Yorkshire Pride Shared

Reuben Noble-Lazarus

Yorkshire pride was shared as Barnsley and Sheffield United’s youngsters played out a competitive draw at Grove Street in blustery conditions.

The gusting wind made for some interesting moments from throw-in and free kicks but it was Barnsley who were the first to adapt by taking control of the opening stages.

Their early dominance was rewarded when Reuben Noble-Lazarus (pictured) opened the scoring for the Reds on ten minutes with a swerving free kick from 20-yards that lodged in the bottom corner of the United goal.

As the half drew on, slowly but surely United managed to get the measure of the conditions and their opponents and following a spell of sustained pressure, equalised as half time beckoned.

A foul from a corner resulted in United captain Kingsley Williams dispatching a spot kick past Jevan Hodgson draw the sides level at the interval.

Chances were few and far between in the second period with conditions continuing to take a toll on the quality of football.

Barnsley’s Noble-Lazarus and Briscoe could and should have made more of opportunities created by Fearnehough’s passes while United will rue a Williams miss in the final five minutes which should have won the game for the Blades.

In a high tempo game that was dominated by the conditions a draw was ultimately a satisfactory outcome for both sides on the day.

Barnsley: Hodgson, Reffin, Carlisle, Branson, Teiman, Fearnehough, Taylor (clarke), Crapper, Bennett, Noble-Lazarus, Hibbert.

Sheffield United: Andrew, O’Kane, Pomares (Roe), Williams, Darlow, Maguire (James), Pennycooke-Morgan, Murray, Slew, Gregory, Lammy.
