Barnsley have moved one step closer to an instant return to the Championship after beating Bolton 1-0 to progress into the League One play-off final.
A first half header from Liam Kitching proved to be the difference with the Tykes to now face Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday on May 29.
But unlike the Owls’ stunning comeback victory over Peterborough on Thursday night, there was no real drama with Barnsley in control of the match at Oakwell.
Michael Duff’s side went into the game on level terms having drawn 1-1 in last week’s first leg tie.
And they took the lead in the 24th minute when former Leeds academy defender Kitching headed in Luca Connell’s inswinging delivery.
The Trotters failed to create anything of note in the match, with boss Ian Evatt making a raft of changes ahead of the second half.

However it didn’t work as like Barnsley, they failed to have a shot on target after the break.
But it was the hosts that looked more dangerous, as they almost doubled their lead when Adam Phillips struck the crossbar with a dipping volley in the 66th minute.
The closest Bolton came to an equaliser was when they were handed a free-kick inside the box in the 75th minute when Harry Isted picked up a Mads Anderson backpass, but Aaron Morley blazed his effort high over the bar.
It proved to be the visitors’ last real opportunity, with Barsnley fans invading the pitch following the full-time whistle.
