Barnsley, having beaten Burton last Saturday to recover from the Chesterfield defeat to kick-off, made it back-to-back League 1 wins with a dramatic midweek win at Millwall on Tuesday.

Having fallen behind to an Onyedinma (26) goal Winnall (38) made sure it was one-one at the break. Mawson’s (56) fine volley had Barnsley from behind to lead and on the way to victory before an equaliser in the final 10-minutes from Onyedinma (82) that seemingly would frustrate the Reds….

Alas Nyatanga (90) grabbed the injury-time winner!

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Fleetwood, Walsall and Wigan?

You’ll never be able to go far wrong, unless on the wrong side of it of course – or a neutral – in a seven-goal thriller will you! So Fleetwood winning four-three, impressive enough in it’s own right, in a topsy turvy game with Bury at Gigg Lane stands out.

Rochdale, previously unbeaten, losing at Spotland to Walsall is a good result, a two-one win for the travelling Saddlers would make a return journey pleasing!

As for Wigan, they’ve had it hard the past few years since the glory of winning the FA Cup! However even that came in the Premier League relegation season. They got the season up and running with an emphatic three-nil win over Mark Robins’ Scunthorpe at the DW Stadium.

Barnsley are of course back in action this weekend against Bradford at Oakwell.
