Another Barnsley and Huddersfield day - like yesterday! A famous day back in 1950 Villa are beaten and Pompey are the Leahue Champions (again) on goal average!! Happy days eh? Before I was born too.

Yes, something about Barnsley, who would have been relegated this season if we hadn't lost our points. Anyway, the home wins over Carlisle in 1985 & the dykes in 2001.
