Barnsley lost a 2-0 lead, gained in the first 12 minutes, to lose 3-2 at home to Notts County at Oakwell last night.

The Reds went ahead in eight minutes from Devante Cole with a right-footed shot from the centre of the penalty area set up by Conor Hourihane.

And it was Hourine himself who scored the second as the Reds made it 2-0 in the 12th minute - and this time Cole was the provider.

But the match produced its third goal in 20 minutes as Gary Thomson pulled one back for County with a right-footed shot from outside the box.

County equalised after 62 minutes with a goal by Michael Petrasso who headed in from close range after Garry Thomson set up the chance.

And it was Petrasso again nine minutes later with a right-footed shot into the top corner.

Barnsley boss Danny Wilson had made one enforced change for the visit of play-off hopefuls County.

James Bailey was out through suspension after picking up two yellow cards at Peterborough on Saturday, so up stepped young Paul Digby to take his place in the midfield.
