David Flitcroft: The Barnsley boss has a relegation battle on his hands

Charlie Austin had given the hosts the lead before half-time substitute Tomasz Cywka struck in the closing stages.

While the goal prevented the Tykes losing three successive games, they still

dropped into the relegation zone with Wolves beating Millwall and Flitcroft said: "I'm not happy with the point, I came for all three.

"We wanted all three and we needed all three. With regards to the second-half dominance we had, I felt as though we had to chase the game but some of the play in the second half is what I wanted to represent one of my teams.

"Tomasz Cywka's work ethic has been incredible. The guy has been out of the team and he's been someone who has kept patience, been resilient and has epitomised everything I believe a human being should be.

"I was disappointed in myself because of maybe the way we set the team up in the first half.

"Chris O'Grady led the fight second half but he should have been down the middle. Hindsight is a wonderful thing but it is definitely something I'll learn from."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
