Loan watch: Conor Wilkinson makes sub appearance in Barnsley win

Forward joins action late on as Tykes record dramatic win away at Millwall

Conor Wilkinson was a 90th minute substitute for Barnsley as they secured a dramatic 3-2 victory at Millwall on Tuesday night.

Replacing Sam Winnall in stoppage-time, Wilkinson watched on as the Tykes scored a last-minute winner within a minute of his introduction - Lewin Nyatanga sealing the points with a well-placed header.

Fred Onyedinma had fired Millwall ahead midway through the first half, before goals either side of half-time from Winnall and Alfie Mawson turned the game on its head.

Onyedinma had appeared to earn the hosts a share of the points after he struck again in the 82nd minute with his second of the night, before Nyatanga's late winner.

There was still time for Wilkinson to pick up a booking, before almost adding to Barnsley's lead only to be denied by David Forde as Lee Johnson's side saw out the game to secure back-to-back wins.
