Late penalty seals win
“We started slowly, and got dominated to be fair.” said Reds Academy Assistant Manager, Mark Burton, speaking exclusively to barnsleyfc.co.uk. “We went 1-0 down but we got going after the break.
George Maris and Brad Abbott got the goals – with the latter notching a brace for the young Reds.
Barnsley’s Under 18s made it five wins on the bounce after a late penalty gave them the edge over Coventry City.
“We had a number of chances to put the game to bed.”
“It was a hardworking performance. Coventry are a decent side and the lads accept they have to perform better.
“We gave away a sloppy goal for 2-2. Both sides went for a winner and then Rhys Oates did well to win us a penalty.
