VIDEO: Barnsley fans have bust-up with steward forced to break up fight

Barnsley fans have a bust-up with one steward forced to break up a fight from breaking out in the stands at Oakwell on Friday night.

A vlogger managed to capture the moment with the two supporters seemingly losing their cool at each other before being pulled apart.

The brief moment played out during the Tykes clash against West Brom, and you could say it was the only entertainment on show for those who witnessed the incident in the stands with the game finishing goalless.

Earlier in the video (6:10), fans in the same stand were laughing at one male getting his shirt off, giving it to a steward, before dancing away and making some sort of atmosphere.

Spirits were high despite Barnsley being in the relegation zone, with Poya Asbaghi’s side winless home and away since the 3rd of November.

However it would seem that as the game played out, frustrations showed and a disagreement of some sort led to fans losing their anger, take a look at the clip below…

West Brom missed the chance to continue their resurgence and edge closer to the Championship‘s automatic promotion places, especially after the results that followed afterwards.

In a game of few clear chances, it was the Baggies who went closest to breaking the deadlock with Cedric Kipre smashing the ball against the post.

Jordan Hugill also saw a shot blocked on the line and Karlan Grant was denied by a last-ditch clearance late on.


Barnsley’s Poya Asbaghi: “We worked hard defensively against a tough opponent. They are really physical and I think we tried to stand up against them, take on the fight, work hard together and keep a clean sheet. Of course, they will create chances, but in the end, it was a good team effort defensively.

“But it doesn’t matter about the opponent – we want to win. To be able to win these kind of games, it is difficult to win by outperforming them in physical strength. You have to be smart, you have to be fast, you have to be smart at moving the ball, you have to be faster in your counter-attacks to outperform them with speed instead. We didn’t show that enough to get the offence we wanted in this game, but at least we showed really good effort and that’s something to bring with us.”

West Brom’s Valerien Ismael: “It’s clear, we needed to score goals to win today. It’s like a broken record every week, exactly the same. We played well and created the chances we needed, but, at the end of the day, it’s all about the desire – the desire to score the goals – and the players need to take responsibility at some point and not be sloppy in front of goal.

“We know it is difficult; you never know what can happen in such a game. It’s frustrating tonight because we should take the three points.”
