One Day In History - Barnsley: 1982-83

One Day In History - Barnsley: 1982-83
Teams: Barnsley v Queens Park Rangers

Date:Saturday 9th October, 1982

Competition: Football League Division 2

Ground: Oakwell

Rangers caused quite an upset on a dry and sunny day up in Yorkshire, as despite being down to 10 men the R`s rallied to win the game at a canter.

Terry Venables men were incensed after being reduced to ten men, with Simon Stainrod dismissed for two bookable offences, the first for dissent and he was ultimately given his marching orders by referee Raymond Chadwick after jumping into goalkeeper Barry Horn. Chadwick bided his time while Stainrod received treatment on his back before sending him on his way.

But ultimately it was the R`s who took advantage in a full blooded affair after current Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy lost the ball in midfield, R`s striker Clive Allen was on hand to take advantage giving Rangers a priceless goal.

Rangers defended stoutly as Terry Venables trademark offside trap was a joy to behold as Barnsley never threatened to test Rangers stopper Peter Hucker. Rangers took the three points in a toughly fought game in which Waddock, Gregory and Ian Stewart were singled out for praise.

Proud manager Venables stated:

"That must be our best performance since I joined Rangers two years ago. I was proud of them all - they were absolutely superb"

"It`s no mean feat to come to Barnsley and win after playing with ten men for an hour - they`re a bloody good team and they thrashed us last season (3-0 May 1982)"


Attendance: 13,270

Line-ups:
Barnsley: Horn, Law, Chambers, Glavin, Banks, McCarthy, Souter, Parker, Cunningham, Ronson, Birch (Barrowclough 65).

QPR: Hucker, Neill, Dawes, Waddock, Hazell, Fenwick, Micklewhite, Stewart, Allen (Wilkins 79), Stainrod, Gregory.
