Barnsley’s League 1 season continued with a defeat against Chesterfield at Oakwell on Saturday.

The Barnsley chances of making the play-offs took a blow, not quite a terminal one but certainly a damaging one, with relegation threatened Chesterfield beating us two-one.

After a goalless first half Lee Novak headed in a cross from Gboly Ariyibi to give Chesterfield the lead ahead of the hour with Adam Hammill’s equaliser, when his effort was deflected in, made it one-all on 75-minutes.

Chesterfield lost Jamal Campbell-Ryce to a second yellow card three-minutes after the Reds drew level, which would have left us favourites to win with Ollie Banks restoring the Spireites lead on 81-minutes.

Hammill was denied a second equaliser when he hit the post seeing us six-points off the top six now.

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

These were the other results.

Saturday 9th April 2016
Barnsley 1-2 Chesterfield
Blackpool 0-1 Colchester
Bradford 1-0 Swindon
Bury 1-0 Doncaster
Millwall 3-1 Shrewsbury
Oldham 1-0 Walsall
Peterborough 1-2 Rochdale
Port Vale 3-0 Crewe
Scunthorpe 1-0 Burton
Sheff Utd 0-0 Gillingham
Southend 2-2 Fleetwood
Wigan 1-0 Coventry

They won at Wembley last week to secure the JPT but Barnsley (two-one) could struggle to make the play-offs now after losing to Chesterfield, who moved closer to safety with this win at Oakwell.

Colchester (one-nil) may yet pull off a remarkable relegation escape with a win at Blackpool to give them a little more hope of staying up with Pools remaining very much in the battle to stay in League 1 with Oldham’s (one-nil) bid to stay up also helped beating Walsall.

Bradford (one-nil) and Millwall (three-one) winning at home against Swindon and Shrewsbury, respectively, are looking as though play-off places are now secured with Wigan (one-nil) moving closer to winning the title with a win over Coventry to move away from Burton (one-nil) who were beaten at Scunthorpe.
