Strong second string blow away York
Barnsley's Reserves grabbed a comprehensive victory over York City.
A strong second string side containing players such as Kayode Odejayi and Mounir El Haimour were too strong for their local counterparts.
Young Tyrone Crapper grabbed the first after a lung-busting run whilst Odejayi grabbed a morale-boosting goal by heading home a cross from El Haimour and Dominic Weston added a third.
Reds assistant manager Kelham O'Hanlon toldwww.barnsleyfc.co.uk:
"We did very, very well and it was a good positive performance and result. I thought the senior pros were excellent and showed a great attitude and our youngsters played very well against a good, young York side.
"We scored three very good goals to win the game. Tyrone Crapper got the first after bursting into the box to finish a great move and it was great to see because he had an excellent game in midfield for us; Kayode Odejayi grabbed a good striker's goal after a great cross from Mounir El Haimour and Dominic Western created and scored a fine third.
"We scored three good goals and kept a clean sheet as well which is always a positive. We won the game really in the first half and scored twice after playing at a high tempo. We went at York in the first half and that was always going to be difficult to maintain for the full game. The lads stuck at it in the second half and to get all three points was very pleasing.
"They all came though it well. Reuben (Noble-Lazarus) got a whack in the first half but played on for 85 minutes and it will have done him a lot of good to get another game under his belt at reserve team level".
