Barnsley   5 - 2   Leeds United

Barnsley v Leeds

Barnsley 5-2 Leeds United

Barnsley tore through Leeds with a rampant second-half performance that takes them seventh in the Championship.

Jonny Howson's crisp strike put Leeds ahead on three minutes before debutant Garry O'Connor fired the Tykes level.

Jim O'Brien pounced on a loose ball to put the hosts in front before Diego Arismendi's finish and Neil Collins' own-goal put the match beyond Leeds.

Adam Hammill capped a fine game with a fierce shot for the fifth with Davide Somma's late goal little consolation.

The visitors came into the game on the back of a three-match winning run and had threatened to keep up that momentum as Howson crashed home Neil Kilkenny's set-piece.

But Barnsley recomposed themselves and, after Arismendi had come close to equalising, O'Connor did so in clinicial style.

Hammill scampered through after an error from Fede Bassone and the ball eventually found its way across for the on-loan Birmingham striker to bury in the far corner.

Luciano Becchio was inches from restoring Leeds' lead shortly after the break but Bradley Johnson's cross proved a touch too strong and Simon Grayson's side found themselves behind seconds later.

Former Liverpool youngster Hammill was again Leeds' tormentor as he left Paul Connolly trailing before goalkeeper Shane Higgs blocked his advance.

The relief was only temporary however as O'Brien rolled home from little more than a yard as the ball spun free.

Higgs produced a pair of fine saves to deny Hammill and Jacob, but was then beaten by Arismendi's accuracy from an acute angle with 25 minutes to play.

Barnsley cantered away with the points as Hamill's swinging corner lured Collins into heading into his own net before the winger sent a shot of his own skimming past Higgs.

Somma rammed home from close-range but it did little to dampen the home fans' delight at Oakwell.
