Barnsley’s League 1 season continued with a win against Fleetwood at the Highbury Stadium on Saturday.

A two-nil win at Fleetwood saw Barnsley, obviously, not only collect the three-points this also took us back into he play-off place having dropped out after defeat last time.

Adam Davies made sure we went into half time level with Barnsley ahead on 47-minutes when a misunderstanding between Joe Davis and Fleetwood ‘keeper Chris Maxwell (with Sam Winnall putting the pressure on them) seeing the defender head into his own net.

Late on Josh Scowen, with his fifth-goal of the season, secured the points when he headed home a corner from Adam Hammill to move us back into the top six.

Now we’ll look to make sure we keep this in our own hands!

Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Saturday 19th March 2016
Bury 2-2 Shrewsbury
Coventry 0-0 Swindon
Crewe 1-2 Blackpool
Doncaster 1-2 Peterborough
Fleetwood 0-2 Barnsley
Millwall 1-0 Sheff Utd
Oldham 2-3 Rochdale
Port Vale 0-4 Burton
Scunthorpe 1-1 Chesterfield
Southend 1-1 Gillingham
Walsall 2-1 Colchester
Wigan 1-0 Bradford

A big ‘relegation six-pointer’ that neither side could afford to lose saw Blackpool (two-one) gain the points with the chances of staying up helped by this with Crewe now looking highly likely to join Colchester (two-one) who are cut adrift at the foot of the table with Walsall helping their promotion chances.

Doncaster’s (two-one) poor form went on with them beaten at the Keepmoat Stadium by Peterborough with Donny now looking in serious danger of dropping into League 2 unless they can find some form quickly.

Leaders Burton (four-nil) remained well placed to go up, quite possibly as Champions following a win at Port Vale with Wigan (one-nil) remaining in second with a win against play-off chasing Bradford.

Having lost last time Barnsley (two-nil) reacted well with a win at Fleetwood to helping their chances of making the play-offs, it did little to help the Cod Army’s bid to avoid relegation though.
