Barnsley posted a third League One win on the bounce as they beat Charlton 2-1 at Oakwell.

Fine goals from Brad Potts and Mamadou Thiam put the Reds in control in the first 15 minutes before Ben Reeves made a game of it in the second half.

But the Reds held on to climb above their opponents in the table and up to fourth.

They enjoyed a perfect start as they took a fourth-minute lead when Thiam teed up Potts to smash an unstoppable shot past Jed Steer.

Steer had to be alert to save Cameron McGeehan's 25-yard drive, but he could do nothing about Thiam's effort in the 14th minute.

The attacker drilled a shot from distance into the left-hand corner as the Addicks were shell-shocked.

Reeves made it a nervy final 15 minutes when he produced a clinical finish but the visitors were unable to force an equaliser.
