The Reds took their first outing under Mark Robinson stewardship at Oakwell today.

First impressions were of a very capable oposition in the shape of Swansea City, the first quarter of an hour being ruled by the Swans sharp, one touch passing.

On 15 minutes, Hume was cut as a result of what appeared to be an elbow. The Ref failed to act.

Just four minutes later, Hume reappeared back on the turf 'mended'.

It would be fair to say the Ref appeared to be watching more events with 'white' eyes on more than just a few occasions with a potential call for a penalty when Gray went through on goal on 27 minutes. The worrying thing being that if the Europa League experiment is proven to work we may end up with three 'slack-oils' at the 'well rather than just one on a regular basis.

The atmosphere has been superb with the Red Army in vociferous support. None more so than the Ponty End.

Chances for both have been limited, but the Reds are putting in a shift today. Gray coming close on half time with a deflected effort from a drilled ball via Hammill.

Half Time: Barnsley 0 - 0 Swansea
