Barnsley: Fans express shock and anger after Carabao Cup exit

Barnsley were among the Championship clubs knocked out of the Carabao Cup in the first round last night, with the Reds subjected to a humbling 0-3 home defeat by League Two opponents Carlisle at Oakwell.

The Reds gifted Carlisle their first goal with a sloppy backpass that gave Harry McKirdy the chance to slip the ball beyond Brad Collins and break the deadlock. [via BarnsleyFC.co.uk]

Two goals in five second half minutes then sealed victory for the Cumbrian visitors, with Jack Bridge’s penalty and a Nathan Thomas strike inflicting further damage on Barnsley. [via BarnsleyFC.co.uk]

It could have been a different story had Cauley Woodrow’s header at 0-2 found the net rather than the upright, although Carlisle had a couple of chances late on to further extend their lead. [via BarnsleyFC.co.uk]

The Reds had not lost at home in Daniel Stendel’s 14 months in charge at Oakwell until last night, when the League Two side ended a winless away record that stretched back to January. [via BBC]
