Barnsley 1-2 Fleetwood Town

Striker Liam McAlinden's first-half goal claimed all three points as Fleetwood came from behind to beat Barnsley.

The hosts were in front when Chris Maxwell parried Conor Hourihane's free-kick to Peter Ramage who fired home.

Conor McLaughlin levelled the scores minutes later when he found the top left corner from the edge of the box.

But McAlinden, on loan from Wolves, tapped home Nick Haughton's corner to seal victory for the Cod Army.
