    Time:90'
    • Barnsley
    • Sheffield United
    • - United have now failed to win in eight league games, but end a run of four league defeats. Both teams are now on 18 points, with the Blades in 14th above the Tykes: Championship table
    • 90+5' The match is over - 2-2 the final score.
    • 90+4' Colace has space and winds up... a poor effort, wide of the mark. You can see why he's a defensive midfielder with that.
    • 90+3' Hume chasing down and forcing a throw-in from Walker. Hammill and Dickinson combine for the Reds, winning another... moments left on the clock.
    • 90+2' Moore flicks it on and Bunn makes the save with Anderson jumping into him. He lies still for a moment before abuse from the fans makes him get up quickly!
    • 90+1' Barnsley free-kick in the away half. This will go right into the heart of Bunn's penalty area...
    • 90' United waste a chance to get the ball into the danger area as four additional minutes are signalled by the fourth official.
    • 89' Long, desperate balls forward the order of the day now. United have a free-kick in their own half.
    • 88' It has been a nasty contest, plenty of what old pros call needle. Two minutes left in it.
    • 87' Doyle, who has had a quiet game, strikes from distance - wide of the far post.
    • 86' Shotton stamped on his back after he fell down inside his own box seeing the ball out - but instead of a red card for the home defender, Walker is booked for perceived playacting!
    • 85' Walker goes down and Shotton is there pressing... Walker rolls away! Was there contact?
    • 84' There is a stunned atmosphere inside Oakwell now. Can Barnsley take the lead a third time?
    • 83' HENDERSON TUCKS AWAY THE PENALTY! 2-2.
    • 82' It was not a penalty. Walker cut into the box and fell over under a non-existent challenge from Hammill.
    • 81' ANOTHER PENALTY TO THE BLADES!
    • 80' The final United change: striker Henri Camara on for wide man Treacy, who is also injured.
    • 79' The midfielder comes off to finish his treatment. He'll be back.
    • 78' Henderson leads with the elbow, injuring Anderson. Yellow card.
    • 77' Anderson with a poor cross but United cannot clear and Hammill tries again. He cannot get a cross in.
    • 76' Barnsley changes: On comes Hume to a hero's reception, along with Julian Gray. Bogdanovic and Macken come off.
    • 75' Macken got down the right side of the penalty area and crossed low for the Malta striker to sort of fall into it and chest it in.
    • 74' BARNSLEY TAKE THE LEAD! BOGDANOVIC!
    • 73' Hume preparing to come on, and he will be the home side's first change. It will be interesting to see the reaction from the crowd.
    • 72' More indecision in the middle of the park. Neither side getting it down and playing, although Barnsley have done so for most of this game.
    • 71' Macken tries to send a chipped through-ball towards Bogdanovic, who cannot get there ahead of Bunn.
    • 70' How are Liverpool getting on against Birmingham in the Premier League? Not well at present: Read about the latest
    • 69' A spell of head tennis as the players wind up for a last tilt at this match. Blackwell has only one change left to make.
    • 68' Moore and Evans chase a long ball back towards the Barnsley penalty area, and both go down... free-kick to the home side. They had hold of each other's shirts.
    • 67' The impressive Bogdanovic on the right almost tees up Macken again, winning a corner. Bunn punches clear, and claims a free-kick that never arrived.
    • 66' Hammill with a run and shot that Bunn gets down to comfortably.
    • 65' Kozluk got some of Evans too at the spot-kick award. The home players did not think it was a penalty.
    • 64' See how everyone else in the division got on at the weekend, and the fixtures to come: Championship fixtures and results
    • 63' Macken is alone to meet a free-kick in front of goal, and twists to head well wide. Another bizarre finish from the former £5 million-pound man.
    • 62' The United fans giving it back to Barnsley now. Don't you just love derby matches?
    • 61' Steele, who had no chance with the kick, came out sharply to upend Evans as the ball ran away. It was the right decision.
    • 60' HENDERSON SMASHES IT UNDER THE CROSSBAR FOR 1-1!
    • 59' PENALTY TO SHEFFIELD UNITED!
    • 58' Bogdanovic rises to head past the post from Colace's cross.
    • 57' Another cross from Dickinson, deflected just past the post. Corner to the Tykes, whose fans are going wild.
    • 56' Macken misses a glorious chance! Dickinson crossed from the left and the striker directed it away rather from than towards goal. Barnsley looking for a second.
    • 55' Bogdanovic free on the right, looking for a lob... it is just under the crossbar but Bunn catches. There are cries of 'over the line', but it wasn't.
    • 54' United hit the post through Treacy! He cut in from the left touchline and banged it against the near-post upright. Moore blocks the rebound.
    • 53' The ball dropped to the former Everton playmaker inside the right corner of the box - and he swept it into the far side of the net! What a strike.
    • 52' GOAL FOR BARNSLEY! ANDERSON SMASHES IT INTO THE FAR TOP CORNER!
    • 51' Barnsley on the attack, with a pair of throw-ins...
    • 50' Henderson threatening at the other end, Barnsley at sixes and sevens... but get away with it.
    • 49' Bogdanovic spreads play from right to left, with Macken alone near the corner of the box... the flag is up but he lobs the ball into the far corner anyway. He was level.
    • 48' Kilgallon has suspected ankle ligament damage.
    • 47' Bogdanovic with an early run down the right and chip towards goal... Bunn makes the catch.
    • 46' The match back underway, United kicking towards their visiting fans on the left as we look at it.
    • - United change at half-time: Bennett has a suspected broken thumb and is replaced by fellow keeper Mark Bunn.
    • 45+5' A free-kick is awarded in the United box; when Bennett kicks it the whistle sounds. Somehow goalless at the break.
    • 45+4' Anderson caught in possession. Soon after Barnsley have a free-kick and will send the ball long, surely the final chance of the half...
    • 45+3' Barnsley pressing in the final third but unable to put a cross in.
    • 45+2' United change: Blackwell relents, bringing Derek Geary on for the centre-half.
    • 45+1' Barnsley have the attacking throw-ins now with four minutes to be added on.
    • 45' Kilgallon is furiously signalling to the bench that he cannot make it to half-time, while Blackwell wants to leave him on just in case he can recover.
    • 44' United send in a corner with the Barnsley fans still booing the decision, while bizarrely Kilgallon is back on the pitch despite barely being able to walk. The Reds survive...
    • 43' Kilgallon is hurt, limping on the sideline as Barnsley clear the United ball in from near the corner flag.
    • 42' Kilgallon falls awkwardly as he sends a high ball into the box under pressure from Shotton. Steele catches cleanly but the ref gives a free-kick - and books Shotton. That is harsh.
    • 41' Bogdanovic pushes Davies while chasing down in the away box. Free-kick to United.
    • 40' Another shot goes over for Barnsley. Fellow South Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday are also on 17 points, while the other team in the division from the county Doncaster are on 15.
    • 39' Hammill with space to take the ball on and shoot... well over the bar. The United supporters behind the goal cheer ironically.
    • 38' Another chance for the away side! Walker got down the right side of the penalty area and squared into the six-yard box, where Ryan Shotton almost missed the ball before scrambling to safety.
    • 37' Another throw-in from Walker, United keeping the ball from their hosts.
    • 36' The spell of Blades pressure continues as United waste a chance to put the ball in from a corner.
    • 35' The home team have had the more chances, but either side could be leading. The pace is yet to let up with 10 minutes to go till half-time. Barnsley team page
    • 34' Davies cannot win the header from the corner and Barnsley have a goal-kick.
    • 33' United on the attack, Evans inside the box... his looping deflected effort is almost nodded home by Henderson! Corner to United, although it looked like the striker got something on it...
    • 32' Barnsley revert to the long ball this time but the ball comes back. A passing move is then snuffed out by the Blades.
    • 31' Treacy heads the corner clear with the huge Moore lurking behind him.
    • 30' Anderson lays off to Kozluk, who dinks a cross back towards his team-mate... his volley is deflected behind for a corner.
    • 29' There is a break in play while the snapped corner flag is replaced, while Anderson gets away with it.
    • 28' More shenanigans as Anderson chases a ball to the corner shielded by Keith Treacy and seems to boot the fallen United midfielder in the back as he went down himself.
    • 27' Henderson furious after a free-kick is awarded to Barnsley on halfway.
    • 26' Davies is injured after challenging Macken prior to the cross.
    • 25' The ball drops to Barnsley midfielder Hugo Colace in the box after Anderson attacked Macken's hooked cross... he chests it down and Bennett parries away his volley! The keeper is a busy man.
    • 24' No cards issued after a set-to with 20 players or so.
    • 23' After what happened last season, that is the last thing the game needs... ref Mark Clattenburg diffuses the situation.
    • 22' Barnsley's Macken leads with the elbow and catches Andrew Davies, who reacts furiously, grabbing the striker.
    • 21' Henderson free in the box and heads wide! That should have been the opening goal. The United fans cannot believe he missed it.
    • 20' This match could go either way. Let us know what you think will happen and we'll post your views up at half-time. SUFC team page
    • 19' The ball breaks in the away box and Bogdanovic volleys to the far post, pushed way by Bennett! United clear the danger. What a save!
    • 18' Kevin Blackwell is under pressure as Blades boss, expected as he is to take them up this season. This could be a key game in his tenure.
    • 17' United coming back into this match, although the home team are playing the ball through midfield well.
    • 16' Richard Cresswell lays the ball to Evans, who strikes... just past the near post! He should have had a corner, but the ref signals a goal-kick to Barnsley.
    • 15' Mark Robins has done a sterling job at Oakwell since taking over - they had one point when he arrived in place of Simon Davey.
    • 14' There is a cracking atmosphere despite the game being on the telly. United striker Jamie Ward beaten in the air, his broken wrist bandaged up.
    • 13' Another one from Hammill, who has been in excellent form this season after helping the Tykes stay up in the last campaign... Brazilian Anderson de Silva wins the header and Bennett tips it around the post!
    • 12' Hammill on the left putting in crosses to threaten Ian Bennett's goal.
    • 11' It has been an electric start in freezing conditions. Both teams going at it hammer and tongs.
    • 10' Ched Evans looking to bring the ball into the Barnsley box, but loses it and Kozluk clears.
    • 9' The corner comes in and the ball hits Walker on the head and ricochets off the away crossbar! Barnsley again so close to taking the lead!
    • 8' Malta striker Daniel Bogdanovic leads the counter and is through on goal on the left but a way out... he cuts in and his shot is blocked!
    • 7' Barnsley clear off the line! Veteran Darren Moore stooped to head away but could not get anything on it; he then redeemed himself by blocking the following shot from Darius Henderson.
    • 6' Kyle Walker, thought to be out of this game prior to kick-off, causing problems down the right in the colours of Sheff Utd.
    • 5' Luke Steele in the home goal drops the ball under pressure but reclaims at the second attempt.
    • 4' Former Liverpool youngster Adam Hammill with the ball on the corner of the United box, laying it off... the cross comes in and Macken gets a toe to it, the ball looping up and on to the top of the away net. The first effort.
    • 3' Rob Kozluk with a hurried clearance as United press. Fast and furious start.
    • 2' Barnsley striker Jon Macken leaps to challenge Matthew Kilgallon from a free-kick and United have the goal-kick.
    • 1' Then to a roar from fans at both ends, the game kicks off, Barnsley in red and white kicking from right to left, United in all black.
    • - The teams are out. We have a minute's silence for Remembrance Sunday.
    • - With the teams two of six on 17 points, three tonight would see the winner jump to within one spot of the top half of the Championship table.
    • - The Blades have more players missing, with Jordan Stewart (calf), Gary Naysmith, (knee), Richard Cresswell (ribs), Nick Montgomery (knee), Andrew Taylor (thigh) and Paddy Kenny (drugs ban) unavailable as well as Morgan.
    • - Barnsley are without their own skipper Stephen Foster, who is also suspended due to five yellow cards.
    • - The teams: Barnsley: Steele, Kozluk, Shotton, Moore, Dickinson, Anderson, Colace, Doyle, Hammill, Macken, Bogdanovic. Subs: Preece, Hume, Campbell-Ryce, Hassell, Hallfredsson, Thompson, A. Gray. United: Bennett, Killgallon, Henderson, Evans, Harper, Ward, Davies, Treacey, Quinn, Fortune, Walker. Subs: France, Cotterill, Williamson, Bunn, Little, Geary, Camara.
    • - The main talking point has been neutralised in many ways: following the drama of last season United skipper Chris Morgan is suspended tonight while Iain Hume, whose skull was fractured by the former Barnsley captain's elbow, is on the bench.
    • - Barnsley welcome Sheffield United to Oakwell for an explosive South Yorkshire derby.
