Barnsley striker Sam Cosgrove has jokingly described his winning strike against Wycombe Wanderers as a ‘goal on the month’ contender, following the Tykes’ 1-0 win over the Chairboys.

The ex-Aberdeen and Plymouth Argyle forward scored his first goal for the South Yorkshire outfit on November 28 in peculiar circumstances, following an incident with Wanderers keeper, Max Stryjek.

Wycombe had the ball in the first minute of injury time inside their own box, and as referee Darren Drysdale ran back to the centre of the pitch, Cosgrove decided to chase down the Chairboys’ number one.

Stryjek quickly picked up the ball, and was then lightly nudged by the striker, before he fell to the ground.

He would then drop the ball which the Barnsley man took, before rounding Stryjek and tapping it into an empty goal.

Wanderers’ coaching staff and players remonstrated with the referee, which resulted in Stryjek picking up his fifth yellow card of the season, whilst left-wing back Harry Boyes was shown a red card for dissent.

His dismissal came from two bookable offences.

Some have argued that Stryjek was fouled as Cosgrove is clearly seen making contact with the keeper, but some have stated that the touch ‘wasn’t enough’ for the keeper to fall over and drop the ball.

The striker told Barnsley’s media team at full-time: “It's a strange one, I won't lie.

“I've literally just seen the video back and it's never a foul.

“You can say there is a bit of contact, but there's absolutely not enough for him to be going down, especially dropping the ball.

“I've been desperate for that first goal.

"I've felt I've had to contribute to games in other ways since I've been here.

“It's been a bit stop-start for myself through injuries but I was absolutely delighted to get that in and once the ball fell to me there was no chance I wasn't going to put it in the back of the net.”

"Goal of the month, potentially".

The loss means Wycombe are winless in seven in the league, with the Chairboys taking on Morecambe in the FA Cup at Adams Park this weekend.
