    braces in back-to-back games for Barnsley, including the last two goals of the
    tie.OLLIES PREDICTIONI was blown away by Barnsley on Saturday - they were
    sensational and in Sam Winnall they could have the best player in League One.
    Not only is he a goal machine, he can also set up his team-mates too. The way he
    pulled the ball back for Adam Hammill to force the own-goal was equally as
    impressive as his two goals. Walsall were tactically all over the place. They
    tried to overplay and didnt suss the impact of the home crowd and the situation
    - sometimes you have to be more cautious. They now have a mountain to climb
    against a Barnsley team who have shown automatic promotion form in the league
    since Christmas.OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds 11/1) Get a Sky Sports Day

    Langhamer. LEXINGTON, Ohio -- Simon Pagenaud didnt take the lead for good until
    the 85th of 90 laps when Conor Daly pitted for fuel, The Frenchman really won
    the race Sunday on a restart on Lap 66.Pagenaud outraced Team Penske teammate
    Will Power to move ahead of him for good, and ended up beating the Australian by
    4.16 seconds in the Honda Indy 200.The pair nearly came together on the last of
    the 13 turns on the 2.2-mile at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course during after the
    race went back to green, but both escaped.Were battling for a race, were
    battling for a championship, Pagenaud said.Power said he was cognizant that he
    was going against a teammate.In the last turn if I hadnt backed off we would
    have crashed, he said. At that point I knew it was a teammate. (Team owner Roger
    Penske) would have been pretty made f we had taken each other out.Pagenaud took
    the lead at the end when Daly gave up a 10.5-second advantage over Pagenaud to
    make a fuel stop. Even with a 4.8-second stop, Daly fell to eighth and ended up
    sixth.Carlos Munoz was third and 2015 race winner Graham Rahal was fourth, 7.01
    seconds.A fourth victory of the season and the eighth of his IndyCar career
    increased Pagenauds series points lead to 58 over Power. Pagenaud knew his
    advantage would have been down to 38 if Power had won, so he took a chance on
    the restart.I didnt have much to lose, Pagenaud said. It was my time.Power
    blamed himself for letting Pagenaud pass him.I just blew it, Power said. I
    needed to do a much better job on that restart. It was not the greatest. I was
    quite slow. I put myself in the position to allow him to have a shot. When you
    have a shot, of course, youre going to go for it.Daly, looking for his first
    victory, took the lead when the race went to caution on Lap 61 when Jack
    Hawksworth went into the tires. During the pit stops Mikhail Aleshin, who led
    for 33 laps, pulled in front of Josef Newgarden and was ordered to the rear of
    the field.Charlie Kimball had a great restart from the fifth position only to
    immediately drop back when he went off the coursse.ddddddddddddIndyCarFive-time
    Mid-Ohio winner Scott Dixon left the race after 14 laps following a collision
    with Helio Castroneves in Turn 2. Dixon returned on lap 60 and finished last of
    the 22 cars to drop a spot to fifth in the points standings.Dixon was gaining on
    Castroneves but Castroneves kept the inside line and Dixon could not around him.
    Dixons left tire popped and the suspension was damaged.We were racing hard
    there, Dixon said. I was alongside. He kept edging over and there was nowhere to
    go. We made pretty good contact.Castroneves remained in the race and finished
    15th.The race capped a good weekend for Pagenaud, who won his sixth pole of the
    season, first at Mid-Ohio, with a course record time of 1 minute, 3.87 seconds
    (127.271 mph) around the 13-turn, 2.258-mile course Saturday during the final
    qualifying session.WHOS HOT: Power has three firsts and two seconds in the past
    five races and increased his points lead over third-place Castroneves, another
    Team Penske driver, to 53.WHOS NOT: Despite his recent success, Power has only
    four races to catch Pagenaud for the series championship. Its tough for me now
    but absolutely its possible, Power said.CLOSE IN MANY WAYS: Rahal grew up 60
    miles from the course in Columbus and wore an Ohio State themed fire suit from
    head-to-toe but couldnt pull out a repeat win despite a late surge that took him
    from 17th to one spot off the podium. Im a little bit frustrated we couldnt be a
    little better, he said. I wanted to win today but I think we got the absolute
    most out of this thing.FEELING BETTER: Pagenaud battled a bad back all weekend.
    Asked post-race how he was feeling he said it hurt most breaking and turning on
    Turn 9 but, It doesnt matter now because we won.NUMBERS: Aleshin led the most
    laps followed by Pagenauds 23. There were seven lead changes and two cautions
    for 10 laps.UP NEXT: Pocono Raceway. Ryan Hunter-Reay is the defending race
    winner. ' ' '
