Sheffield Wednesday's Adam Reach and Harvey Barnes, of Barnsley, scored two of the most memorable goals seen at Hillsborough for some time in yesterday's 1-1 draw in the South Yorkshire derby.

Reach opened the scoring in the 34th minute, after taking the ball from Gary Hooper and cutting inside on his left foot. But the winger slipped as he let fly and the ball rebounded off his left foot, looping over the diving Adam Davies and into the Barnsley goal.

The goal was nothing less than the Owls deserved in a dominant first-half display, which also saw Tom Lees twice denied excellently by Davies and Kieran Lee hit the woodwork with a superb effort from long range.

But they paid for their profligacy in the second half when Harvey Barnes equalised with a superb curling effort.

“Today we put in a better performance and we had chances but we probably should have created more clear cut chances," Lees skipper.

“Then we got punished, but no one has a right to win, we’ve got to earn the right to win games. We need to get on a run and we need to start climbing the table.

“It’s up to the players, we’ve put ourselves in this situation and we’ve got to get ourselves out of it."

Paul Heckingbottom, the Barnsley boss, said of Barnes' sublime strike: "It was a great goal. We know he can do that and we're trying to add other things to his game like left-foot finishes and finishes from crosses.

"His goals are all the same and there is more to come from him."
