Yeovil Town 1-4 Barnsley

Two teams in desperate need to pick up points from the remainder of the season are Barnsley and Yeovil. The visitors were in better form coming into this tie after an impressive 3-1 victory at Reading midweek, however, the hosts haven’t won a game, home or away, since the 8th of March, after they beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at Huish Park.

Barnsley broke the deadlock but it took until the second half for the goal to come. Chris O’Grady firing home from inside the box past keeper Stech. Barnsley doubled their advantage ten minutes later. The ball fell to Liam Lawrence who struck it into the bottom right corner.

Gary Johnson’s men were not going down without a fight, and pulled a goal back through defender Luke Ayling. His shot from inside the 18 yard box nestled its way into Steele’s bottom corner.

But it was Barnsley’s day. O’Grady regained the Reds’ two goal cushion only five minutes after Yeovil’s goal when he fired home from inside the area. And Barnsley made it four after Dale Jennings scored his second in as many games to put the Reds level on points with 21st placed Charlton.
