Flicker's Thoughts on Burnley Victory

5 January 2013

Flicker's reaction

Reds Caretaker Manager David Flitcroft caught up with the press after today’s FA Cup victory over Burnley.

“We’ve worked hard and fought well. Burnley are a good team who put you under pressure and we stood up to them.

“The second half we completely dominated, but after we scored the goal they pushed us. We need a bit of calmness and that’s only what’s missing.

“There’s a lot to look forward to at this football club, you look at the energy and commitment of the youngsters. John Stones – the world is this boy’s oyster and people are taking notice of him.”

Youngster Danny Rose hammered in the winner, and the 19-year-old is a player who has a promising career at Oakwell, according to Flitcroft. “He’s somebody who will score goals for this club and today he’s got a really important one.

“Once he grows into his body he will be some player for this football club.

“I was disappointed in Jason Shackell – an older professional like that doing that to a 19-year-old. I never did that as a player, I’d usually go for the biggest player on the pitch, it was uncalled for.

“There’s a lot of fight and quality, we maybe need some streetwise.”
