He later died from his injuries at the Northern General Hospital on 24 October, 2012.
30 year old Stephen Rodgers, originally from Thurnscoe, has been sentenced to 21 years for manslaughter.
23 year old Nathan Wingfield, originally from Rotherham has been sentenced to 20 years for manslaughter and five years imprisonment for robbery.
Both men pleaded guilty to manslaughter on Monday, 11 March at Sheffield Crown Court and Wingfield also pleaded guilty to robbery.
Detective Superintendent Matt Fenwick said:
"This is a tragic case where a mother, daughter, brother and father have lost a loved one.
"This case shows exactly how criminal acts, particularly involving the use of violence, can go so very wrong.
"I would like to thank the Woodhead family and the local community for the strength and support that they have shown through this difficult and traumatic time."
