Barnsley 4-1 Gillingham

Devante Cole
Cole, son of former Manchester United striker Andy, scored his first senior goal

Barnsley made it three games unbeaten with victory over Gillingham.

Conor Hourihane opened the scoring with fine left-footed strike into the corner before Sam Winnall headed in Reece Brown's cross to put Barnsley 2-0 up.

Substitute Devante Cole side-footed Joe Dudgeon's centre in off the underside of the bar to stretch their lead.

Gills captain Danny Kedwell tapped home after his penalty was saved by Adam Davies but Dale Jennings' strike ended any hopes of a fightback.

Gillingham manager Peter Taylor told BBC Radio Kent:

"I think we were doing OK, it was a very, very even game and then you come in 2-0 down.

"Then you've get a goal pretty sharpish, but they get the third, so it's game, set and match.

"For us today there was no end product and unfortunately for us it's another day where we haven't done enough to be good defensively.

"There's no excuses, Barnsley were better than us today, simple as that."
