Barnsley cruise to a 3-0 victory over Bury

Goals from Marley Watkins, Sam Winnall and Adam Hammill saw Barnsley coast to a 3-0 victory over Bury to extend their winning league run to seven games - in spite of their managerial chaos.

Lee Johnson left for Bristol City on Saturday despite his club's fine run of form, but it was business as usual at Oakwell.

Barnsley were on top from the start with Conor Hourihane putting a low drive wide and Hammill having a shot saved early on.

Watkins (20) opened the scoring when he created space for himself on the left-hand side before firing in a low shot, with the ball going just inside Ian Lawlor's right-hand post.

After Lawlor kept out Hammill's shot early in the second half and Aidan White put an effort over, Winnall (55) made it 2-0 with a fine low finish after Hammill and Hourihane combined to set him up.

Bury striker Leon Clarke wasted a good chance to reduce the arrears when he headed wide from a good position.

Hammill (66) completed the scoring, firing into the roof of the net from inside the area after connecting with Ashley Fletcher's low cross from the right.
