The result last Saturday wasn’t the reaction that Barnsley, or Lee Johnson, wanted to the three-nil loss against Rochdale prior but defeat was suffered again at Oakwell when Shrewsbury went away with a late winner in a two-one win over the Reds.

Ellis’ (6) early goal put Shrewsbury ahead but Winnall’s (33) goal before the break looked to have earned Barnsley a point at least….that was until a deflected Clark (90) effort won it for the visitors at the death!

The other results last weekend were as follows:-

Sat 5th September
Southend 2 – 1 Peterborough
Barnsley 1 – 2 Shrewsbury
Chesterfield 2 – 3 Wigan
Crewe 1 – 3 Swindon
Fleetwood 1 – 1 Rochdale
Gillingham 1 – 0 Doncaster
Oldham 1 – 2 Bradford
Scunthorpe 0 – 1 Blackpool
Walsall 0 – 1 Bury

Sun 6 Sep 2015
Burton 1 – 2 Coventry

Looking at these results, ahead of the fixture still to be played of course, the stand out ones have to be the wins for Southend and Blackpool?

Southend’s two-one win at Roots Hall against Peterborough, the early game on Saturday on Sky Sports, saw the Shrimpers record a first win back in League 1 since winning the play-off final in dramatic fashion against Wycombe in May.

A first win of the season, and indeed since January as a then Championship club, from Blackpool wouldn’t have been something many would have expected when the Tangerines went to Scunthorpe. But they did that with a one-nil win at Glanford Park!

Barnsley are back in action this weekend, as we look to ensure it doesn’t become a hat-trick of successive defeats, with a League 1 game against Swindon at Oakwell.
