Barnsley 0-0 Sunderland

Barnsley and Sunderland fought out a 0-0 draw as they both missed the opportunity to take what could have been a vital win in the promotion race.

League One's second and third-placed sides created several chances but had to settle for a point apiece.

Just a few minutes in, Barnsley created the first chance through Mamadou Thiam, who was through on goal, but Jon McLaughlin was quick off his line to turn the ball over the bar with a strong hand.

The visitors responded with Max Power running down the left, cutting inside and aiming a curling effort towards goal only to be denied by Adam Davies at full stretch.

The best chance came just before the break when Thiam wriggled his way into the box, switched the ball on to his left foot but his effort came agonisingly back off the bar.

In the second half, Sunderland created their best chance when Jack Baldwin sent a perfect pass to Power, who was through on goal, but he dragged his effort wide.

Barnsley's Cauley Woodrow headed in Alex Mowatt's cross from close range late on, only to be flagged for offside.
