Poor Start Again Costs Reds

Barnsley battled back to secure a point away at Burnley after going behind to Charlie Austin goal in the first ten minutes.

Cywka provided Barnsley with a late equaliser for a deserved point which will hopefully get the reds back on track.

Barnsley boss David Flitcroft reverted to four at the back following his failure to land a left wing back and it is something we must persist with until we can recruit the right personnel to play the system we prefer.

Flicker left Turf Moor frustrated after admitting there was only one team trying to win the game and Burnley were content to sit back throughout the entire second half.

Now back in the bottom three but with a game in hand, but no games are easy in this division and I would prefer the points in the bag rather than the game in hand.

Man City next up for Barnsley in the FA cup quarter final. It gives the reds a break from league action when most of their relegation rivals will be playing and another game to catch up on.

Now that we have gone three games without a win I hear many fans saying that the cup run is a distraction and we have too many games to play etc, etc.

I disagree. The cup run helped us with our run in the league. The team got in to the winning habit and the cup games helped this. I do believe we could have had less points on the board had we not had the cup games sandwiched between.

Having said that it is never ideal to have a back log of games when you are fighting for your lives but come the end of season when we are still a Championship side and we have reached the FA cup final even Tony won`t be able to moan.

Let`s get behind the super reds and back Flicker and the boys in every game for the rest of the season.

we aint doomed yet !!! i agree we must start better, but atleast we only conceded the 1. we were written off at xmas,as long as we are still in with a shout with 6 games left then we have a realistic chance.the injuries and Stones going have hit us badly,but we will turn it around, we are still fighting !!! regarding the cup, i think its a good thing, and if we can get back to winning soon, the lads would want games thick and fast. as before they couldnt wait for the next match.

does anyone know any site i can stream the match from on saturday, as iam in spain ? cheers.
torrox tyke
I don't know of any but I'll ask around. We are far from doomed and before the next league game I reckon he will have a left wing back in and maybe Stones as well.
chiefred
cheers chief`,i think if we get Stones and Dawson back we will be much stronger. fingers crossed !!!

As with most things, you need a fair amount of luck to go your way, last night it seems to have deserted the Tykes, but although I felt we needed a win against Burnley, a point might not be a disaster. The result of the cup game on saturday will be a good whatever happens... If we win, then it's Wembley here we come!...if we lose, then the lads can concentrate on the all important remaining games of the season, without any distractions and look back on a decent cup run that has brought in some much needed extra funds to the club.

Agreed that is the way to look at the cup run. Dawson back fit and Stones and a left back in and I would be confident we would stay up.
