Barnsley win against South Yorkshire rivals with two late goals

Updated: Mar 22, 2023

Mads Andersen made a crucial assist in the 10th minute to Devante Cole on the left who successfully managed to beat goalkeeper Cameron Dawson. Just two minutes after Devante's goal, James Norwood further increased Barnsley's lead by scoring a low strike from a distance just outside the box, assisted again by Devante Cole, in commanding form. Sheffield Wednesday managed to return late in the first half by decreasing the two goal deficit, when a long ball from Will Vaulks found Michael Smith on the right. Smith sent a low cross which Lee Gregory was able to turn into the net from close range, shortly after the half-hour mark. The game was tied at 2-2 when Barry Bannan made a key pass over the top to Marvin Johnson on the left. Johnson then managed to send a low cross to Lee Gregory who got a superb finish completing his brace around the 75th minute-mark.

With just seven minutes remaining, Max Watters took advantage of a problematic ball into the area caused by Luca Connell, and fired a shot past goalkeeper Cameron Dawson, giving the hosts the lead...

To further solidify their position as fourth in League One, Liam Kitching extended their unbeaten league run to 12 games as he scores one-on-one with the keeper at the end of second-half injury time. Barnsley now appear to be in the best clinical form in League One and statistically look favourites to get themselves promoted whilst other teams in the top half continue to shake after continuous dominating form. With the current boom for Barnsley, is there potential for the team to slip into an automatic promotion spot? Based on current form, it wouldn't be hard to believe that it's possible! The Colliers are away at Exeter City next Tuesday for late League One action. With their game in hand of Ipswich, if Barnsley manage to pick up three points, this could retain their position in 4th, but it could also move them level on points with Ipswich in 3rd place with 75 points - just 3 points shy of 2nd place Sheffield Wednesday. The race for an automatic promotion slot is surely on for the top 4 in Sky Bet League One.
