Barnsley take on Burton Albion this weekend for only the fourth time and it will come almost exactly two years since the sides first met.

It's somewhat remarkable that Saturday's clash is a Championship fixture - the sides then faced off in the first round of the FA Cup on November 8, 2014 with the Reds in League One and the Brewers in League Two.

And the gulf was seemingly a lot wider then too, with Barnsley romping home 5-0 winners at Oakwell and Sam Winnall bagging his first ever professional hat-trick.

Winnall struck twice just before half-time and then after the break, Conor Hourihane made it 3-0. The Reds striker completed his treble with a little over 15 minutes remaining and on-loan Devante Cole came off the bench to complete the scoring late in the game.

There's a fair chance, the next encounter will be a little closer.
