Instant Reactions - Barnsley v Wolves (13/1/18)

Instant Reactions - Barnsley v Wolves (13/1/18)

Following today's clash between Barnsley and Wolverhampton Wanderers, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Barnsley hosted Wolverhampton Wanderers at Oakwell on Saturday January 13, with both sides playing out a scoreless draw.

The visitors did have the ball in the back of the net twice through Helder Costa and Diogo Jota but both efforts were chalked off with offside flags and the woodwork came to the hosts rescue in the second half, but a resolute Barnsley held on for the point and ended Wolves' goalscoring away run that stretched back to the end of September.

Wolverhampton Wanderers:

Ruddy, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Saiss, Neves (N'Diaye 90), Douglas, Costa (Cavaleiro 65), Bonatini (Mir Vicente 73), Jota.


Gibbs-White, Enobakhare, Hause, Norris.

Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Keith Stroud blew the final whistle, Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom explained.

'I'm pleased with the performance and I enjoyed the game if I'm honest. I thought it was really competitive, really high tempo, I thought we played well and you can see why they're top of the league. We've had four clean sheets in the last six or seven in the league, which is the right way to go about it.'

Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo in his comparative interview explained.

'If there was going to be a winner it would be Wolves. We didn't concede anything to Barnsley. Teams are trying to adapt their shape to our idea. That was not the case of Barnsley. Paul knows what he's doing. There are a lot of teams adapting but that makes you grow. It's a challenge knowing that you have to find solutions - grow and play better.'
