Conor Washington scored his fourth goal of the season against Barnsley

Conor Washington scored his fourth goal of the season to help Peterborough beat Barnsley and stay second in League One.

Devante Cole put the visitors in front when he flicked James Bree's cross into the top corner on the volley.

Posh put Barnsley's defence under pressure and were rewarded when Washington slotted Ryan Williams' misplaced pass into the bottom corner.

Marcus Maddison's free-kick gave them the lead before James Bailey's second yellow reduced Barnsley to 10 men.

Barnsley manager Danny Wilson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

Danny Wilson: Barnsley manager on Peterborough defeat

"I thought it was a great game. We came here and had a real good go at them. I thought we were exceptional throughout the game.

"The lads gave it everything and you can't ask any more of players.

"I thought some of the lads were outstanding today and that's the consistency I'm talking about even though we're on the wrong end of the result."
