Keith Hill: Seeking a change of fortune

A first half Marcus Tudgay header rescued a point for the Tykes after they had fallen behind to Charlie Austin's fourth-minute goal.

The draw extended Barnsley's winless streak to eight matches and they have not won a league game since beating Charlton in mid-October but Hill remains upbeat.

"It was an uphill challenge after their goal, but the way the lads responded was absolutely superb," he said. "They showed a lot of bravery and I am pleased with the way we played.

"I am pleased with a lot of aspects of what is happening, but what we are all focused on and what we have to achieve is the end result and there is something missing from everything we are doing.

"I am not fortunate enough to be a development manager who can lose every game as long as there is player development. There is a massive responsibility on me to get results.

"Performance-wise I am very happy and it is progress, definitely. I will wake up and look at the stats and if I can take away the scoreline, it will reflect very similar to the top teams in the league.

"The only thing is missing is the scoreline, we are that close, but are a million miles away."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
