Barnsley let lead slip twice as they lost 4-2 at home to Fulham, with Egypt international Sam Morsy assisting twice for the Tykes. 

Barnsley XI: Davies; Yiadom; MacDonald; Roberts; Kpekawa; Kent; Morsy; Scowen; Hammill; Watkins; Winnall.

Fulham XI: Button; Odoi; Sigurdsson; Ream; Malone; Parker; Johansen; Cairney; Aluko; Piazon; Martin.

Barnsley got off to a dream start, as Morsy lobbed the ball over the defence to find Marley Watkins who finished well one-on-one in the fourth minute.

Both sides looked to find the all-important second goal, and it eventually came with eight minutes to half time, as Fulham made it 1-1 through on-loan Chelsea youngster Lucas Piazon.

There was still time in the first half for Morsy to provide another assist, as his through ball found Sam Winnall who cut it fine with his finish, which came off the post and into the back of the net.

The closing minutes of the first half would still come up with more goals, as Barnsley’s capitulation would begin with a Sone Aluko goal straight from kickoff.

As the second half begun, Scott Malone scored a fortunate goal in the first minute, making it 3-2 for Fulham as his cross somehow found the back of the net directly, which deceived Barnsley keeper Davies.

A Malone cross would again be Barnsley’s Achilles heel, this time finding the head of Scotland international Chris Martin before it found the goal in the 65th minute.

Soon after, Barnsley’s collapse was complete as Josh Scowen was sent off for a forceful challenge on veteran midfielder Scott Parker.

Morsy’s two assists earned him the Barnsley Man of the Match award, however it wasn’t enough to prevent Barnsley falling to their second straight loss, picking up just one point in their last five games.

The Tykes move down to 11th in the league, with their next game coming against title favourites Newcastle United.
