Glovers' Huish struggle continues

An own goal from Martin Cranie earned Yeovil a 1-1 draw against Barnsley but the Glovers remain without a home win since March.

The Tykes enjoyed the best of the first-half action with efforts from Keith Treacey and Sam Winnall going close, without testing Chris Weale.

The visitors took a deserved lead in the 26th minute when Conor Hourihane was afforded the time and space to fire home his third goal of the season.

His left-footed strike from 25 yards thundered past the outstretched Weale via a slight deflection.

Yeovil were bright in the second half, carving out opportunities but lacked any cutting edge in the final third.

Barnsley's defence cracked in the 76th minute when Yeovil levelled thanks to an own goal. Barnsley's Yeovil-born skipper Crainie put into his own net from a Jakub Sokolik cross after good work from Nathan Smith.

Yeovil had chances to bag a winner while Devante Cole failed to get enough on his first-time effort at the other end, leaving Barnsley four games unbeaten.
