Barnsley netted twice in the last five minutes to secure a 2-0 win at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
The Reds had hit the crossbar three times before Callum Styles rifled an excellent shot into the top right corner. 
Cauley Woodrow, who had hit the crossbar twice, made it 2-0 two minutes later to secure a deserved fourth win in five under Valerien Ismael. 
It was also fourth clean sheet in five games for the head coach whose side are 13th in the Championship table with 16 points from 12 games. 
Valerien Ismael made no changes to the side that won 2-0 at Derby County two weeks ago before the international break, but Romal Palmer and Jordan Williams were back on the nine-man bench after recovering from injury. 
Barnsley almost took the lead in the 12th minute with what would have been one of the best goals in their recent history. 
Cauley Woodrow produced a superb backheel flick near halfway to Alex Mowatt who passed it on the Conor Chaplin who found Woodrow again and the top-scorer's 25-yard curling effort crashed onto the bar. 
It was then Chaplin's turn to hit the crossbar three minutes later as he turned on the right of the box and unleashed an effort from 18 yards which cannoned off the underside of the bar then Callum Styles' rebound was blocked. 
Forest then had two good chances within a few minutes. Firstly, Miguel Guerrero went clean through on goal after a poor header by Michal Helik but was denied one-on-one by the legs of Jack Walton. Then a left-wing cross by Anthony Knockaert was met at the back post by Joe Lolley but his close-range shot was blocked by Styles.
Guerrero missed another huge chance in the 38th minute when, after Forest had two attackers through on goal with just Mads Andersen defending, Lolley passed to the Spaniard but his 15-yard shot when clean through was very weak and saved by Walton.  
Barnsley spent much of the last half an hour of the first half defending as Forest had a succession of corners. But the Reds were the better side in the second half. 
Barnsley almost scored four minutes after the break when Styles ran onto an excellent Chaplin pass on the left of the box and sent in a powerful cross which Dominik Frieser looked certain to head in five yards out but did not connect properly and sent it wide. Woodrow's backheel from a low Callum Brittain cross was cleared near the line by Cyrus Christie.
Lyle Taylor's header from a right-wing Christie cross was then well-saved by Walton who dived full-length to his right to push it away.  
Ismael took off Matty James and Frieser on 62 minutes for Luke Thomas and Herbie Kane, who curled a 25-yard free-kick just wide of the top left corner with his first touch. 
The visitors' bar was struck for the third time on 72 minutes when, after a fine team move involving Chaplin and Thomas, Woodrow was played in on the left of the box but his ten-yard shot crashed against the underside of the bar. 
Ismael brought on Victor Adeboyejo and Clarke Oduor with ten minutes remaining. 
The two latest substitutes combined on the left to get the ball to Woodrow inside the penalty area on the left and he laid it back to Styles who fired into the top right corner from 15 yards. It was his first Oakwell goal but Forest complained that Adeboyejo had taken it out of play. 
It was 2-0 two minutes later when Callum Brittain skipped past a challenge on the right wing and squared to Woodrow who steered the ball into the bottom left corner from ten yards out for his first league goal from open play since February.

AS IT HAPPENED
  •  
  • 3:04pm
    GAME UNDERWAY
  • 3:04pm
    1 Barnsley have a corner in the first minute but it is headed clear
  • 3:08pm
    A pretty even first five minutes with neither side creating a chance so far. A few sloppy passes by the Reds when trying to attack
  • 3:11pm
    9 Callum Styles wins a good tackle for the second time in as many minutes, passes forward to Frieser but the Austrian's pass into the box is poor and to no one
  • 3:12pm
    10 Brittain and Chaplin are combining well on the right. This leads to a cross by Chaplin which is deflected into Frieser's path and he has a shot saved one on one but the flag is up for offside
  • 3:13pm
    12 Cauley Woodrow bends a shot from 25 yards onto the crossbar!
  • 3:14pm
    That would have been a sensational goal as the move started with a fantastic back heel by Woodrow to Mowatt then Chaplin passed back to Woodrow whose effort just did not quite dip enough
  • 3:17pm
    15 Matty James' corner from the right is caught by goalkeeper Brice Samba
  • 3:18pm
    16 The Reds have hit the bar again! This time Conor Chaplin turns on the right of the box and shoots from just inside the area but it hits the underside of the bar then Styles' shot is blocked
  • 3:20pm
    18 Now a big chance for the visitors as Miguel Guerrero goes clean through but Walton makes a fine one on one stop. The follow up corner is cleared
  • 3:22pm
    20 Another big chance for Forest as a cross from the left is met five yards out by Joe Lolley and his powerful shot is kept out by, we think, Jack Walton, although it may have been a block by Styles
  • 3:24pm
    Halfway through the first half and it's been an entertaining match. Barnsley hit the bar twice but the visitors have just had two big chances
  • 3:30pm
    The game has settled down a little bit now but it's still been entertaining. Both sides will be disappointed not to be in the lead
  • 3:33pm
    31 Forest win a corner on the right. Knockaert takes. and Andersen heads clear
  • 3:35pm
    33 A brilliant touch sees Joe Lolley get between Andersen and Styles but Helik puts the ball out for a corner
  • 3:36pm
    34 The right-wing corner is headed towards goal by Yates but he is penalised for a foul on Walton
  • 3:37pm
    36 A Forest shot is deflected behind for another corner which is cleared by James
  • 3:38pm
    The visitors have had the better of the last ten minutes, with several corners. But they have not created a clear cut chance since Guerrero went clean through
  • 3:40pm
    38 Barnsley totally cut open as Forest have a two on one against Andersen. Lolley plays Guerrero through on goal but his very weak effort in the box is straight at Walton
  • 3:42pm
    Forest have been the better side since those two early shots against their bar. Barnsley will probably be happy to hang on until half-time at 0-0
  • 3:44pm
    42 Forest free-kick 30 yards from goal. Knockaert takes and Lyle Taylor heads but it is headed out by James
  • 3:45pm

    45 Knockaert's left-wing corner is half headed out by Andersen then Lolley's volley is well wide from just outside the box
  • 3:48pm
    HALF-TIME: Barnsley 0, Forest 0. The hosts hit the bar twice in the first 15 minutes through Woodrow and Chaplin but Miguel Guerrero has missed two big one-on-one chances with Walton saving both. Decent game overall.
  • 4:06pm
    SECOND HALF UNDERWAY
  • 4:07pm
    Both Walton and a Forest man are down in the Barnsley goalmouth after a cross whipped across the face of goal
  • 4:08pm
    Both players are up and will carry on
  • 4:10pm
    49 Nearly a goal for the hosts. Excellent pass into the box by Chaplin, Styles crosses from the left near the byline and Frieser's close-range header looks sure to go in but he doesn't get enough on it and it drifts wide
  • 4:14pm
    53 Now Brittain's cross from the right is nonchalantly back heeled by Woodrow eight yards out but Christie clears near the line
  • 4:16pm
    Barnsley have definitely been the better side in the first ten minutes of this half, getting on the ball a lot more than before the break and finding their front three in dangerous areas
  • 4:19pm
    59 Another good save by Walton, diving full length to his right to push away a Taylor header from a right wing cross
  • 4:22pm
    Double Barnsley change. James and Frieser replaced by Thomas and Kane
  • 4:23pm
    63 Kane's first touch is a 25-yard free-kick which he curls just wide of the top left corner
  • 4:28pm
    Two thirds through the game. It's even in terms of chances and periods of dominance.
  • 4:31pm
    Barnsley are shading this in terms of possession, and they are the side pushing more on the attack
  • 4:32pm
    72 Barnsley hit the crossbar for the third time! It's Woodrow again, he is played clean through by Chaplin after a really nice move but shoots against the bar from ten yards out on the left of the box

    Styles is now in central midfield with Oduor left wing back
  • 4:44pm
    84 Brittain misses a cross in the box and Lolley shoots from ten yard but Helik blocks bravely with his head for a corner
  • 4:45pm
    GOAL!
    Callum Styles with a wonderful strike!
  • 4:48pm
    He is some footballer. Forest think it went out for a goal kick but it was good build up by Adeboyejo then Woodrow who picked out Styles just inside the box and he smashed into the top right corner for his first goal at Oakwell
  • 4:48pm
    GOAL!
    Cauley Woodrow doubles the lead !
  • 4:49pm
    Excellent work by Brittain on the right, lays it on a plate for Woodrow to find the bottom right corner and get his first open play goal in the Championship since February
  • 4:51pm
    Four added minutes
  • 4:51pm
    Jordan Williams replaces Brittain
  • 4:55pm
