Fleetwood Town and Barnsley one step from Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final

4 February 2016

Fleetwood Town and Barnsley go head-to-head tonight for a place in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final.

The pair meet at Highbury in the Northern Area Final second leg, just over three weeks since a 1-1 draw at Barnsley's Oakwell ground.

An unfortunate Adam Davies own goal had given Fleetwood the lead in Yorkshire, but Ashley Fletcher restored parity and it's now all to play for as the two clubs fight it out for a place at Wembley.

Barnsley are yet to defeat the Cod Army in four meetings, although the only previous encounter on the Fylde coast finished goalless.

Neither side has reached the Final of this competition before, and whoever comes out on top tonight will meet Oxford United at Wembley. The Sky Bet League 2 outfit booked their place under the arch by overcoming Millwall in the Southern Area Final, recording a 2-1 aggregate victory.
