Speaking after the 2-0 defeat to Millwall at the New Den last night, Mark Robins said that he wants to bring in a couple more players to help the squad through the tough fixture list ahead.
The Reds were defeated by Millwall who sat in 10th position before the game and never really got going until the second half.
Robins told the BBC: 'I think we are a better side but we didn't have the energy to get back at them. We looked flat. I think there were one or two tired legs.'
Robins' Barnsley faced Millwall in their third league fixture in six days, having taken 4 points from matches with Swansea City and Doncaster Rovers prior to this encounter at the New Den.
Robins continued: 'The third game in six days is a step too far. That's the frustration, you don't want it to be that way. We spoke about 40 points and about 10th in the league to try and focus on that but it didn't happen.'
Barnsley could have leapfrogged Millwall into 10th spot with a victory in this game in hand but instead handed the initiative to teams around them, some of whom now have games in hand on them instead.
Four points in their last three games has seen the Reds rise from 16th to 13th in the league table, looking increasingly more locked into 'mid-table mediocrity' which notably the travelling contingent were somewhat vocal about at last night's game.
Robins was disappointed for the supporters: 'It's hugely disappointing because of the strides we'd made in the previous two games. We can't complain about the result. It wasn't good enough. We know it wasn't good enough. The supporters have travelled there and haven't seen us start the game. They must have been absolutely, desperately annoyed with the journey they've made.'
The Barnsley boss did however make it clear that he is still looking to do business in the transfer market, having recently released Jeronimo Neumann: 'I'll turn my attention to that over the weekend and see what we can do. We need some help there's no doubt about it.'
