Chris Dagnall scored his first league goals for Barnsley inside two second half minutes as they won their local derby 2-0 against Leeds at Oakwell on Saturday.
Dagnall opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 62 minutes after he was brought down by Sam Byram following an excellent jinking run then doubled the lead two minutes later with a superb finish after a fine throughball from Marlon Harewood.
Barnsley thoroughly deserved the victory after producing a fine performance against very poor visitors. The Reds hit the post through Harewood and Cranie in the first half and forced Kenny into several good saves.
It was Barnsley's first home win in the Championship since September 1 and dragged them off the bottom of the table. Director Don Rowing announced before the game that the club would appoint a new manager on Sunday and caretaker David Flitcroft has improved his claim to the job with this result.
The strikeforce of Harewood and Dagnall were superb while every player put in a great shift. The only downside was an injury to Jim O'Brien which saw him stretchered off after 30 minutes, although he has since Tweeted saying it is just a dead leg.
