birmingham v barnsley...

First Half: Barnsley Get Things Started…

Not altogether certain whether Barnsley were good, or whether Birmingham just made them look good. The Tykes controlled the first half for long periods, having a couple of strong penalty appeals turned down before scoring their first goal right on half-time. No one could claim that it wasn’t deserved…

Second half, everyone expected Birmingham to come out with a different mentality, but it never materialised. David Davis got himself sent off for the rashest of late challenges before Barnsley scored a second and a third in close succession in the closing stages. 3-0 didn’t flatter them, I just hope that Birmingham play as poorly at our place next week…

First Half: Barnsley Prepare to Take a Free Kick…

Anyway, with the benefit of hindsight, I’m rather glad that I didn’t buy a ticket in the Brian Clough Stand For Friday night’s match. Even as a very quiet non-drinker, I’m not sure how I would have coped with the refereeing debacle that unfolded…

Oh, and Nuneaton won 4-1…
