Was the performance on Bank Holiday Monday better?

Well it had goals in it; too many from an opposition that had only accrued ten away all season, but the drought for the Reds ended up front, with Hume's double.

Please keep it going lads. Especially for Jnr.

The last time these sides met at Oakwell was in August 2008, when just over 14,200 attended to witness Barnsley record a 2-0 victory over Derby County, courtesy of goals from Hume and Foster. I would certainly settle for that again.

Since our return to the Chamionship, victories and draws are tied between the two sides, but Barnsley edge the stats on seven goals scored against Derby's six.

Overall in the league, the record states:

Barnsley Wins (17) | Draws (10) | Derby County Wins (24)

Why not take a look at the home form table. It's not pretty reading from our perspective with us sittting in a lowly 20th position. I think we all know that we haven't been operating in a fortress this time out.

However, on away form, Derby County haven't fared well either, with just three victories away from Pride Park. The outcome on Saturday could swing either way.

Ryan Shotton should return to the start-up after serving his two-match ban. Whilst Martin Devaney may also keep his place in the starting line-up. Bogy and Teixeira may find that this fixture has arrived too soon, Monday's performance should do him no harm whatsoever.

Especially for Jnr. Come On You Reds!
