Barnsley welcomed Mansfield Town this afternoon for Bobby Hassell’s testimonial.
Barnsley: Davies, Bree, Mawson, Nyatanga, Smith, Scowen, Hassell, Rothwell, Pearson, Ball, Wilkinson. Subs: Templeton, Dibble, Maris, Roberts.
The Reds went ahead after seven minutes with a penalty by testimonial boy Hassell but the Stags quickly levelled.
The visitors scored again but Mawson set up Barnsley’s second with a measured ball over the top with Ball lobbing the ‘keeper from outside the area.
Reds went 3-2 up when a great cross from Bree landed in the path of the advancing Rothwell who prodded home from 12 yards.
Barnsley changed their line-up completely with Preece, Heckingbottom, Foster, Reid, Austin, Kay, Hassell, Howard, Shuker, Devaney and Nardiello coming on.
Then a delightful cross from Austin set up Nardiello to nod home the fourth at the far post with 82 played.
Mansfield pulled another back when Craig Westcarr turned Paul Heckingbottom to score.
