Barnsley 1-1 Preston North End

Jabo Ibehre
Jabo Ibehre has played for three teams in the Football League this season

Jabo Ibehre's first goal for Barnsley helped earn a draw against high-flying Preston at Oakwell.

Joe Garner tapped in from close range for his 20th league goal of the season to give the visitors the lead before half-time.

Debutant Cameron Stewart could have equalised for Barnsley but he failed to convert from Declan John's cross.

Ibehre headed home Mason Holgate's pinpoint cross from inside the six-yard box as the game ended in a draw.

Preston, who are now unbeaten in their last 10 League One games, move three points clear of third-placed Swindon whilst Barnsley drop just outside the play-off places.

The draw means the Tykes remain unbeaten since manager Lee Johnson took over at the end of February.

Barnsley head coach Lee Johnson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

Johnson on Barnsley v Preston

"I thought we played well the 15 minutes, then we sat off a little bit and they bullied us.

"We had to ride it out but we conceded. So at half-time we changed a few things and we were much better. I think a draw was a fair result.

"I was still disappointed not to win but they are a good team and today's game was a great advert for League One football."
