Plymouth's Championship clash at home to Barnsley was abandoned after 58 minutes because of a waterlogged pitch with the hosts trailing 4-1 at Home Park.

Argyle led through Karl Duguid but they capitulated thereafter as goals from Daniel Bogdanovic, Emil Hallfredsson, Adam Hammill and Ryan Shotton put the Tykes in total control at the break.

However, referee Gavin Ward decided the pitch was unsafe due to surface water which had players struggling to keep their footing and stopped play 13 minutes into the second half.

Plymouth led after nine minutes when Alan Judge crossed from the right flank and Duguid arrived to fire home right-footed from six yards out.

Three minutes later, Tykes midfielder Hugo Colace engineered the space to deliver a dangerous cross from the right flank and Bogdanovic arrived to plant a firm header into the net from six yards.

The visitors forged ahead in the 16th minute when Hallfredsson was afforded the time and space to rifle a vicious left-footed shot into the top corner from 20 yards.

Barnsley claimed a third in the 24th minute when Hammill collected a pass from Hallfredsson on the edge of the 18-yard box and blasted a low right-footed shot into the bottom corner.

The visitors refused to let up and were rewarded again in the 31st minute when on-loan Stoke defender Shotton met Hammill's corner and fired into the net before the game was abandoned.
