Championship strugglers Barnsley will hope for some respite from their relegation battle when they host League Two outfit Barrow in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.
The Tykes are currently 23rd in the second tier and eight points adrift of safety, while the Bluebirds are four points above the drop zone in the fourth tier, placing 19th.
These two sides were regular opponents in the lower divisions in the 1950s and 60s, but have not faced each other since January 1970.
After finishing in the Championship playoffs last season, Barnsley look deep in trouble this year and have won just two of 25 matches in all competitions; both victories have come on home turf.
Poya Asbaghi replaced Markus Schopp in the dugout in November but has failed to win any of his first six matches in charge.
The Tykes were last in action on December 29 when they lost 2-1 away at high-flying Blackburn Rovers despite having 59% possession.
Barnsley were winners of the FA Cup in 1912 and have progressed past round three in each of the last two campaigns.
Barrow meanwhile hold the competition record for the most appearances in the third round without ever making it to round four.
