Will Britton gave the Lilywhites the lead after 14 minutes, but the Briggers came storming back to equalise through Jack Waldron before the break.

The Barnsley side’s player-boss Lee Morris put himself on after the interval and grabbed the winner midway through the second half.

Without the influential Courtney Warren the Lilywhites acquitted themselves well against Athletic, but just couldn’t conjure up an equaliser.

Having played four of the top seven sides in their opening five fixtures, Town now host Winterton Rangers tomorrow (Tuesday - KO 7.45pm).
