Matty Pearson makes Championship debut

ACHIEVE client Matty Pearson made his Championship debut for Barnsley as they were beaten 1-2 at Oakwell by Ipswich Town.

Defender Pearson made his Tykes debut in a midweek League Cup victory over Morecambe, having joined manager Paul Heckingbottom’s side from League Two Accrington Stanley for an undisclosed transfer fee just days before.

Tom Bradshaw put the hosts in front on 15 minutes, but a series of fine saves by Ipswich Town’s Polish goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski denied them a second goal.

However, substitute David McGoldrick volleyed Ipswich level after 53 minutes and recent signing Martyn Waghorn fired a shot in off the post from Joe Garner’s pass on 70 minutes to take all three points for the visitors.
