Barnsley Bag Brilliant Win To Boost Survival Bid

A BRILLIANT Barnsley boosted their survival hopes with a fine away win over play-off hopefuls Reading.

Danny Wilson's side went ahead through captain Stephen Dawson's 16th-minute effort, before the hosts levelled through a Pavel Pogrebnyak penalty to make it all square at the interval.

Reuben Noble-Lazarus restored the Reds' lead with a clever chip, before a 25-yard strike from an in-form Dale Jennings secured a surprise 3-1 win for the away side.

"When you witness a performance like that, of course we can stay up," said a defiant Danny Wilson. "We fully deserved the win and it will give our confidence a great boost."

The night was only marred by a surprise win for Charlton away at Nottingham Forest, which means the Reds remain three points from safety, although Charlton have two games in hand.

The Reds, who are now off the bottom of the table, have a crucial game away at Yeovil on Saturday. The clubs are level on points, with Barnsley having a game in hand.

Has last night's performance boosted your hopes that they can pull off another herculean survival attempt? Have your say below.

Unfortunately for Reds other results ensured they are still 4 points from safety.

Not many games left and Charlton have games in hand.

One of those games are against us. If we beat them then who knows. Charlton are not that good either.

Keep the faith.

A great performance but I don't think we can get out of the mess we are in. But at least we showed some fight and a fair bit of skill with the goals. Good to see Ruban taking his chance and give us a bit of hope for next season! You reds!
