Devante Cole
Devante Cole has now scored 12 goals for Barnsley this season

Barnsley scored two late goals to end the 23-game unbeaten streak of South Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday, who dropped to second place in League One.

The game started in the 10th minute when Mads Andersen slipped the ball to Devante Cole on the left side of the box and the striker defeated goalkeeper Cameron Dawson with a low angle shot.

James Norwood increased Barnsley’s lead two minutes later with a low shot from just outside the box after receiving the ball from Cole.

Wednesday reduced the deficit when a long ball from Will Vaulks found Michael Smith on the right and he overplayed a low cross that Lee Gregory turned in from close range just after the half-hour.

It was 2-2 when Barry Bannan’s ball over the top found Marvin Johnson down the left and his low cross was completed by Gregory – who completed his brace – from close range after 74 minutes.

When Luca Connell’s ball into the box caused problems for defenders on Wednesday, Max Watters fired past Dawson with seven minutes to go to put the hosts ahead.

Liam Kitching added a fourth goal in added time as Barnsley consolidated their fourth-place finish and extended their league unbeaten run to 12 games.
