Yeovil v Barnsley
Conor Hourihane scores his third goal since joining Barnsley from Plymouth

Yeovil's long wait for a home win continued as they were held to a draw by Barnsley at Huish Park.

The Glovers have not won on their own ground since March and needed an own goal from Martin Cranie to salvage a point against Danny Wilson's side.

After Keith Treacy and Sam Winnall had gone close, Conor Hourihane's deflected shot from 25 yards put Barnsley ahead.

Yeovil improved after the interval and levelled when Cranie diverted Jakub Sokolik's cross into his own net.

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"I think the overriding emotion was that I was proud of their second-half performance.

"I said before the game that these would be the strongest team we've come up against so far and they showed that in the first half.

"We weren't quite ready for their sharp, quick, clever play.

"We weren't able to create enough opportunities to look dangerous, but in the second half we made substitutions and we showed that willingness and desire to get in the box and create chances."

Barnsley manager Danny Wilson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"It was a great draw at the end. For the first 45 minutes we dominated the game and possibly should have had more goals to take in at half time.

"It was quite the opposite in the second half but I'm delighted to come here and get something to take back with us."
