David Flitcroft: Steep learning curve since Keith Hill's departure

David Flitcroft: Steep learning curve since Keith Hill's departure

Two Chris Dagnall goals earned the home side a well-deserved victory over Leeds and maintained coach Flitcroft's 100% record since Keith Hill was sacked.

Barnsley's attempts to attract Terry Butcher and Sean O'Driscoll have failed, leaving Flitcroft as odds-on favourite to land the job permanently.

He said: "I have found out a lot about myself in the last 10 days. It could change the way I look at myself for the rest of my career.

"When you lead a group and they are all playing for you, it's different. I'm not going to walk out on that group of players. If I get sacked, I get sacked, but I've been taught well and you don't walk out on people."

Of the game he said: "As a coach, you look at the performance. I told them at half-time I was excited about it. We overran and dominated Leeds.

"I wanted to spend some time with the players and celebrate with them after the game, especially someone like Chris Dagnall. I worked with him at Rochdale where he got 24 in a season for us.

"I picked some music and put the goals to it and showed him before kick-off. He epitomises what it's like to be a Barnsley fan. He's hard working and he has that ethic they want."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
