Ipswich and their players have the last laugh as they take aim at Barnsley’s tweets ahead of match

Ipswich and their players have the last laugh as they take aim at Barnsley’s tweets ahead of Tuesday night’s match with the hosts losing.

The Tractorboys took a huge step towards promotion back to Championship after goals from Nathan Broadhead, George Hirst and Conor Chaplin sealed a valuable victory at Oakwell.

Harry Isted did pull off a penalty save from a Broadhead spot kick, but that was the only positive for Barnsley as the Tractor Boys clinched what was their 12th win from their last 13 League One games.

Leading up to this game, Barnsley were seemingly in good spirits, and had reason to be as they hadn’t lost at home since the 2nd of January… until Tuesday night.

Ipswich , their players, their socials and fans couldn’t help but mock them come the final whistle.

In some of their tweets, Barnsley wrote: “Looking to make it ๐Ÿ”Ÿ in a row!”

“๐Ÿ™Œ We were ready five weeks ago… Tonight, we finally get it on ๐Ÿ’ช”

“WWWWWWWWWho’s next? ๐Ÿ˜Œ”

To which, following the 3-0 win, Ipswich and Conor Chaplin wrote:

If Ipswich win at home to Exeter on Saturday, it would mean a return to the second tier after a four-year hiatus which dragged on much longer than they had hoped.

Sheffield Wednesday, who are currently in third place, are four points behind with only two games remaining.

The defeat ended Barnsley’s hopes of automatic promotion and the team will now have to settle for an appearance in the playoffs.

Whoever doesn’t finish in the top two will battle it out in the playoffs with Barnsley and two other teams – two from Bolton, Derby and Peterborough.

The bottom four teams will be relegated to League Two with Forest Green Rovers’ relegation confirmed on the 15th of April.

Accrington and Morecambe could both join them on Saturday if they fail to win and other results go against them. This is how the table looked at Tuesday’s results…

Kieran McKenna praised his side’s second-half performance, saying as per the club website: “It was an outstanding performance against a very good team.

“We showed a lot of different sides to our game and stood up to intensity from Barnsley. We were resilient and solid and got the breakthrough before quickly adding a second.

“It was a good night in front of a wonderful following and I thought the second-half performance in particular was brilliant.

“I thought George was excellent tonight as well and gave their backline trouble all night. He did so well and got a deserved goal.

“The backing, as I say, was brilliant, and it was an incredible effort from them. It’s massive to have that following for away games like that.

“We have to keep our eyes on the next step now.”

Barnsley boss Michael Duff said, as per Yorkshire Post: “We got beaten by a good team. It sounds a stupid comment, but I thought we were the better team in the first half and we go 2-0 down.

“In the big games, it’s big moments. If you strip it right back, they missed a penalty which wasn’t a penalty in my opinion and we conceded a goal from a set-play and conceded from two straight balls down the pitch.

“If we are going to get beaten, I’d rather get beaten playing the way we play. We wanted to get in their faces and press them and we showed some good quality and good passages of play.

“But ultimately, we shoot ourselves in the foot with poor goals, which was unlike us. It’s very rarely that someone whacks the ball down the pitch and we get caught like that. Credit to them, they are a good team with good players.

“But there are positives within it, once you take away the emotion of the game.

“We were beaten 3-0 at home earlier this season and the reaction of the supporters who were here and stayed until the end told you everything.

“We have talked all season about building relationships with the team and supporters and if we’d been beaten 3-0 earlier in the season, we’d have been booed off. They got clapped off today as we’d just broken a 100-year record.

“There’s lots of positives. Most people would have taken fourth in the league. Yes, it’s disappointing as we have been chasing the top three for a long, long time. We were brave and got beaten and move on.

“This game was based on moments and that’s what the big games are (based on).”
