Barnsley 4-0 Notts County

Four second-half goals gave Barnsley victory at home against Notts County in the FA Cup first round.

County started quickly and had a goal disallowed inside two minutes, as Rob Milsom's in-swinging free kick found Elliot Hewitt who glanced his header past Adam Davies, only to be judged offside.

The home side then began to dominate and controlled much of the first half, creating the best chances.

It took Barnsley until the 48th minute to open the scoring, Cameron McGeehan latching onto a loose ball and floating a pass over the defence to Cauley Woodrow, who volleyed brilliantly past Fitzsimons.

The Reds doubled their lead shortly after when Brad Potts was released down the right and picked out Zeki Fryers who smashed his left-footed shot in.

Potts then turned scorer when Kieffer Moore squared the ball across the box for him to tap home in the 77th minute.

Barnsley continued their dominance and made it 4-0 in the 81st minute. Mamadou Thiam crossed to find an unmarked Moore at the far post who headed in.
