Match Comments
The goal has lifted the home side and are pressing for an equaliser.

Jason Scotland gives the Swans a lifeline quickly after Barnsley's second goal, scoring with an excellent strike from 20 yards.

It's a dreadful start to the second half. Macken opens the scoring for Barnsley before 7 minutes later, Ashley Williams his guilty of hand ball and concedes a penalty. Campbell-Ryce scores from the spot and it's a mountain to clime now for the Swans, who are currently struggling.

20:19 Martinez is forced to make a change as Gower goes off injured and is replaced by Pintado.

"Swansea second best at the moment, they can't get their passing game together." - Radio Wales commentator.

20:00 De Vries is forced to make his first excellent save from the match after a good save from Mostto's shot.

19:56 Swansea City make a decent start to the game and have had 1 great chance to opening the scoring but Tudur-Jones' shot from 10 yards out was blazed over.
