Barnsley 0-2 Blackpool: Oliver Casey scores Tangerines first goal

Owen Dale places Blackpool mid-table ahead

Oliver Casey scored his first goal for Blackpool as they racked up more misery on Barnsley’s season with a win at Oakwell.

Casey netted a free-kick in the second half after Owen Dale gave the visitors a first-half lead for his second goal of the season.

Blackpool move Preston to 15th in the Championship with a fifth away win of the campaign.

It was a 26th defeat of the season for bottom-of-the-table Barnsley, whose relegation to League 1 was confirmed on Friday.

Sparse home support saw their side fall behind shortly before half-time as Dale took the ball from James Beesley into the left channel, cut inside and found the far corner.

The win was sealed midway through the second half when Kenny Dougall’s free kick found its way to Casey, and the 21-year-old defender stabbed into the net.

Beesley could have made it three but hit the post from a tight angle after Jerry Yates played the ball around the goalkeeper.

Barnsley Under-23 manager Martin Devaney has taken charge of the hosts after head coach Poya Asbaghi ​​left the club on Sunday.

It saw Remy Vita blast an early chance at the near post and Cauley Woodrow’s deflected shot knocked down by Blackpool keeper Chris Maxwell in the second half.

Matty Wolfe nearly netted a goal 10 minutes from time but his long-range effort hit the bar.
