Barnsley are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week’s action.

The performances by Conor Hourihane and Sam Winnall in the three nil victory over Birmingham City at the weekend at St Andrew’s Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.

I think we’ll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why the duo was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.


‘Hourihane’s left foot proved to be the architect behind Birmingham City’s downfall, as the midfielder created all three goals in Barnsley’s comfortable win at St. Andrew’s. Marc Roberts headed home the Irishman’s free-kick in the first half, and two more set-piece deliveries helped Sam Winnall to a brace.’


‘Winnall headed two goals for Barnsley as they eased past 10-man Birmingham City on Matchday 19. The striker’s goals both came in the second half, sealing a fine 3-0 win and sending the Tykes up to 12th in the Sky Bet Championship standings.’

It’s always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to both for their recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.

Full Team:

Karl Darlow (Newcastle United), Andy Butler (Doncaster Rovers), Alex Pearce (Derby County), Ryan Fredericks (Fulham), Souleymane Doukara (Leeds United), Conor Hourihane (Barnsley), Alex Pritchard (Norwich City), Jacob Murphy (Norwich City), Sam Winnall (Barnsley), Otis Khan (Yeovil Town), Chris Martin (Fulham).

Manager – Darren Way (Yeovil Town).
