It has been a mixed week for Barnsley and Gerhard Struber. Last Tuesday night, they got a good win when they beat Blackburn Rovers 2-0. In the second half, they took the lead through Connor Chaplin. Barnsley would benefit from Ben Brereton being sent off and would go on to win the game thanks to a goal from Jacob Brown. However, they were brought back down to earth after suffering a 4-0 defeat to Stoke City. Things went badly from the off with goals from Sam Vokes and Tyrese Campbell giving the Potters a 2-0 lead after just ten minutes. Another goal from Campbell and a late strike from Tom Ince condemned Barnsley to a big defeat.
