Chesterfield 2-1 Barnsley

Eoin Doyle
Eoin Doyle has scored 16 goals in League One this season

Striker Eoin Doyle scored a goal in each half as Chesterfield ended a run of seven league games without a win against in-form Barnsley.

Doyle headed straight at Ross Turnbull before opening the scoring with a lobbed finish past the goalkeeper.

He then moved to 16 League One goals for the season with a low shot from 15 yards to double Chesterfield's lead.

Sam Winnall had a header cleared off the line, before setting up Keith Treacy to pull one back.

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"I thought we played well. I thought out of possession today we were very good, because Barnsley are a free-scoring team with a lot of threats.

"We restricted them to very few chances which was pleasing.

"What happens with a defeat or two, it's the clammer for change and we've got to fix things and, at a club like ours, we've got to make sure we take small steps forward."

Barnsley manager Danny Wilson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

Wilson on Chesterfield v Barnsley

"We've been done by two poor goals from our defensive point of view.

"It's basic defending and that's what's cost us, really. We've had enough opportunities in the game, especially in the second half to get something back.

"Overall we can't be too disappointed with the performance, but the two goals we conceded cost us the game."
