Last Updated: 27/04/19 7:58pm
Barnsley came back from a goal down to continue their push for automatic promotion from Sky Bet League One with a 2-1 win over Blackpool courtesy of goals from Cauley Woodrow and Liam Lindsay.
Barnsley dominated possession early on, but the away side took the lead in the 15th minute. A cross into the Barnsley box was delicately flicked on by Armand Gnanduillet to find an unmarked Harry Pritchard whose shot deflected in off Jordan Williams.
Barnsley's deserved equaliser came in the 40th minute when intricate play on the edge of the box allowed Woodrow to turn and fire his shot low into the bottom corner.
Mamadou Thiam came close shortly after the break when his touch inside teed up a right-footed shot which was tipped over by Christoffer Mafoumbi.
The Tykes took the lead when Cameron McGeehan's corner found Lindsay at the front post and he finished with a glancing header just before the hour.
Woodrow nearly grabbed his second when Thiam's cross found him in the box, but his shot was dragged wide.
