Barnsley lost a 2-0 lead in a 2-2 draw at Queens Park Rangers who scored a 91st-minute equaliser in the Saturday lunchtime encounter.
Dominik Frieser and Cauley Woodrow, with his 50th for the club, scored during an excellent first half performance by the Reds but the hosts were on top in the second period, pulling one back on 78 minutes after a big chance at the other end, before the late leveller.
Barnsley now have five points from their first four games of the Championship season.
Markus Schopp kept exactly the same team as the one that lost 1-0 at home to Luton Town on Tuesday. Cameron Thompson replaced George Miller on the bench.
The first half-chance fell for the hosts but George Thomas' acrobatic flick floated into the arms of Brad Collins.
But the rest of the first half was a masterclass from Barnsley, who pressed their hosts frantically when QPR tried to pass the ball out from the back and played some magnificent flowing football.
The Reds took the lead in the 14th minute. After some good passing near halfway by Josh Benson and Callum Styles, Liam Kitching's excellent lofted pass allowed Frieser to beat the offside trap and go clean through on the left of the box before firing into the bottom corner.
It could have been 2-0 three minutes later when Kitching, in the home box following a corner, headed wide from seven yards out from Callum Brittain's right-wing cross. Woodrow then fired just wide from about 22 yards.
Woodrow did get his first goal of the season, and his 50th for the club, just before the half hour-mark following another fine move. Styles saw his right-wing corner cleared but found space on the right of the box to run onto a fantastic chipped pass by Benson and squared low for Woodrow to tap in almost on the line.
Woodrow almost scored again soon after when Brittain played him in on the right of the box but goalkeeper Senny Dieng saved his effort from a tight angle on the right of the box.
QPR made a double change on 33 minutes and switched from 3-5-2 to 4-4-2 but they were outplayed throughout the first half with Barnsley playing some superb football.
After the break, Benson almost scored direct from a corner but it was touched over while both he and Styles were booked for late tackles which stopped QPR breaking on the counter-attack.
QPR were much improved in the second half, with their fans getting behind them, and centre-back Jimmy Dunne, who came on at half-time, headed wide from a right-wing corner on 58 minutes.
Collins made an excellent save on 71 minutes, keeping out a Charlie Austin headed from Ilias Chair's right-wing free-kick which was given away by Kitching who lost the ball to Albert Adomah then wrestled the QPR man to the ground and was booked. The goalkeeper then came to the edge of the box to beat Stefan Johansen to a ball over the top and tackled Adomah outside his area.
Barnsley should have gone 3-0 up when Woodrow and Frieser both went through on goal and the Reds captain overhit a pass which would have given the Austrian a simple tap-in. Seconds later, QPR attacked on the left and Ilias Chair beat Toby Sibbick before smashing in from the tight angle about 12 yards out.
Woodrow had another big chance when a goal kick put him clean through and he tried to round Dieng but fired wide. QPR thought he was offside.
Osman Kakay saw a 25-yard shot easily held by Collins in the 88th minute but the goalkeeper could only get a hand to Austin's injury-time equaliser which flew into the top right corner after he met Yoann Barbet's low left-wing cross six yards out.

  • 12:38pm
    A bright start for the visitors, they are passing it around well and getting into decent attacking areas without creating a chance yet. Away end in good voice too
  • 12:39pm
    Frieser and a QPR player are down receiving treatment

  • 12:52pm
    The home fans are getting annoyed here. The Hoops are trying to play out from the back against Barnsley's excellent pressing is thwarting them. The Reds are far more coherent and threatening than their hosts
  • 12:54pm
    25 QPR have a corner, they take it short then Woodrow clears but the hosts attack again and Willock's right-wing cross is smashed across the box

  • 12:58pm

  • 12:59pm
    A fantastic achievement for Cauley Woodrow. Not many players get 50 goals for a club these days. He's the first to do so for Barnsley since Bruce Dyer 20 years ago. A truly superb player for the Reds
  • 1:01pm
    31 Woodrow close to another one after Brittain played him on the right and his shot from an angle on the right is saved
  • 1:03pm
    This is crazy. Barnsley are all over QPR. Clarke Oduor wins the ball in the hoops box then almost replicates Paddy McCourt by skipping amazingly around two defenders in the box but the ball just runs away from him and Woodrow. 0-2 after 33 mins
  • 1:05pm
    Double change for QPR. They cannot cope with Barnsley at the moment
  • 1:06pm
    George Thomas off for Dominic Ball and Andre Dozzell for Albert Adomah
  • 1:09pm
    So far Barnsley have been excellent, playing some really good football and badly rattling their hosts with excellent pressing
  • 1:14pm
    Only a couple of minutes left in this half. the hosts are finishing it fairly strongly. Barnsley will just want to hold on at 2-0 now
  • 1:17pm
    HALF-TIME: QPR 0, Barnsley 2. A sensational performance by the Reds who have scored through Frieser and Woodrow while playing some tremendous football

    56 Callum Styles is booked after taking out a QPR player on the counter-attack
  • 1:44pm
    Albert Adomah also booked, presumably for something he said to the referee
  • 1:44pm
    The crowd wanted Styles sent off there. it was a pretty cynical tackle as the hosts broke away following a cleared corner
  • 1:45pm
    59 Big chances for 2-1. Sub Jimmy Dunne heads wide from a right wing corner
  • 1:49pm
    Jasper Moon replaces Romal Palmer. I can understand Schopp wanting a more defensive presence to see this game out. Another good performance from Palmer who applauds the fans on his way off and gets a huge cheer back.
  • 1:51pm
    63 Austin shoots over from about 25 yards
  • 1:52pm
    The home crowd are furious with Collins, who they think is wasting time with all his goal kicks. Adomah places the ball on the left of the six yard box for him and he moves it to the right.
  • 1:56pm
    It's been a very fiery second half so far but the Reds have stood up well to it so far. Moon's introduction seems to have calmed things down a little and stopped QPR breaking through the middle
  • 1:57pm
    Devante Cole comes on for Clarke Oduor, who has played really well today - winning the ball in good areas and showing his usual magnificent footwork
  • 1:59pm
    Kitching loses the ball to Adomah who he wrestles to the ground on the right and is booked

  • 2:04pm
    Ilias Chair pulls one back
  • 2:07pm

    Halme comes on for Benson

    85 QPR free-kick about 25 yards out. Barbet shoots into the wall then Dickie shoots from 45 yards but Collins catches

    Brad Collins has been superb today. He had little to do in the first half but, after the break, he has made a fantastic save and times his runs off his line brilliantly.
  • 2:16pm
    88 QPR win a corner on the left and take it quickly but it only results in a 25-yard shot by Kakay which is easily caught by Collins
  • 2:17pm
    Into the 90th minute now. It's been a gruelling second half for the Reds but can they hang on for a big win?
