Quickfire double helps Barnsley to victory

Two goals in two minutes proved decisive for Barnsley as they claimed a 4-2 win against fellow strugglers Blackpool.

Sam Winnall scored twice for the hosts, while Marley Watkins' classy effort and a late Matty Templeton strike proved enough to cancel out goals from Mark Cullen and Andy Little for the visitors.

Barnsley took the lead after three minutes when Reece Wabara's cross found the unmarked Winnall and he headed home from close range.

Blackpool equalised after the break as Elliot Lee supplied Cullen on the edge of the box and the striker buried his shot into the corner of the net.

Barnsley struck back immediately through Winnall, who curled his effort past Dean Lyness, before the striker set up Watkins to score from inside the area two minutes later.

Blackpool scored a late consolation thanks to Little's late drive from the edge of the box, before Templeton sealed the win in stoppage time after a quick break with a well-struck effort into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.
