History of the Brentford v Barnsley fixture

Brentford prepare to entertain Barnsley at Griffin Park on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Bees are clearly on top, having won 14 and lost only 4 of the 25 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Griffin Park was just last season, in November 2003, the Bees carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League Division Two match.
