Baldock double sends Brighton back to top

Sam Baldock celebrates after scoring the opening goal at Oakwell

Brighton returned to the top of the Championship as Sam Baldock's two goals gave them victory at Barnsley in Chris Hughton's 100th league game in charge.

Striker Baldock placed a clever half-volley over Tykes goalkeeper Adam Davies early in the second half before slotting home Anthony Knockaert's pass.

Barnsley had strong penalty appeals waved away in the first half when Lewis Dunk appeared to handle the ball.

Marley Watkins also saw two shots saved and Adam Hammill blazed over.
