Barnsley   1 - 0   Watford

Barnsley 1-0 Watford

Barnsley 1-0 Watford

An Emil Hallfredsson strike fired Barnsley to a second straight win as the Tykes closed in on a play-off spot.

Watford almost took the lead on the counter-attack when Jon Harley put a header wide from Lloyd Doyley's cross.

Barnsley improved in the second half and, after Nathan Doyle had struck the post from 25 yards, Hallfredsson raced on to Filipe Teixeira's pass to score.

The home side played the last 10 minutes with 10 men after Ryan Shotton was sent off for a foul on Doyley.


Barnsley manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"I thought we played some decent football. In the second half we passed the ball better.

"Conditions were difficult and obviously Watford have come and made it difficult for us to play.

"We're up to ninth place now and three points from sixth, so draw your own conclusion from that."

Watford boss Malky Mackay:

"I've looked at it on video five or six times and there was no push by Danny Graham. It was clear that he headed the ball and there was no pushing.

"I thought we deserved more than we got out of the game. We picked up from where we left off against Sheffield United.

"I thought we gave a good account of ourselves. We knew it was going to be a tough game."
