A strong Barnsley team suffered a 3 – 0 defeat to conference side Halifax at the Shay.

The Barnsley team was Alnwick (Dibble 45), Patterson, Hassell (Knight 74), McNulty (Boland 70), Jones, O`Brien, Cywka (Joyce 70), Clark, Jennings (Sousa 45), Oates, Noble-Lazarus (Knight 70). Unused subs: Abbott, Shillito, Barton, Scott.

It is unlikely that any of the above will start on Saturday but the team put out should have comfortably dealt with Halifax.

However I also don`t read too much in to pre-season results and see this game as no more than vital fitness ahead of a tough Championship campaign.
