OverviewBrentford ran out 8-1 winners the first time they faced Barnsley in the old Division Two in 1934. The goals continued in the next two encounters – both ending 3-3.
These two have been up and down the divisions, playing their football as low as the fourth tier in the 60s and 70s. Now together in the Championship since 2016, Barnsley have had the upper hand, but only just. Brentford will point to away wins in 2019/20 and 2020/21 as a sign that the tide is turning.
