Maybe this time, Barnsley can get rid of the blues at Oakwell this Bank Holiday Monday.

It's generally a very rare fixture, with only five games being played in the league at Oakwell in over twenty five years. In the history between the two sides, only two other games have occurred in this (The Championship) league / or the old second division.

The last time these sides met at Oakwell was in League One when a rampant Michael Chopra scored a hat-trick, accompanied by a strike from Chris Shuker, to give Barnsley the spoils in a 4-0 drubbing of Peterborough in front of a crowd of just over 8,500

Overall in the league, the record states:

Barnsley Wins (9) | Draws (2) | Peterborough United Wins (12)

Of course, Barnsley have had a miserable time of late. Unable to score in the last 270 minutes of football played at home or away. Perhaps this is the time to end that drought.

Peterborough currently sit bottom of the Championship, having only scored ten goals away from London Road all season. Hopefully, that kind of form will not be suddenly transformed.

Mark Robins' squad however is still thread-bare, with doubts over midfielder Emil Hallfredsson who was forced out of Saturday's goalless draw at Shefffield United with an ankle injury.

In addition, the Reds will be without suspended central defender Ryan Shotton, who sits out the second game of his two-match ban. Bogy will no doubt be missing (hamstring), Filipe Teixeira (abdominal strain) and defenders Bobby Hassell and Rob Kozluk were not available on Saturday and this game may be too early for either man.

Come On You Reds!
