An important win at Oldham last weekend wasn’t something Barnsley could build on at Peterborough on Tuesday with the Reds edged out three-two at London Road, or whatever it’s called these days!

Posh took the lead through Angol with Hourihane levelling it up from the spot before the break but second half goals from Addison and Maddison left the home side in control.

Barnsley had hope when Winnall scored but this was soon taken away again when Burnley loanee Long was sent off!

The other results in midweek were as follows:-

Tuesday 24th November 2015
Bradford 0-0 Coventry
Bury 1-2 Scunthorpe
Colchester 2-3 Crewe
Doncaster 3-0 Chesterfield
Fleetwood 2-1 Millwall
Gillingham 2-0 Rochdale
Oldham 2-5 Southend
Peterborough 3-2 Barnsley
Port Vale 2-0 Blackpool
Sheff Utd 2-4 Shrewsbury
Swindon 2-1 Walsall
Wigan 0-1 Burton

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

Fleetwood, who won emphatically five-one against Swindon in the previous game, followed this up with a two-one win over play-off pushing Millwall at the Highbury Stadium to make it back-to-back wins.

They’ve been on a disappointing run of late, however Shrewsbury have hardly been ‘flying’ but there were on Tuesday night at Bramall Lane when the Shrews came from behind to beat Sheffield United four-two!

And what a reaction by Swindon to that heavy Fleetwood defeat! The Robins bounced back with a two-one win at the County Ground against promotion chasing Walsall who saw their automatic push suffer a setback.

Barnsley are back in action at the weekend with the early kick-off at Oakwell against Sheffield United.
