Defender Mat Sadler became the latest in a long line of Town players to score a long-range cracker this season when he blasted the equaliser in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Carlisle.

But Barker would be happy to take a few more scrappy goals to boost their play-off bid.

He said: "Nothing would delight me more than a two or three-yard tap-in.

"We are still quite an inexperienced side in certain areas and with experience comes the knowledge of where the ball is going to drop - that sense of anticipation.

"Having said that, not many ricochets seem to drop for us in the opposition box at the moment - but that will come."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
