Results aren’t the be all and end all of pre-season but a win will always be taken and Barnsley had only secured one victory so far. Well, until Tuesday.

A second half brace from Chelsea loanee Ike Ugbo saw the Reds to a 2-0 win at Rochdale.

Shortly past the midway point of the second half Adam Hammill combined with Andy Yiadom and George Moncur before Lloyd Isgrove crossed into Tom Bradshaw who saw his header kept out but Ugbo was able to force home his first for the club

Victory was secured in the last minute when Moncur put Ugbo through who managed to fend off a Rochdale marker, round the goalkeeper and score to complete his brace and a Barnsley win at Spotland.

Townsend (GK); McCarthy (B. Williams), Jackson (MacDonald), Lindsay (Pinnock), Fryers (Yiadom); Hammill, Sessi (Moncur), J. Williams (Mowatt), Isgrove (Mallan); Brown (Ugbo), Bradshaw.
