Barnsley anhialated Norwich in the first twenty minutes of this Championship encounter.

Amongst their numerous goal attempts, including an audacious effort by Diego Leon to lob the Norwich keeper from just inside the oppositions half, Barnsley were awarded a Penalty. Macken failed to convert.

The first half belonged to the Reds. Their passing was sweet and their movement had pace and an edge that has so far been missing this term. This was certainly their best attempt to put the opposition to the sword with Jamal Campbell-Ryce cutting through the Norwich midfield and defence at will. There was no end result, they simply failed to capitalise.

After the break, their zest had disappeared. The game had slowed down dramatically and Norwich were comfortable. At times, both teams were pedestrian in their adventure. Today it was unlikely that the Reds would concede a goal and perhaps that is something positive to take out of the game.

If the Oakwell crowd had suddenly forgotten all about Brian Howard, they could easily have been forgiven. On today's display, the Reds have bags of creativity in the like's of Leon and Campbell-Ryce. But, by full-time and after reflection, most fans will be wondering that without Howard in the team, who else is going to score?
