Football Scores

A resurgent Barnsley moved within two points of safety after they produced one of the shock football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. After winning just twice in their first 29 games, Barnsley has won four of their last eight games to pull themselves straight back into the relegation battle. Carlton Morris scored the opener in the 10th minute before Michal Helik doubled their advantage in the 21st minute. Both goals were scored from Amine Bassi’s corners.

Managers Reaction 

Barnsley’s Poya Asbaghi: “This challenge would be my highest achievement, having come to a different country and a new league with just nine or 10 players available in January. But the only thing we have done with these good performances is given ourselves a chance. We haven’t accomplished anything but at least we have some sort of control over our destiny now going into the last games of the season. It was the start to the game that we wanted by pushing Bristol back and getting corners, which were decisive in us winning the game and you need to have that threat from set-pieces.”

Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “It’s the same group of players who played at the weekend and did very well, but our inconsistencies came back to haunt us and that remains a problem for us this season. There was no reason why we couldn’t perform in the same sort of way that we did against Blackburn, but the way we started was sloppy. We were also wasteful on the ball and were turning the ball over so many times when there was not a lot of pressure on us. It all comes down to concentration. We’ve got eight games to go now and the players have the opportunity to show me what they are made of before we look to make decisions concerning next season’s squad.”
