Barnsley have survived relegation from the Championship for another year following their creditable 2-1 one over Plymouth at Home Park.

Norwich City's defeat at the hands of Charlton means the Tykes have beaten the drop on the final day of the season, regardless of their comeback against Plymouth who were already safe.

Gary Sawyer's header opened the scoring on 11 minutes to set up a frantic relegation scrap. Honours were even at the break though as on loan midfielder Adam Hammill levelled for Barnsley on 34 minutes to send the Tykes on their way to safety.

Jamal Campbell-Ryce then put the away side into the lead just one minute into the second half to send the away fans delirious, with survival well within sight.

Simon Davey's side held out their lead until the final whistle, leapfrogging Plymouth into 20th position in the process.

I'm over the moon, we're staying up but it's bitter sweet that we've had to rely on other teams failure to keep us there. Come on Barnsley you are better than this, it's another year with my heart in my mouth over being relegated. Just for once can't we finish mid table?

Looking forward to some interesting games next season, long term premiership teams like Newcastle coming to Oakwell.
