Manchester United pair Ben Pearson and Joe Rothwell featured for Barnsley on Tuesday night, as the Tykes left it late to grab a 3-2 victory over Millwall.

Rothwell replaced Pearson with seven minutes remaining in the clash at The Den, which Barnsley won thanks to Lewis Nyatanga's stoppage time winner.

Pearson is in his second season on loan at Barnsley, having made 22 appearances there in 2014/15, while Rothwell has featured in all three of Barnsley's League One matches since arriving from Old Trafford.
