Gillingham 2-1 Barnsley- Match Report

Last updated : 13 February 2016
Gills reach second place by beating BarnsleySixty seconds of second-half madness ended Barnsley's unbeaten run as goals from Dominic Samuel and Bradley Dack gave Gillingham a 2-1 victory over the Tykes.Reading loanee Samuel gave Gillingham the lead when showing tremendous pace to latch onto a Rory Donnelly through-ball after 25 minutes.And, two minutes before half-time, Marley Watkins had a chance to bring the scores level but opted instead to pass to strike partner Sam Winnall, which ultimately was the wrong decision.Just after the hour mark Gills switched off from a throw-in and an outstanding long-range volley from Conor Hourihane got Barnsley back into contention.Within a minute of the Reds equalising, however, Gillingham raced down the other end and a Donnelly shot was spilled by Adam Davies straight into the path of Dack.The Reds finished the stronger side with goalscorer Hourihane coming within inches of scoring a late equaliser in second-half stoppage time.But the Gills held firm to go second in the Sky Bet League One table
