Barnsley 1-0 Crystal Palace

Barnsley 1-0 Crystal Palace

Barnsley   1 - 0   Crystal Palace

Patrick McCarthy's own goal helped Barnsley win their first points of the Championship season as they held on for a hard-earned win over Crystal Palace.

The Tykes started brightly with Adam Hammill raiding down the left and Jay McEveley shaving the bar with a corner.

The deadlock was broken close to half-time when Diego Arismendi passed to McEveley, whose cross was turned in past keeper Julian Speroni by McCarthy.

Luke Steele saved from Neil Danns late on as battling Barnsley held on.

It was a welcome three points for a team without a victory in their first home league match of the season since beating Swindon 2-0 five years ago.

And despite a winless run of 11 Championship games, they began in lively fashion against the visitors, with Arismendi, on loan from Stoke, pulling the strings in the middle.

The Uruguayan headed tamely at Speroni before Barnsley had another chance to open the scoring, with Palace's Argentine keeper alert to punch a Kieran Trippier centre to safety.

The decisive strike may have been an own goal on 35 minutes, but the build-up was impressive, beginning with Hugo Colace winning possession in midfield as Arismendi and McEveley linked up nicely before the ball was deflected in.

McCarthy wasted a glorious chance to get back into his team-mate's good books with a header inside the box when unmarked.

The hosts pressed on for the killer blow and Nathaniel Clyne had to be at his best to keep the Eagles in the game when he slid in brilliantly to block Hammill's goal-bound shot.

Palace sparked into life in the closing stages but were unable to break down the resolute defence of a team back to winning ways.
