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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
