Gillingham 2-1 Barnsley

Bradley Dack
Bradley Dack has scored 15 goals this season

Gillingham moved up to second in the League One table with victory over Barnsley thanks to goals from Dominic Samuel and Bradley Dack.

Samuel gave the hosts the lead when he latched onto Rory Donnelly's through-ball to finish past keeper Adam Davies.

Conor Hourihane levelled for Barnsley on the volley but, a minute later, Davies parried Donnelly's shot into the path of Dack who tapped home.

Hourihane could have levelled again but his late long-range shot went wide.
