Collins: Very lucky when he raced out of goal and totally missed his clearance, only for Rhodes to put a golden chance wide. The Owls striker found a way past him before the break. Not convincing. 5
Sollbauer: Missed a glorious opportunity to put the Reds in front early, but his goal drought continues. Brought off at the break. 6
Helik: A dream week was abruptly ended for the big Pole. He and his fellow defenders won't be happy at conceding twice. 6
Andersen: Cleared his lines and won challenges. The problems were elsewhere in the main. 6
Brittain: Not the force he can be going forward. 6
R Palmer: Up against two determined opponents in Bannan and Pelupessy and could not dictate.5
Mowatt: Whipped in some trademark deliveries of quality, but did not have it all his own way in the middle ground.
Styles: This was not vintage Styles, underlined with his mistake for the Owls' second. 5
Frieser: Quiet in the first half and Barnsley needed more from him. Taken off at the interval. 5
Woodrow: Had the ball in the net from a corner, but it was ruled out for an infringement. Below-par. 5
Dike: Barnsley's go-to man and comfortably their biggest weapon on the day. Two Owls defenders were booked for fouls on him. 7
Substitutes: Morris (Frieser 45). Put himself about and provided another physicla edge. Owls defence was up for fight. 6
Halme (R Palmer 45). Brought on to help Barnsley compete better in the engine room. But this was Wednesday's day. 6
Sibbick (Sollbauer 45). Entered the fray for Sollbauer at the break. 6
Chaplin (Woodrow 68), 6.
Not used: Walton, J Williams, Oduor, Adeboyejo.
Wildsmith: Thrust into the derby spotlight with Westwood picking up a knock in the warm-up. Looked hesitant at times. Went down with injury in the first half, but recovered. Protected well. 6
Urhoghide: Showed discipline and appetite for the fight. 7
Lees: Organiser in chief at the back. Relieved after one failure to clear was not punished. Booked. 7
Borner: Won his fair share and put his head where it hurts. Also booked for a foul on Dike. 7
L Palmer: Plenty of energy down the right and took care of Styles and played a part in the Owls' second goal. 8
Bannan: Grew into the game and became a dominant midfield force. Nice cross for Rhodes's opener. 8
Pelupessy: Sat in front of the defence and his positional play was excellent. 8
Reach: Did a job for the team in the wing-back role and produced a few raking passes. 7
Paterson: Won his fair share of challenges in midfield and was up for the fight. 7
Rhodes: Scored from his sort of range for his second goal in three starts. Good header backed up by a tap-in. 8
Windass: Floated around and took up some intelligent positions. Set up the Owls' second. 7
Substitutes: Green (Windass 84), 6.
Not used: Wildsmith, Harris, Penney, Brown, Hunt, Brennan. Galvin, Kachunga.
