George Waring scored on his professional debut for Barnsley

Striker George Waring scored on his professional debut to help Barnsley to victory over 10-man Yeovil.

Glovers defender Ben Nugent was shown the red card for raising his elbow during a tangle with Waring.

The 6ft 5ins Waring, on loan from Stoke and one of three debutants in the starting line-up, tapped in after a mistake from goalkeeper Jed Steer.

And Steer's day got even worse when he brought down Barnsley skipper Conor Hourihane, who tucked away the penalty.

Yeovil remain bottom of League One, having lost five of their last six games, while Barnsley moved up to 16th.

Barnsley boss Danny Wilson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"I think it was a gritty performance but it was never going to be easy.

"We defended well against the wind in the first half and then we managed the game very well after the break.

"The red card is indefensible and it's right in front of the ref, I don't think anyone can complain about it but I thought their keeper might have got a touch on the ball for the penalty.

"It's one of the youngest sides I have ever put out so overall it was very satisfying to get the result and it will be a great boost of confidence for them."

Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"We're disappointed, of course we are.

"We believe it was a sending off. Whether it was retaliation or whatever, we're taking that as read.

"But the penalty has definitely gone against us and wasn't right. Jed Steer is an honest lad and certainly for the penalty he was really upset, because he did get to the ball first."
