David Wagner takes his Huddersfield Town side to South Yorkshire this afternoon to face SkyBet Championship Barnsley FC at Oakwell Stadium (kick-off 4pm).

It is the fourth pre-season clash for the team after facing League Two Accrington Stanley, League One Bury FC and 2.Bundesliga outfit SV Sandhausen.

Last time Town travelled to South Yorkshire was during last season’s promotion-winning campaign with the game finishing in a 1-1 draw.

Fans favourite Michael Hefele opened the scoring for the visitors before Marley Watkins equalised in the 75th minute.

Today’s game is likely to see a strong line-up for Town with most players expected to play 90 minutes as preparations for the Premier League season crank up a notch.

Bringing you all the action from this afternoon's pre-season clash is Examiner Football Writer Blake Welton.

Hits The Bar!

85 Minutes: That was nearly the breakthrough we were all hoping for then - Scannell meeting Chris Lowe’s deep cross at the back but his looping header hits the top of the bar.

Huddersfield Town Substitution

82 Minutes: Joe Lolley is replaced by youngster Lewis O’Brien - still 0-0 here.

Huddersfield Town Substitution

72 Minutes: First one of the day for David Wagner’s men - and Philip Billing is replaced by Sean Scannell. It means Lolley moves central and Tom Ince into the number 10 slot.

So Close!!

66 Minutes: Ince slips Quaner through one-on-one with Davies but the Barnsley keeper is once again equal to it! He was impressive during the league game here if I remember correctly....

End-To-End

65 Minutes: The game is opening up now - Adam Hammill creates room for himself before bending an effort inches wide.

Great Save!

63 Minutes: Arguably the best chance of the game so far - Collin Quaner is denied by Davies in the area after being found well by Lolley.

Barnsley Substitution

61 Minutes: Jacob Brown replaces Ike Ugbo for Barnsley - still 0-0 here at Oakwell.

Back-To-Front

Ouch!

50 Minutes: Lolley is back in the thick of it minutes later, being clattered by MacDonald and having treatment on the pitch - he should be OK to continue though.

So Close!!

48 Minutes: Great play by Joe Lolley sees the player drive past three and gets into the area before Angus MacDonald recovers to block his low effort. After the impressive approach-play he should have really done better.

Barnsley Substitutes

46 Minutes: However, there have been two changes for Barnsley - Tom Bradshaw and Stevie Mallan replacing Payne and Williams.

Second Half

We’re back underway at Oakwell with Town kicking-off the second 45 minutes - no changes for David Wagner’s men at the interval.
