Reds' Survival Hopes Given Boost

Wednesday April 16 2014

THE Reds gave themselves a real hope of staying up with a crucial win against Charlton last night.

Unlikely scorers Jean-Yves M'voto and fellow defender Tom Kennedy scored either side of the break to lift Barnsley off the bottom of the table with four games to go.

Charlton - who still have a game in hand on all their rivals - dominated for large parts but it was the Reds who struck the decisive blows before the home side's Astrit Ajdarevic's injury-time consolation halved the deficit.

Barnsley now go into Saturday's Yorkshire derby against Leeds United at Oakwell knowing a win could lift them out of the relegation zone.

The Reds' vital 2-1 triumph was bad news Birmingham, Doncaster and Blackpool, who are all now looking over their shoulders with just a handful of games left of an enthralling Championship season.

"It's the result we need to give ourselves a chance," said Danny Wilson. "It's given everybody that belief again and we've got a fantastic game at the weekend."

Last four games:

April 19: Leeds (H)
Apr 21: Derby (A)
Apr 26: Middlesbrough (A)
May 3: QPR (H)

Almost 1,000 fans made the long journey south to witness last night's win. Do you think we can beat Leeds on Saturday? Have your say below.

Went down last night, the fans were absolutley fantastic, singing from first minute to last and even outside the ground after. Jean Yves Mvoto is a revelation and a bit of praise for TK, not everyones cuppa tea but he has been playing good recently. Beat the dirty scum on Saturday, 2-0.

Great win last night by the lads, we've now given ourselves a chance that's all. 4 cup finals left, 3 look very winnable that's what i think we will need.Donny & Blackpool are catchable both got bad run ins especially Blacky who are in terrible form.
