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

A three-one win at Walsall saw Barnsley move into the play-off places (at the expense of Coventry) with the Reds potentially coming up against the Saddlers in the end of season play-offs again?

We shouldn’t get too far ahead of ourselves mind should we and take the ‘clich├ęd’ approach many at the club have!

Anthony Forde’s struck the post with a freekick Man United loanee Ash Fletcher had us ahead on 17-minutes but Walsall level through top goalscorer Tom Bradshaw just before the half hour mark to see it all-square at the break.

Josh Brownhill’s first goal for the club, since coming in from Preston, saw him fire past Neil Etheridge early in the second half with Harry Chapman wrapping up the win before the hour when he added the third six-minutes later.

Not only did our winning at Walsall extend their winless run at home to six it saw us win an 11th-match in the last 13 to move us up into sixth three-points ahead of Coventry.

These were the other results.

Saturday 5th March 2016
Bury 0-0 Bradford
Coventry 0-1 Rochdale
Crewe 1-1 Burton
Doncaster 0-1 Shrewsbury
Fleetwood 2-2 Sheff Utd
Millwall 3-0 Blackpool
Oldham P-P Swindon
Port Vale 2-0 Colchester
Scunthorpe 0-0 Gillingham
Southend 0-1 Chesterfield
Walsall 1-3 Barnsley
Wigan 1-1 Peterborough

Burton (one-one) missed the chance to further extend the lead at the top when the leaders were held to a draw at struggling Crewe, with other results going for them with Wigan, Walsall and Gillingham all failing to win, either drawing or losing.

The Barnsley (three-one) win over Walsall not only saw the Saddlers recent disappointment go on is also saw the fine form the visitors to the Banks’s Stadium have been on go on with that win enough to take them above Coventry (one-nil), who lost to Rochdale.

Blackpool (three-nil) and Colchester (two-one) saw their chances of survival, they’re pretty slim for the U’s anyway, suffer further knocks with defeats to Millwall and Port Vale, respectively.

Who was the Reds MotM in this game? That’s what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
