Barnsley 1-2 Ipswich

An early double from Jon Stead was enough to maintain Ipswich's play-off surge while sinking Barnsley towards the Championship relegation zone.

Stead fired his side ahead after eight minutes with a neat, low shot underneath Heinz Muller.

And he doubled their lead two minutes later, taking advantage of defensive confusion to bundle the ball home from close range.

Daniel Bogdanovic replied for Barnsley in the 47th minute with a calm finish.

Barnsley boss Simon Davey:

"We need a win badly. Home or away we need a win to put an end to this bad run.

"It was poor start, they were at us from the start, and we didn't cope with it.

"We were poor and weren't at the races in the first half. We have got to be focused and have full concentration from the start."

Ipswich manager Jim Magilton:

"I thought we were immense and we showed a great appetite to defend.

"We have got some momentum now so we just want carry on going and that starts with the next match.

"A lot of my players want to play in the Premier League but we need to show the desire week in-week out."
