Conor Hourihane: Scored a screamer

Conor Hourihane: Scored a screamer

Conor Hourihane scored the pick of the goals as Barnsley stretched their unbeaten run to three games with a 4-1 win over Gillingham.

The Irish midfielder lashed home his second goal in two games midway through the first half before strikers Sam Winnall and Devante Cole put the hosts in complete control.

Gills captain Danny Kedwell tapped home after his second-half penalty was saved by Adam Davies but Dale Jennings' strike ended any hopes of a fight back.

Barnsley midfielder Luke Berry wasted a close-range header early on prior to Hourihane's fine left-footed strike into the right corner.

Gillingham winger Jermaine McGlashan saw his low effort saved by Davies at the near post in the 29th minute before Winnall rose highest to head Reece Brown's cross into the right corner for his first Barnsley goal.

Substitute Cole, on loan from Manchester City, side-footed Joe Dudgeon's centre in off the underside of the bar three minutes after replacing Leroy Lita before Kedwell netted his fourth of the season after Davies denied his spot-kick.

Jennings, another substitute, slotted into the bottom right corner after Hourihane's free-kick deflected to him before Tykes striker Kane Hemmings saw a close-range effort come back off a post.
