are optimistic that the position they currently sit in now in the Play-Off spots is where they aim to be or in-and-around come the end of the season.

The Tykes will look to go one better than last year’s attempt of a return to the Championship having missed out at the final hurdle in last year in the Play-Off Final at Wembley, with fellow Yorkshire men Sheffield Wednesday winning 1-0 with the last kick of the game.



With a name that’s etched into Luton Town’s history guiding them into promotion into the Premier League for the first time in their existence as a manager, current Luton head coach Rob Edwards has stepped out at Highbury for Fleetwood and also Oakwell for Barnsley in his playing days; a direct loan to the Cods from Barnsley at the back-end of his career for game time meant Edwards only played four games for Town.

Devante Cole: Cole – a product of Manchester City’s academy – must love wearing a Barnsley shirt as this is his second spell at the club, both of which rather successful - the first was a loan in 2014 with seven goals scored in 28 games and his second is in present day, seven stints with other sides later; Since Cole’s arrival on a permanent transfer from Motherwell in June 2021, Barnsley’s number 44 has 28 goals in 94 appearances, coincidentally the same amount of appearances Cole made in a Town shirt but with six less goals [22] back in 2016.

Rob Atkinson: In 2011, Atkinson joined Town from fellow Conference Premier [now the National League] side Grimsby where the defender helped the Cods win promotion into the football league for the first time in the club’s history. Atkinson wore the armband for Fleetwood on a few occasions during his 36 games for the club as his appearances are almost a half an half split with 17 in the national league and 18 in League Two and one in the EFL Trophy. The number 25 for the FY7 side started his career at Barnsley however didn’t cement a starting spot only managing eight appearances for the Tykes.



Following Town’s dramatic 2-1 win away at Reading last time out, Johnson is hoping his lads carry momentum into what is the second out of three ex-premier league sides the Cods will face this week with Blackpool coming up next week, but focus turns to Oakwell and we want you, the Cod Army there in full force and backing the lads.

with the fixture chosen as the Fleetwood Town’s Official Supporters Club’s chosen match for their annual game, the atmosphere is bound to be a good one in that away end and the journey from Lancashire.

Adults: £25

“A win is definitely what we are looking for and I think it is a possibility – if I was Barnsley I would be looking at us and making notes of the serious threats we have  and that we played well in the week – three games in a week is a  huge test for us and it’s also a test for me because I need to balance team selection, we can’t create a victim mentality based on a good win and bring an average performance on Saturday.

“We’re going to have to perform well if we want to get something, Barnsley have done well and it’s a club I know well, I know the ethos and what the club is built on, you have to try and break that spirit before you even go to a place like Barnsley - it’s definitely going to be a tough game but it’s a good game for us - it’s relatively local so hopefully the Fleetwood contingent will be travelling there in force.”

Match Reports

Report: Town held to a draw by high-flying Barnsley at Oakwell

28 October 2023

Fleetwood Town were held to a 2-2 draw against high-flyers Barnsley at Oakwell on Saturday afternoon after conceding right at the death.

A brilliant performance from Junior Quitirna saw the Cods go into the break a goal up after his opener early on and his free-kick from range not long after, but a goal two minutes from time by substitute Corey O’Keeffe meant the points would have to be shared on the day.

It was a lightning-quick start to the game as both sides managed to find the back of the net in the opening stages, with Lee Johnson’s Cods breaking the deadlock not long after the referee’s whistle.

Jack Marriott sprung the attack that found the opener as he looked to cross the ball into Quitirna inside the opposition’s box and, even though it took a deflection, the ball still found the man, who took it down well and calmly finished past Ben Killip between the Tykes’ sticks.

Disaster struck three minutes later as a deflected cross at the other end looked destined for Jay Lynch, but Cole snuck in first and won a penalty, which Town’s number 13 saved but the former Cod netted the equaliser with the follow-up.

This didn’t dishearten Fleetwood as they looked to put themselves back into the lead and Ryan Broom almost did so as he picked the ball up after Marriott was taken out in the middle of the park and struck an effort on goal, which had to be stopped by a diving Killip.

Barnsley then seemed to find their footing in the game as they created multiple chances from range through Nicky Cadden, John McAtee, and Barry Cotter but none of them troubled Town as all flew wide of the mark from their respective wings.

How about a moment of brilliance to take the pressure out of the situation? Quitirna stepped up to a free kick, which could have arguably seen Jordan Williams be sent off after his tackle on Marriott, and wrapped the ball into the top left corner, making it 2-1.

The hosts came close to bringing the score back to level terms with not long to go in the first half when Herbie Kane decided to try his luck from 20 yards, but his curled effort was only stopped by the woodwork, being the Cods’ saviour this time around.

Around the ground, there was a feeling of everyone against Fleetwood and that wasn’t helped by what seemed to be a stonewall penalty that should have been given to the Cods when Marriott was tackled inside the Barnsley box – nothing was given, and play carried on.

Barnsley were banking on their play down the left wing would bring them a good throughout the second half, as they managed to create gilt-edged chances from that side, but none seemed to break through the Town backline as they stayed stern in front of the home fans.

That was until the 88th minute when a ball over the top found substitute O’Keeffe at the back post who finished off the move with a diving header which went across Lynch and into the back of the net to level the score line right at the death.

Tykes XI: Killip (GK), Williams (C), Russell (Watters 70’), De Gevigney, Cadden (Dodgson 81’), Kane, Cotter (O’Keeffe 63’), McCart, Phillips (Benson 70’), Cole, McAtee (Jalo 81’).

Unused subs: Flavell (GK), Shepherd.

Town XI: Lynch (GK), Wiredu (Tshimanga 63’), Lawal, Vela (C), Broom, Marriott (Stockley 63’), Quitirna (Mayor 50’), Heneghan, Omochere (Montgomery 63’), Rooney (Robertson 80’), Earl.

Unused subs: McMullan (GK), Patterson.
