Nyatanga earns Tykes victoryBirthday boy Lewin Nyatanga's late goal saw Barnsley beat Millwall 3-2 at The Den and record back-to-back victories in Sky Bet League One.Fred Onyedinma's first senior goals for the Lions looked to have rescued a point for the hosts, who had battled back from trailing 2-1 after goals from Barnsley's Sam Winnall and summer signing Alfie Mawson.But defender Nyatanga, celebrating his 27th birthday, popped up deep into injury time to nod home Conor Hourihane's delivery and snatch the win for the visitors.The first goal had come against the run of play after 26 minutes through 18-year-old Onyedinma's finish before Winnall equalised for the visitors in the 38th minute, heading home Marley Watkins' cross.Mawson found the bottom right-hand corner after a poor defensive clearance after 56 minutes before Onyedinma headed home a second.But the final word went the way of Barnsley as their never-say-die attitude was rewarded when Nyatanga leapt highest to head the ball into the net and kick start the birthday celebrations
