David Flitcroft: Proud of Barnsley win

Teenage striker Danny Rose's first senior goal secured the victory over 10-man Burnley.

Rose came off the bench to score the winner five minutes from time when keeper Brian Jensen could only touch Scott Golbourne's overhit cross onto the crossbar and back into the 19-year-old's path.

The visitors were forced to play the majority of the tie with 10 men after midfielder Brian Stock was sent off for his second yellow on 37 minutes for a cynical shirt pull on Jim O'Brien.

Flitcroft said: "We deserved the result, the lads deserved the result, there's no doubt about that. The work that the boys have put in...

"I was made up for Danny Rose getting the winning goal, he's somebody who will score goals for this football club and today he's got a real important one.

"This boy, once he grows into his body, he's going to be some player and some goalscorer for this football club.

"We've protected him and kept him where he's at. And Danny Rose will be all right for this experience."

"I'm delighted for the boys, they've worked hard, they've fought well and today they've stuck to the task. They stood up to everything Burnley threw at them."

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
