Oldham Athletic 1-2 Barnsley

Lee Johnson
Lee Johnson has won 12 of his 37 games since leaving Oldham to take charge of Barnsley last season

Barnsley ended a run of eight straight defeats in League One with a narrow victory at Oldham Athletic, which eased the pressure on manager Lee Johnson.

Adam Hammill hit the post for the visitors, before Conor Hourihane fired Barnsley ahead from 20 yards.

Oldham improved after the break and drew level when Mark Yeates fired home after collecting Dominic Poleon's pass.

But on-loan defender Kevin Long's powered in from close range to seal a crucial three points for the Tykes.

Oldham manager David Dunn told BBC Radio Manchester:

"Bitter cold day, bitter result, disappointing to come off the back of two wins.

"Poor first half performance, probably as bad as we've played to be honest.

"We started the second half really well and got ourselves back in the game with a goal."
