Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Thanks for joining us on the live blog tonight - it was an off-day from Leeds but Barnsley produced three quality goals to seal the three points. 

We'll be back on Wednesday, when Leeds welcome Nottingham Forest. 

In the meantime, thanks for joining us and enjoy the rest of your weekend. 

GARRY MONK: Leeds not clinical enough

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

I think men have to be clinical in both boxes and we weren't clinical enough defensively, where we have been before. We were off our usual standard but only by a small percentage. We will take it on the chin and the loss does cut a bit deeper when you've been winning. 

It doesn't help we've had to move players but that's no excuse. It will be good to get a few players out of the treatment room and back onto the pitch. 

The Championship is so competitive. It's not easy at all and there's a lot of physicality that goes into our game, as well as the football. It's near-on impossible to perform at those intensities every week, but we've been consistent. If we'd been a little more clinical in both boxes, we could be looking at a different result. 

Chris Wood in China? I have no idea where that one's come from. Speculation is speculation. Everyone who's here is committed. The way we're working has served us well and we will remain focused on that. We're disappointed for our fans and we want to do them justice on Wednesday. 

GARRY MONK: We were too reactive

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

The goals were our mistakes, so it's frustration more than anything. We expected a difficult ten minutes and for them to come out of the blocks - we got through that, counter attacked well and were in control until we conceded that goal. 

We haven't conceded goals from those situations for a while now. That changed a bit for the dynamic of the game and we were a little below our level, second half. We had a couple of clear opportunities we didn't take and a clear penalty denied for Kyle Bartley. 

I thought the game was quite scrappy and neither team got settled. We've just talked about making sure we get the right reaction. We were too reactive in the three goals when we're usually really good at anticipating - but we felt we had enough chances to take a point out the game. 

Leeds lost midfield battles

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

I think Barnsley took control of the midfield - the number of second balls they competed for, won and started attacks with... We're used to dominating games in that area but it didn't really happen today. 

These are the games where you prove how good you are. You had to take the Derby performance and prove it against a side full of guts and spirit today.

For Barnsley to score so late on in the first half - the team talk becomes completely different for both teams. 

Leeds off the pace

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

There are no easy results and no easy wins in this division - Leeds were off the pace today and didn't match Barnsley in certain areas. You give free kicks away in those kind of areas, against a team of players who can hurt you - what do you expect? 

It's good Leeds have a quick turnaround to put it right - a Leeds United team shouldn't score two and then lose the game. 

What went wrong for Leeds?

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

You have to know you're in a battle here - it was clear Barnsley were up for it, were aggressive and wouldn''t give you much space. You have to be up for the scrap first and play your football second. 

This should, in theory, have been a game for Hernandez, as he's clever and will find spaces, but you have to be a little bit more than that. He can't be a difference if the others aren't on it and don't open up those spaces.  

'Not a good evening at the office'

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Katherine Hannah

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

I think there's a feeling Leeds didn't play to their full potential tonight and that adds to it. Leeds never gave up and got lucky with the penalty shout - but they couldn't find the equaliser. 

5,214 Leeds fans came today and Leeds are fourth in table, Huddersfield having leapfrogged them following their 2-0 win over Ipswich today. We did say Barnsley would be tricky opponents and it was just not a good evening at the office. Leeds were just sloppy. 

Hernandez problematic

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Leeds didn't utilise Hernandez enough - our passing wasn't crisp enough, accurate enough. Sometimes, when you need that bit of stability in those central areas... He just looked off the pace. And maybe your flair players, your luxury players - maybe they're not the best in aggressive games like this. 

Maybe this is the kick Leeds needed, to show they can't win these kind of games if they're not playing well. Mistakes cost you and there were too many tonight. 

'Superb individual performances'

Derrick Parker, ex-Barnsley summariser

There were some very good individual performances there. Davies' handling from the high balls was good, Hourihane was impressive and the goals were great. 

The build-up for the first: it was obvious that was something they've worked on on the training ground. Kent has shown quick feet to turn and great bits of skill, and Hourihane's free kick was just quality. The whole team and the subs - a great performance from Barnsley. 

FULL TIME: BARNSLEY 3-2 LEEDS

Hamill sends a half-volley over the bar and the whistle blows straight after. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.

Ex-Leeds United striker

I'm not sure Leeds have anyone but themselves to blame for this. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

O'Kane sends it long for Dallas, but it shoots wide. Last attempt of the game, surely. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Barnsley throw by the left corner flag, from which they win a corner. Barnsley in no hurry to take it, mind. They take it short and it runs out for a goal kick. Green goes long but Hernandez struggles to get it away. O'Kane pelts it into the area but it goes out for an attacking throw. 

BARNSLEY SUB: WILLIAMS ON, ARMSTRONG OFF

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Bartley picks up for Leeds but Armstrong piles on the pressure and the Leeds man must knock it out for a throw. Dallas tries to bring it down but he's robbed by Hammill - Barnsley try and run down the clock, Coyle winning possession but running the ball out of play. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Kent does well to beat his man but Ayling holds him up. A Leeds cross comes into the box but Roofe fluffs his lines at the far post - it was a good chance to bring Leeds back on level terms with a volley, but he fires wide of the right post. 

BreakingFIVE ADDED MINUTES

Derrick Parker, ex-Barnsley striker

I thought Scowen did well to stop Wood there. I think Leeds have looked a little flakier and light at the back lately. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Leeds have done the hard work well but it's sometimes just been that they've lacked the final ball. Chris Wood crosses to Hernandez but Barnsley win a free kick for a foul on Scowen. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Leeds keep it well in the Barnsley half and Coyle lifts the ball into the area - Roberts clears as Bartley bravely stretches for the header. The build-up play was impressive there from Leeds, and the corner goes into the box and out for another corner. Barnsley clear and it goes back out for Hernandez - he gets it back in for ANOTHER CORNER. The delivery is poor, though, and Davies collects before launching Barnsley long.

Derrick Parker, ex-Barnsley striker

It's been a superb game to watch - so entertaining, both sides coming back and going for it. Still a lot for both sides to do, too. 17,817 in attendance tonight. 

BreakingLEEDS SUB: BRIDCUTT OFF, DALLAS ON

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Ben Davies goes down as Chris Wood tries to hook the ball back - Davies is clutching his mouth as he claims he's been caught by Doukara. Barnsley man down in the centre circle also - Marley Watkins just needing treatment for cramp. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Leeds do get a corner but Barnsley clear with relative ease. The chase is on as Ayling tries to win the ball back, but Armstrong fouls Ayling and is lucky to survive that one without a caution. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Roofe takes it to the goalline but it's a goal kick - you have to get something in those areas. You have Doukara, Wood in the box - get something! If that's a cross, a corner - you have men in there. Dallas could come on for Hernandez - he is struggling with his movement - and Roofe could go into that number ten role. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Watkins exhibits impressive pace to trouble Ayling again - it's out for a goal kick this time but Watkins has been a pain all day. He's got into dangerous areas, got in behind when he needs to. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Doukara and Wood link-up well, Doukara testing Davies with his shot but the ball falls a little too centrally. 

BreakingBARNSLEY SUB: BRADSHAW OFF, HAMMILL ON

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Manic stuff here as Watkins responds from a Leeds break. Bradshaw does well to turn as Leeds clear their lines, but Bartley risks the ball at the corner flag to surrender a corner for Barnsley. Hourihane looks to take the corner and Mike Dean has a word for shoving in the box. The ball goes in high to the back post and is headed back across goal, Ayling heading away before Green collects the ball back in. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Hernandez dinks the ball up for Leeds and Ryan Kent hooks it away, but Chris Wood closes down well to force the escape ball from Barnsley. The ball goes out of play but Wood got his man to turn. 

BreakingYELLOW - O'KANE

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

O'Kane with a sliding foul on Scowen a foot outside Leeds' area. He gives away the free-kick that Hourihane fires over, and Leeds break as Hernandez and Roofe work well. 

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

Barnsley 3-2 Leeds

O'Kane drives forward and Bridcutt finds Hernandez, but the ball runs out of play as Doukara tries to help the ball on. We have a real game on our hands here. 

BreakingGOAL: BARNSLEY 3-2 LEEDS - WOOD

Adam Davies dives the wrong way as Chris Wood smacks it home for his 18th of the season. No hesitation in the shot. 

BreakingBARNSLEY 3-1 LEEDS: PENALTY

Kent tries to clear it but the ball cannons off Mark Roberts' hand in the clearance as he tries to stop Chris Wood - Mike Dean rewards the penalty without hesitation, although Barnsley fans protest the handball was outside the box.

BreakingYELLOW - WATKINS

Barnsley 3-1 Leeds

Roofe is onside as Leeds put it over the top, but Watkins is late in the challenge and goes into the book as Dean blows immediately. 

Barnsley 3-1 Leeds

Barnsley try to get it back into the area but it's a Leeds free kick for a foul on Bartley from Armstrong. Green goes long, looking for Doukara, but Leeds clear and Ayling does well to hook it back up the park. 

Barnsley 3-1 Leeds

Adam Pope

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

This is not how I saw it today, at all. I was more concerned about last week, but this seems to be the one where Leeds haven't fired at all. 

Barnsley 3-1 Leeds

Hourihane volleys over the bar and Rob Green looks to hurriedly take it. Barnsley head it away and O'Kane and Berardi must race and run to close down and tackle. Berardi clears and Wood tries to bring it down on the edge of the penalty area, but the flag is up for offside.
