Barnsley 2-0 Coventry: Post Match Reaction

“Another win, another clean sheet and another good performance.”

"From start to finish, the best thing I can say, and credit to the players is the game plan. We worked on it yesterday, two different shapes and two different formations which they carried out to perfection.

“In terms of the significance and what people are talking about, and the profile of the game you have to say yes, it’s my biggest win. Everyone has been talking about it and we have been chasing a team in sixth place, and we could go level with them so it means a lot, but for us it’s another win on a good run.

“Our job now is assessing injuries from this game then looking to beat Walsall! That’s it, that’s as far as we can look. But we will reflect on the performances and why we’re winning, what we are doing well, then selecting the best things and the things we need to work on for the next game.

“The mind-set we’ve got we are continually driving forward and trying to get better. We’re winning more games more than we lose.”

“Sam Winnall rocked his ankle, he turned it over which wasn’t great, and the way the game was going we thought we’d change the shape and go with the other system we’d been working on, so it became a tactical switch to go to a 4-3-3.

“We felt we would be able to press the centre-backs higher with our wingers, and make sure Coventry couldn’t cut us open. Credit to the players again because they have made it happen.”
