THE Reds earned their first win in six games to defeat former boss Keith Hill's high-flying Rochdale.

Peter Ramage, who re-signed with Barnsley on loan from Crystal Palace earlier in the week, headed the only goal of the game after 10 minutes to lift Danny Wilson's side out of the League One relegation zone.

The Reds had an opportunity to double their lead late on, but Conor Hourihane's penalty was saved by Rochdale goalkeeper Conrad Logan.

"We saw more of what we're about," said Wilson. "We fully deserved the three points so let's hope we can put that little blip behind us and move forward."

Next up for Barnsley is a trip to Oldham tomorrow night.

Was still a dour, slow performance with players not knowing their roles.

We need to play with a quicker tempo and actually go for teams. Got lucky in the second half with sitting back with no intent at times to go forward.

The style of play is costing us, and need to give Jennings games to bring his fitness levels up. Jennings is struggling at the moment but give him a run of 3 games and he’ll come through and turn things around.

We got the three points, but the football was not good. Very scrappy, long ball tactics. Didn't look to attack and played on the break. What has it come to when we appear to be scared of Rochdale. Need to recruit more skilful players who are industrious and have football awareness. Supporters would appreciate being entertained by the club adopting a more attacking mentality

Please dont moan at the football or the type of football. You subscribed to exactly that, by consistently contributing to the funds at oakwell. That must have been what you wanted?

Subscribing to club funds and getting what I wanted are two completely different things.

Tony - the team is very poor and you fools will still pay, if you went in to a bar/restaurant and had a bad meal would you return.. answers on a postcard.

Yes, the team is currently poor, but we live in hope that matters will improve. Not sure that my football club can be compared to a casual visit to a bar/restaurant.
