Barnsley 2-1 Wolverhapton
David Flitcroft is targeting the teams above his Barnsley side after they moved out of the Championship relegation zone.
The Reds overcame an early deficit thanks to second-half goals from Chris Dagnall and Jacob Mellis, which eclipsed Bjorn Sigurdarson's early strike and extended a remarkable run of form under Flitcroft.
It was their eighth win out of nine and the sixth in a row in all competitions, and after looking dead and buried before Christmas Championship survival is now in their own hands.
With the way they are playing 39-year-old Flitcroft, who has been in charge since mid-January, is eyeing a further rise up the table.
"Getting out of the bottom three was the first objective I set," Flitcroft said. "Five or six wins on the spin and now we are out of it and we are looking up.
"It is the teams above that start thinking they are safe around Christmas.
"We have got the momentum. We keep applying more pressure on the bottom 10 and that is the aim."
