Wilson Blasts Referee's Decisions In Away Loss

THE Reds slipped back to the bottom of the Championship on Saturday after a 1-0 defeat away at Bolton.

Ex-Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford cleverly finished by rounding Luke Steele before tapping into his empty net moments before half-time, but Barnsley should have come home with a point in the dying moments of the game.

Ryan McLaughlin was brought down in the box by Alex Baptiste in the 84th minute, but Barnsley's top-scorer Chris O'Grady couldn't convert the penalty.

His effort looked to have beaten Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, but instead the ball painfully hit the woodwork.

"I feel let down by some of the decisions that were made against us," said Danny Wilson, whose side now go into Tuesday's trip to Charlton knowing a loss could seal their relegation to League One.

"I was delighted with the lads' performance, though. They did ever so well. I think we deserved to win the game."

The Reds - who now have just five games to play - are five points adrift of Charlton who also have a game in hand.

Nothing to say is there. They lack the fire of last season it's been a slow death. The whole sorry affair of this season is the captiulation of years of lack of ambition from the board. I can't blame Danny or Flicker, they work with what they have.

I could go on about the players some lack ability others desire. Frimpong has embarrassed himself believing himself to be above the club, he needs to decide whether he wants to be a footballer or a whatever he is. If he had any brains he would have seized this opportuinity and made himself a hero of the club and next season got himself a chance at going back to the prem or at least a more high profile club, instead he decided he was too good for us.
