Corner Turned, Says Flicker

BARNSLEY manager David Flitcroft believes the club have 'turned the corner' after holding Championship promotion challengers Reading to a 1-1 draw.

The Reds remain at the bottom of the table, having conceded 25 goals in their opening 10 league games, but Flitcroft is now certain they're heading in the right direction.

"We've had a tough run of games and we know where we're at," he said. "I see the balance improving in the team and I believe we'll just keep getting better."

Tuesday night's draw saw Barnsley end a run of four consecutive defeats, with some fans even calling for a change in management.

Flitcroft, 39, was able to give home debuts to new loan signings David Fox and Butland and saw his side dominate for long periods against a team which had won their previous three matches.

"We've had a lot of injuries, but if we can get a steady team and the right balance that's the key," he added. 

"I've no doubt we'll build something special here. It'll take a bit longer but I certainly believe in that. It was a real powerful, positive performance on Tuesday."

Barnsley fans, do you think we've turned a corner? Have your say below.

Wiseman still weak link

Perkins had been poor in previous games but looked reinvigorated and behind McCourt was contendor for Man of Match (Though O'Grady scored and that's how it goes.

Can Noble Lazarus play on the right as well as left? He should be starting, so should Cywka (Who was brilliant when he came on)

Panic defence is a problem, though the attacking players put their defencive shift in too - They must not have confidence i the back. Cranie had a good game mind.

They fought until the end - although we expect this, this is a major turnaround from the second half drivvle we have been watching.

I think most fans on their walk home saw that this was a turning point and the lads can do it.
