Sam Morsy seals League One title with Wigan
Egypt-eligible Sam Morsy, who was sidelined during Sunday’s game, collected the trophy with his side after the last game of the season. Latics had already secured automatic promotion to the Championship after their 4-0 victory over Blackpool last week.
The win was crucial for Barnsley as it helped them edge into the top six to book a League One play-off spot.
Will Grigg gave Wigan an early lead as he scored after 10 minutes, before Sam Winnall levelled the scoreline from a penalty conceded by Stephen Warnock who fouled Ashley Fletcher in the 33rd minute.
Just before the break, Winnall completed his brace as he gave his side the lead from a close range shot.
Nearly one hour into the game, a strike from Conor Hourihane made it 3-1 for Barnsley. Fifteen minutes to full time, Barnsley sealed the victory with a fourth goal; Josh Brownhill scored a free-kick into the top corner of the net.
Wigan midfielder Chris McCann was sent off the field after being shown a straight red card in the dying minutes of the game.
Despite the disappointment of the thrashing and McCann’s dismissal, Barnsley failed to kill Wigan’s party mood, as they celebrated the League One trophy as well as their immediate return to the second tier after last season’s relegation.
