Keith Hill: Barnsley manager pleased with a draw at Bolton

The Tykes had not managed to pick up a point since 23 October but they battled back well from conceding a lead to Kevin Davies.

Another Davies, Barnsley's Craig, ensured the match ended in a draw with a fine 25-yard effort, and that left Hill to praise his players for not letting their heads drop when they went a goal down.

Hill said: "It could have ebbed away at the little confidence we had, but it didn't and we looked strong in the second half.

"I'm really pleased with that and I just hope it gives the players a bit more confidence.

"We're happy with a point with respect to the results we've recently had. We can't complain and won't complain."

Hill was also pleased with the contribution of Davies and fellow forward Marcus Tudgay, who came in on loan from Nottingham Forest earlier this week.

"When you've got a goalscoring threat, the opposition have to respect you," he added.

"We haven't scored enough goals and, with having Craig on the pitch today and Marcus Tudgay, we looked more of a threat. I think it takes the pressure off the team."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
