Barnsley 3-0 Bury

Sam Winnall
Sam Winnall has scored 10 goals in his last nine games

Barnsley began life without boss Lee Johnson with victory over Bury for their seventh straight League One win.

The Tykes, who Johnson left for Bristol City on Saturday, were ahead early on with Marley Watkins' great solo goal.

Sam Winnall sweetly struck his 17th of the season for the hosts after clever work from Conor Hourihane.

Adam Hammill finished Ashley Fletcher's centre for 3-0 before Leon Clarke shot wide when one-on-one for Bury, managed by ex-Tykes boss David Flitcroft.

Barnsley had Johnson's former assistant Tommy Wright and coach Paul Heckingbottom in temporary charge.

Having reached the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final with victory over Fleetwood on Thursday, they moved up to 10th and are now five points off the play-offs, while Bury stay 15th.

Barnsley joint-caretaker boss Paul Heckingbottom told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"We tried to stress that Thursday had gone and it was important to focus on this game in terms of application, momentum and getting their minds right in what was another big game.

"We were a little bit sluggish at times, especially first half, but again it shows if your mind's right, you're OK as we got stronger as the game went on.

"It's been a hectic week, but to be honest it's probably better that way because you get everything over and done with in a few days.

"We've managed to get the result which is great so now we just move forwards and carry on as normal."
