Darren Bond to take charge at Oakwell tomorrow night

The match officials have been confirmed for our trip to Barnsley

23 November 2020

We're on the road again tomorrow night in the Sky Bet Championship, travelling to Oakwell to take on Barnsley. The home side come into the game just a point behind us, after four wins from their last five under new boss Valérien Ismaël. The match officials have now been confirmed for the game.

Referee: Darren Bond

Assistant Referees: Philip Dermot and Steven Meredith

Fourth Official: Karl Evans

Lancashire official Darren Bond will be in charge of tomorrow's trip to Barnsley. 

It will be the 17th time Bond has refereed us with, remarkably, 15 of the previous 16 outings coming with us as the away side. 

We are unbeaten in the last five of those games. A 1-1 draw at Ipswich Town in September 2018 was followed by a pair of draws by the same scoreline away at West Bromwich Albion in December 2018 and December 2019. This year has brought a 5-1 win over Hull City and last month's 2-1 victory, also in South Yorkshire, against Sheffield Wednesday. 

In total, we have won five, drawn five, and lost six of his games in charge. 

So far this term, Bond has shown 26 yellow cards and one red in eight outings. 

Barnsley 2020/21

147 fouls - 15th in Sky Bet Championship

16 yellow cards - 14th in Sky Bet Championship

2 red cards - 2nd most in Sky Bet Championship

Tomorrow's game is only available on iFollow, it will not be on Sky Sports or the red button. 

Season Ticket and Premium Seat Holders already have VIP access to the game but match passes are also available for £10 (£7 international fans) so you can watch live from Oakwell.
