Half-Time Report: Barnsley three up against Middlesbrough

Barnsley score twice just before half time to move into a 3-0 lead against Middlesbrough.

Barnsley are beating Middlesbrough 3-0 in this afternoon's Championship match.

Lukas Jutkiewicz had an early left-footed shot from the right side of the box, but his effort went wide of the post.

The first 15 minutes was devoid of any craftsmanship, although Boro did well to restrict Barnsley with a high pressing game.

Jacob Butterfield and Dean Whitehead both won free kicks in the opposition's half, but neither threatened Jack Butland's goal.

Paddy McCourt had a rare effort midway through the first half, but could only drag it wide.

It was 1-0 moments later as McCourt managed to find the back of the net from seven yards after beating five Boro defenders.

However, that was his last contribution to the match as he was replaced by Jim O'Brien because of injury.

That did not stop Barnsley, though, as Chris O'Grady grabbed two goals in two minutes, one of which was a penalty, to give his side a commanding lead.
