Last updated : 05 September 2007 By Rob Miles (barnsley Boy)
Summer misfits Miguel Mostto and Rohan Ricketts finally hit form in a Red shirt by scoring in a 6 goal thriller between Barnsley and Bradford's Reserve sides.

The scoreline at half time was amazingly 0-0 but in the second half the game really came to life.

£400,000 Peruvian striker Mostto who has so far failed to fit in, in the first team got the ball rolling on 51 minutes.

Most recent recruit Jamal Campbell-Ryce played a lovely one-two with Dwayne Mattis before crossing for Mostto to head home.

Bradford fought back though in the 64 minutes.

Kyle Letheren totally misjudged Luke Morgan's cross allowing Medley a simple chance at the back post.

And four minutes later Bradford, having been dominated for large periods went into a shock lead.

Medley this time delivering a ball from the byeline which Leon Osborne turned in at the second attempt.

Barnsley were level within 5 minutes as Rhys Meynell slipped past Bradford keeper Convey and with 5 minutes remaining Barnsley forged ahead again.

A great cross from Luke Potter was headed home by Ricketts and Mattis put the icing on the cake at the death as he nodded home Meynell's cross.
