The Thursday Preview: Barnsley Vs Sheffield United

Although I don’t live in Yorkshire, I’ve little doubt as to which clubs the newspapers of the white rose county will be prone to concentrate on and hence, can guess at the frustration this will bring for fans of Barnsley, notwithstanding their access to the brilliant On the Ponty End podcasts.
