Barnsley reached the FA Cup fifth round for the first time in eight seasons following a slender win over Championship leaders Norwich City yesterday.

Valerien Ismael’s team went into the fourth round tie on the back of three consecutive league defeats but got their campaign back on track with a 1-0 victory against the Canaries at Oakwell.
