Barnsley manager Keith Hill believes his side have got what it takes to achieve the "impossible dream" of Championship safety.

Keith Hill: Believes in his Barnsley players

The Tykes, who have been hit hard by injuries this season, have slumped to five defeats from their last seven games and they go into Saturday's Yorkshire derby with Huddersfield just one place above the drop zone.

That form has led to some fans questioning Hill's position, but he remains confident of staying up.

"The demands of the Championship are huge," Hill said. "There are probably 18 teams that really thought they were going to have an opportunity to achieve a promotion place.

"So it was always going to be a tough task but it's achievable.

"We have to be focused on getting the 50 points we need to stay up, it's definitely achievable. We can achieve the impossible dream but it will take a lot of bottle."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
