Josh Scowen
Josh Scowen scored his fifth goal of the season.

Barnsley climbed back into the play-off places as two second-half goals gave them victory at Fleetwood.

Tykes goalkeeper Adam Davies twice prevented Thomas Grant putting the home side ahead in the opening half.

And Barnsley took the lead when Joe Davis headed the ball into his own net after Sam Winnall pressured the centre-back into a misunderstanding with Fleetwood goalkeeper Chris Maxwell.

Josh Scowen nodded Adam Hammill's corner home to make sure of the points.
