15:12 Well here we are at last
15:14 Ahhhh Luis Boa Morte has collected a great pass from Lee Clark raced into the area and put in a good shot on his weaker right leg and hit the post.
15:15 O'Callaghan brings Louis Saha down from behind and the Ref has given us a free kick
15:16 The kick is taken and the ball is put into the Barnsley area but the Keeper gets a hand to it and Barnsley clear.
15:17 Andy Melville gets penalised on the halfway line for a supposed foul on Shipperley
15:17 The kick is taken but Fulham defend well and clear the attack
15:18 Now Fulham's attack breaks down and Barnsley return on the attack and win a corner. They take the kick and Louis Saha clears but the Tykes complain that he was riding on the back of one of their players. Oh dear Steve Hayward latterly of Fulham gets a yellow card for abusing the Ref.
15:22 Fabrice with the ball in the middle of the park. He looks up and tries a lob through to Louis Saha but O'Callaghan intervenes and clears
15:25 Barnsley win another corner. Steve Hayward goes to take the kick and the ball comes in and Steve Finnan knocks the ball off for another corner to the Tykes on the other side.
15:26 Steve Hayward trots over to take the second corner but his in swinging kick goes over the bar and it is a goal kick to Fulham
15:27 Fulham concede another corner to Barnsley after Paul Trollope makes a poor cross in front of goal to Andy Melville who has to put it off. The ball comes in but Maik Taylor collects it easily and clears up field
15:28 Barnsley attack again and the ball is sent in towards Shipperley who shoots but Maik Taylor puts it off for another corner
15:31 Owwww Fabrice collects a clearance and Bullock brings him down fortunately Fabrice seems all right. The Ref gives a free kick to Fulham
15:33 Louis Saha is through on goal but the last Barnsley defender brings him down in the area. Penalty? No the Ref thought everything was okay!!!!!
15:35 Fulham mount an attack and Fabrice sends a ball in towards Luis Boa Morte but its a bit too long and the Keeper clears
15:38 The rain has been falling most of the day in Yorkshire and now there are splashes when the players run
15:40 Barnsley are defending well and are playing a reasonable passing game.
15:41 Ahhhh Luis Boa Morte has the ball on the edge of the Barnsley area and he chips the Barnsley defence for Louis Saha to beat the Keeper. Louis Saha's effort is a bit weak and the Keeper has no trouble collecting the ball.
15:44 Barnsley have a chance in the last minute of the first half but the shot is weak and Maik Taylor gathers the ball.
15:47 There goes the half-time whistle and Fulham go off at 0-0 having had to withstand Barnsley pressure and creating just a few chances
16:05 Both teams are ready for the second half and the Ref blows for Fulham to kick off
16:06 Well if we can take the three points today it will be more than useful as Bolton are losing 2-0.
16:07 Lee Clark gives Fabrice Fernandes a northern english comment on his lack of effort when Fabrice fails to trap a ball that runs off for a throw on to Barnsley
16:11 Sean Davis wins the ball in the midfield and puts it forward to Luis Boa Morte but O'Callaghan breaks move up and clears
16:12 Fulham attack again and win a corner. Bjarne Goldbaek takes the kick but Chettle gets to the ball first and clears for the Tykes
16:14 Again Fulham win a corner and Fabrice Fernandes runs across to take the kick. In comes the ball but Barker is able to clear for Barnsley
16:15 Luis Boa Morte pinches the ball and puts Louis Saha through but he gets body checked. The Ref says nothing doing and waves play on.
16:19 Ahhhhhh Sean Davis rises to a Bjarne Goldbaek cross and heads it down and wide of the Keeper but the Keeper still manages to tip it away
16:20 Karl Heinz Riedle comes on for Fabrice Fernandes
16:22 Ohhh Karl Heinz on the break immediately and sends in an inch perfect pass to Louis Saha on the edge of the Tykes area but Keeper Miller rushes out and manages to thwart Louise
16:23 Barnsley win a freekick after a challenge by Luis Boa Morte in a dangerous spot. Steve Hayward lines up to take the kick but Maik Taylor has no problem and gathers the ball up
16:25 Fulham win a corner. Bjarne Goldbaek takes the kick and swings it in close to the goal. Ahhhh it is nearly in before Miller tips it over for another corner to Fulham
16:26 Bjarne takes the second corner and sends the ball in towards KarlHienz but the Ref whistles for an infringement by Karl Heinz
16:28 Luis Boa Morte runs down the left wing beating two Tykes and crosses in to KarlHeinz but the ball is just too high for him.
16:32 Andy Melville sees Luis Boa Morte free and sends a great ball forward. Luis takes the ball and passes on to KarlHienz but Regan gets there first and puts it off for a corner.
16:33 The corner is taken but Barnsley are able to clear.
16:35 Fulham mount an attack with Lee Clark crossing to Steve Finnan who is able to pass it into Louise Saha who shoots but the Keeper blocks it and the follow up from Luis Boa Morte is put over the bar.
16:37 Ahhhhhh Bjarne puts a cross into Karl Heinz and Chettle intervenes and it looks as if it is going to be an own goal before Miller pulls off an excellent save from his own player
16:39 Fulham attack again and the ball is crossed into KarlHeinz who rises and knocks it down but we haven't got anyone to capitalise on it.
16:42 Steve Finnan has been yellow carded for kicking the ball away after the Ref gave a freekick in a dangerous spot.
16:43 The kick is taken and KarlHeinz clears
16:44 Barnsley counter attack and the ball is passed up to Jones who runs into our area but fortunately he shoots wide.
16:46 Paul Trollope has the ball and he passes forward to Luis Boa Morte who surges forward but he is swamped by the Barnsley defence.
16:47 Owwww KarlHeinz has the ball on the left and he races into the Barnsley area and shoots but the Keeper makes a one handed save.
16:49 There goes the whistle and it is 0-0 at the end of the match and we go home to London with a point. Bolton scraped a 2-2 draw at home, Blackburn were beaten 2-1 away from home, Birmingham were beaten 3-1 and West Brom along with Watford drew
