Middlesbrough v Barnsley - Preview

Middlesbrough forward Ashley Fletcher in contention to face Barnsley

Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock could have striker Ashley Fletcher available for his 1,500th game as a league manager against Barnsley on Saturday.

Fletcher missed last weekend’s 1-1 draw at QPR after limping out of Boro’s previous home game against Bournemouth, but is back in light training and could yet be involved.

However, defender Grant Hall will miss out after damaging a calf muscle at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Striker Chuba Akpom will hope for a home debut after giving Boro the lead last weekend in his first appearance for the club.

Barnsley boss Gerhard Struber is still searching for the right formula with his side yet to score a league goal in three outings to date this season.

Central defenders Mads Andersen and Michal Helik returned from suspension for last weekend’s 0-0 draw with Coventry, which secured the club’s first point of the campaign.

However Struber, who had set his team up in a 3-4-1-2 formation, withdrew Helik at the break to send on midfielder Dominik Frieser and switched to 4-3-3, although goals remained elusive.

Defender Ben Williams is a long-term absentee after suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage in pre-season.

    Middlesbrough 2 - 1 Barnsley - Match Report

    Neil Warnock celebrates 1,500th game in management with win over Barnsley

    Neil Warnock celebrated his 1,500th game as a manager in style as his Middlesbrough side claimed their first Sky Bet Championship win of the season courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Barnsley.

    More than three decades after he took charge of his first Football League game as manager of Scarborough, Warnock watched goals from Jonny Howson and Chuba Akpom secure his first home league win as Boro boss.

    The 71-year-old was back on the touchline after recovering from Covid-19, and he will have enjoyed his afternoon much more than his Barnsley counterpart Gerhard Struber, who saw his side slump to their third league defeat of the season despite Cauley Woodrow’s late penalty.

    Middlesbrough were the better side from the outset, although it took until first-half stoppage-time for them to make their superiority count.

    The hosts should have claimed the lead in the 14th minute, but having opened his Boro account in last weekend’s 1-1 draw at QPR, Akpom passed up a glorious opportunity to score again.

    He would eventually make it two goals in two games in the second half, but he failed to profit when Mads Andersen’s error enabled Britt Assombalonga’s through ball to make it into the Barnsley area, leaving him with a clear run on goal. The £2.75million signing from PAOK Salonika had plenty of time to pick his spot, but side-footed wide of the target.

    Bradley Collins tipped George Saville’s header around the post as Boro continued to create chances, and Akpom thought he had opened the scoring, albeit inadvertently, shortly after the half-hour mark.

    Sam Morsy’s shot hit the striker on the back as he turned towards the Barnsley goal, and the deflection completely wrong-footed Collins, resulting in the ball ending up in the net.

    Akpom spun away to celebrate, but he had been in an offside position when Morsy shot and after a consultation between referee Oliver Langford and his assistant, the effort was rightly chalked off.

    Boro deserved to be ahead on the balance of play, and the deadlock was finally broken in first-half stoppage-time.

    Marcus Tavernier cracked an excellent 25-yard free-kick against the crossbar, and after Saville got up to knock down the rebound, Howson swivelled neatly to hook home a slick half-volley.

    Barnsley’s only first-half opportunity came to nothing when Alex Mowatt curled wide after a one-two with Dominik Frieser, and the Tykes’ task became even tougher when Middlesbrough doubled their lead three minutes into the second half.

    Collins could only parry Tavernier’s 20-yard strike into Akpom’s path, and the former Arsenal trainee slotted home the rebound.

    Luke Thomas looped a shot over the crossbar via a deflection off Saville as Barnsley tried to get back into the game, and the visitors claimed their first league goal of the season in the 89th minute.

    Howson fouled Woodrow and the striker dusted himself down before converting from the penalty spot.
