Paddy McCourt scores in the 35th minute to hand Barnsley the lead in their Championship clash at the Amex Stadium against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Bottom-of-the-table Barnsley lead in their Championship clash with Brighton & Hove Albion at the break at the Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls started brightly as they controlled possession, but they could only muster half-chances as Ashley Barnes and David Lopez fired shots wide of the target from distance.

However, they came a lot closer minutes later when Craig Conway got the ball on the left and beat two defenders before cutting back on his right and shooting at goal but his shot was well saved by Jack Butland, who tipped the ball onto the bar.

Despite being on the back foot for most of the half, Barnsley took the lead in the 35th minute when Paddy McCourt played a one-two with Marcus Tudgay inside the area and fired a low shot past Tomas Kuszczak.
