Barnsley suffered their biggest defeat of the season so far after a 5-0 loss at the hands of Huddersfield during the weekend. Manager Danny Wilson was a disappointed man after the encounter, but he said that Barnsley could have scored at least four goals on any other day. Their defeat would not have been surprising by taking a look at the table, as the club are rooted to the bottom of the table. However, Wilson feels that they provided a good account of themselves in the match and they were unlucky not to come away with something to show for their endeavour.
Wilson said that the first 30 minutes was exceptional from his team. However, Barnsley found themselves two goals down at half-time, as Danny Ward and Keith Southern found the back of the net for Huddersfield. A penalty and two more goals in the second half completed the rout, but Wilson feels that the game could have finished with a much different outlook had Barnsley taken their opportunities in the first half. Once the goals started going in, their heads dropped and they were unable to recover.
Even though Barnsley are just two points away from safety, things are starting to get desperate for Wilson and his team as they continue to remain in the bottom three.
“For 30 minutes we were excellent and I thought this was our day to really put our foot down on the gas and we did for 30 minutes. We should have had two or three goals, maybe four goals, in that period of time. We had some great chances, but we didn’t find the back of the net with any of them. As a group, defensively, that was poor. Second half – we were never in it. The rest of the game was poor,” Wilson told www.sublimeshot.com.
