The referee today is Andy Woolmer.
Today's game sees Alex Neil face up against his former club, while Barnsley manager Paul Heckingbottom represented the Canaries briefly as a player...
Who will come out on top this afternoon?
City shooting from left to right in this opening half as we look at it, away from the visiting fans.
1 - Barnsley get us underway! OTBC!
1 - The hosts immediately try to advance down their left. Bennett puts out for a throw.
1 - Cross sent in by Yiadom from the left-back position. Ruddy up to claim before kicking long, with the ball sent back by the Reds.
2 - Kent cuts in from the left and dips an effort at goal. Well watched by Ruddy who adjusts for an awkward bounce to catch.
2 - Free-kick to the home side within their own half. Looking to go quite direct already it seems.
3 - City clear the immediate danger, winning a throw midway inside their own half on the left.
3 - Played back to Ruddy, who digs it out to halfway. Sent back to him by the Tykes' backline.
3 - Oliveira beaten in the air. City go back to Ruddy who finds Bennett before screaming at him to turn and play forward.
4 - Once again, back to Ruddy, who barks out more instructions. Dorrans battles in midfield and gets the ball...back to Ruddy!
4 - Oliveira scraps on the edge of the box. Ruddy shouting instructions to the forwards from inside his own box.
5 - Bassong back to Ruddy, who has been heavily involved early doors! Bennett plays forward, before Dorrans hooks left.
6 - Howson brings down superbly on the flank. City with a spell on the ball here and Josh twists expertly t draw a foul on the edge of the box. Free-kick to the away side, certainly within range.
@BoltonCanary: Excellent last week and, for me, excellent at Derby too. Mainstay in our promotion surge two years ago...
7 - Pritchard takes but sends wide of goal. Hard to say how close it was from this angle but a bit of a reaction from the Barnsley fans behind the goal suggests it wasn't miles away...
8 - Christmas approaching, Darren Huckerby's song in full flow from the City fans!
8 - Dorrans looks to ping to the right but it's towards nobody in particular and Barnsley can clear.
9 - Bennett puts out for a throw under not inconsiderable pressure. Yiadom to take on the left, finding Bradshaw who holds up.
9 - Play spread to the right and excellent tracking from Dorrans crucially cuts out a dangerous cross when Morsy is sent free down the flank. Corner to Barnsley.
10 - Taken short but offside when it's returned to the taker. Not 'one from the training ground', that.
10 - Ruddy punts long. Sent back towards City's goal and Bassong puts out for a throw on the right this time.
11 - Space created for a cross but it's far too deep and out for City's ball on the opposite flank, their right.
11 - Jacob wriggles free of his man midway inside the Barnsley half but can't quite find his brother.
12 - The ball is cleared and Barnsley get a throw inside City's half; the Tykes getting it forward quickly every time they get it.
12 - Again the home side move from a defensive area to an offensive one in quickfire fashion, and Bradshaw meets a cross from the right full to stroke home. 1-0.
@Andaluciacanary: Not any game I don't think, but certainly the first league game.
14 - The hosts with an early lead. They're pressing forward again but Brady thumps away for a throw.
