O'Grady Misses Penalty In Derby Stalemate

THE Reds missed the chance to climb out of the relegation zone on Saturday after dominating against Doncaster Rovers.

Barnsley controlled large parts of the South Yorkshire derby and were awarded a 19th-minute penalty after a clumsy challenge on Marcus Pedersen.

Top scorer Chris O'Grady then had his spot-kick saved by Ross Turnbull, leaving the Reds in the relegation zone after the 0-0 draw with 11 points from their 15 matches.

However, Barnsley kept their first clean sheet of the season having leaked 31 goals in their previous 14 matches.

"We definitely wanted three points today but we didn't work their keeper enough," said David Flitcroft.

"In the first half we should have come in three up and we had more chances after the break.

"It was something you don't see often, O'Grady missing a penalty."

Next up for the Reds is a trip to Millwall on November 23.

He always says we are improving, I think they need a good rollocking.
Donny looked like the worst team to come to Oakwell, but we waited for the last few mins to go at them. Cywka needed more than 5 mins, should have brought him on instead of Scotland and played a few attacking mids.

RNL & CYWKA (Then we can have a 5man team at least)

Good to see McCourt and Jim in the same starting lineup
