Barnsley 1-0 Ipswich
Barnsley began life after Andy Ritchie with a victory thanks to Grant McCann's 92nd-minute winner.

McCann had only joined Barnsley on loan from Cheltenham on Thursday but he quickly made his mark drilling a fine left-footed shot past Lewis Price.

Earlier in the second half, McCann had served notice of his shooting ability when he hit a fierce left-foot volley which flew inches over Price's bar.

Ipswich struggled in attack and rarely tested Barnsley keeper Nick Colgan.

  • Barnsley caretaker boss Simon Davey:
    "It was always going to be a hard game, and we were under no illusions about the task facing us - given our position in the league.

    "I said before the game that if we win and we win 'ugly', we'll take that.

    "I'd rather do that than pass a team off the park and lose. It was a sweet pearl to get the goal two minutes into injury-time, and I'm proud of them."

  • Ipswich boss Jim Magilton:
    "It was an awful game. There was no football played, and we were poor. We didn't pass the ball at all.

    "Neither goalkeeper had to make a save, and we fell asleep when it really mattered yet again.

    "Barnsley are fighting for their lives. We expected a backlash - and we got it. Ultimately, we lost the game because we switched off."
