Manager Neil Harris has said he was gutted to lose a share of the spoils with Barnsley late winner last night.

Having taken the lead, only to fall two goals behind, Fred Onyedinma grabbed his brace for the evening and looked set to give us a point, but an injury time winner for them sunk everyone.

Speaking to the official site following the game, Harris felt it had been harsh on us given our efforts but clearly we have problems defending from set pieces this year.

‘You can’t concede three times from set-pieces like we have done tonight. Seven goals conceded in two League games at home just isn’t good enough. We’re gutted. After Saturday we were hoping for a performance and a result but overall it wasn’t great. I’ve left my players in no uncertain terms as to my disappointment. Character wise they have to be better.’

Three home defeats on the trot and not even Fred’s first two senior goals for the club could lighten the mood, and Harris went on to say that the message he left the players with mainly was do they want to be here because he’s questioning if we do need some new faces to energise the place again.

‘Maybe we do need some new ones. I’ve asked some of the group to go away and think about if they want to play for this club. Now we have to focus on picking ourselves up for Saturday. Scunthorpe will be tough but the players owe me a performance.’
