- First team faces make appearance in B Team friendly

Several members of Neil Warnock's First Team squad got important minutes under their belts in our latest B Team game of the season at Barnsley on Friday afternoon.

In the first five minutes of play, Barnsley pressed high and were presented with a double chance however Will Boyle and Mustapha Olagunju denied the Reds a successful breakthrough.

Barnsley’s forwards tried to gain the early advantage, but their efforts fell short as the shot went just wide of Jacob Chapman’s goal.

Although the Reds produced the better of the chances, they were no match for Town’s back line.

The Young Terriers were eager to grasp a hold of an advantage in the Yorkshire derby and having improved interplay in the midfield the B Team were presented with some excellent opportunities.

After a couple of shots were blocked by the keeper, the B Team kept pressing high with aims of taking control of the game and asserting their dominance on the pitch.

Their continuous fight proved a success as a goal from Donay O’Brien Brady in the 44th minute left the B Team 0-1 up at half time.

The Young Terriers came into the second half wanting to build on their advantage, with hopes of securing a win.

A great chance was given to Tyreece Simpson as he carried the ball into the box and shot from close range but unfortunately the ball clipped the crossbar and goes out for a goal kick.

In the 52nd minute Barnsley scored the equaliser, and it was all to play for as both sides fought vigorously for the advantage.

Although the B Team were strong in their defence, in the 83rd minute our hosts secured their victory with another goal.

An excellent late chance came for the B Team came as the returning Pat Jones carried the ball forward from the halfway line into the attacking area, taking a shot that went just wide of the net.

In the last five minutes of play the Young Terriers showed real effort in their attempt to make a breakthrough but they were unable to equalise the scoreline and the game ended 2-1 to our hosts.
