Wilson Tells Players To Be Proud Of Derby Day Effort

Wednesday February 5 2014

DANNY Wilson has told his players they should be proud of their Hillsborough performance.

The Reds finished the derby with just nine men - and played with 10 for over an hour - following red cards for midfielders Emmanuel Frimpong and Jacob Mellis.

It took a 97th-minute strike from Wednesday's Chris Maguire to break the deadlock and Barnsley's hearts.

Wilson - whose side remain five points away from safety - believes the Reds' fighting spirit on Saturday will serve them well in the coming months.

He said: "You can't ask any more from the players - they've given everything. You don’t often see your own fans staying behind after the game and giving you a standing ovation after a derby defeat.

"We can do better with technical stuff but when you play with your heart on your sleeve, as they have done, that's all you ask from players."
