Hecky Felt Sick After Wolves Heartbreak

Hecky Felt Sick After Wolves Heartbreak

Paul Heckingbottom thought Barnsley had collected the point he felt the Reds deserved when an added time equaliser was scored - only for Wolves to score an even later one to claim the points.

10 minutes from time Bright Enobakhare had put Wolves ahead.

The Reds didn't give up and Adam Jackson appeared to have rescued a point, which would have made it four from a possible six at Molineux after the Tykes' win last season, in stoppage time.

However, with almost the last kick of the game, Wolves loanee Alfred N'Diaye, who had set up the opener, put the hosts ahead again to leave them level on points with Leeds and Cardiff at the top of the Championship - we remain just above the bottom three.

This defeat was hard on the Reds for Heckingbottom who thought a point would have been fair but 'a moment of switching off' proved costly.

He was quoted post match by the BBC: 'I feel sick but that's why you play. You can't feel any more alive than those last 15 minutes.'

Adding: 'There wasn't too many things wrong from what we ask the players to do. We deserved a point and we thought we'd got it. It was just a moment of switching off. We were good with the ball and dominated large spells and their only threat was on the counter-attack.'
