Barnsley have the chance to make it three consecutive clean sheets in the league on Saturday when they (weather permitting) travel to the Keepmoat Stadium to face local rivals Doncaster Rovers in the nPower Championship.

Two clean sheets at home in the league have helped the Reds pick up four points and extend their unbeaten run to four games. Luke Steele was barely troubled in the Barnsley goal on Saturday when the Reds were held to a 0-0 draw at Oakwell by a resolute Watford side but he did do what was needed when he was called into action.

A third clean sheet would certainly please the shotstopper and it would also be the first time the Reds have kept three consecutive clean sheets in the league since December 2007.

0-0 draws against Palace and Ipswich and a 1-0 win over Wolves three years ago was the last time the feat happened. I’d take another 0-0 at the Keepmoat on Saturday if I’m honest.
