ANOTHER win for Barnsley last night saw them move out of the relegation zone.

In a much-hyped match, Wolves - just a point above the Reds before last night's crucial game - grabbed the initiative early on when Bjorn Sigurdarson put the midlands club in front.

However, David Flitcroft's resurgent Barnsley side equalised just after the break, spurred on by a near 11,000 Oakwell crowd. The club's stand-out performer since Flitcroft's arrival, Chris Dagnall, headed in his ninth of the season.

From then on it was a great battle. Wolves were rejuvenated after Dagnall's goal, and Barnsley continued to showcase their new-found confidence.

Persistence paid off for the home side, and substitute Jacob Mellis side-footed the ball past Carl Ikeme in the 73rd minute. The score remained the same, and the Reds took a huge three points.

On current form, Barnsley are top of the Championship's form guide. They have now won eight of their last nine games, and their last six in all competitions.

The Reds are now in 20th place in the table, on 37 points along with local rivals Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday. Such is the closeness of the league, two wins would take them into the top half if results go their way.

Next up for Flitcroft's side is another huge game away at bottom club Bristol City on Saturday afternoon.
