Saints draw Barnsley
12:34pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in Sport
Saints have been drawn away to Barnsley in the Capital One Cup second round.
The fixture will mean a reunion with former Saints youngster Martin Cranie while former loanee Jacob Mellis also plays for the Tykes.
Cranie came through the youth ranks at Saints and made 25 appearances for the first team before being moving to Portsmouth on a free transfer in 2007.
He recently notched over 100 appearances for Coventry before switching to Oakwell last summer.
Mellis made 15 appearances for Saints during a relatively brief loan spell at the club in 2009.
Barnsley began their Championship season with a 4-0 home defeat by Wigan but won through to the Capital One Cup second round with a penalty shootout win over Scunthorpe.
Saints have not beaten Barnsley in their last five visits to Oakwell but did triumph there the last time the sides met in the League Cup.
That was in 1997 with Matt Le Tissier and Kevin Davies getting the goals.
The tie against the side managed by David Flitcroft will be played in the week beginning Monday, August 26.
