Barnsley 2-1 Millwall

Sam Winnall
Barnsley's top-scorer Sam Winnall has scored 10 goals in all competitions this season.

Barnsley made a perfect start to the new year with victory over Millwall.

The home side took a deserved lead through top-scorer Sam Winnall, who rose highest to glance home a header from Adam Hammill's cross.

But the Lions were level just after the hour as Joe Martin's shot rebounded to grateful skipper Steve Morrison who tapped home from close range.

Parity was short-lived as Hammill skipped past two defenders and finished low to restore the Tykes' lead.

Barnsley are now 17th in the League One table, while Millwall have slipped to 10th place.

Millwall manager Neil Harris told BBC Radio London:

Harris on Barnsley v Millwall

"The equaliser came at a good time for us and then I thought there was only one team that was going to go on and win it.

"Overall, not being as clinical as we could and giving two poor goals away has cost us.

"I think we've got to be more organised, more disciplined, communication has got to be better to stop goals like that."
