David Flitcroft caught up with Barnsley Player following tonight's 1-1 draw with Reading at Oakwell.
“I was gutted we didn’t go in at half time a goal to the good,” Flitcroft told Barnsley Player.
“We wanted a half time clean sheet which we got.
“The stadium drove us forward. They willed the team to go on. Chris O’Grady – who the fans love and he loves this club – got us the equaliser.
“They’re (fans) amazing and they’ve given me so much hope. We’ll ignite the fans, that’s our job to do that. It was an exciting team performance but one of steel, grit and determination.
“We’ve took them (Reading) on and deserved to win the football match.
“We’re going to try and evolve a different football team that’s got a passion about it, but it’s got to have a quality about it.
“I’m delighted with a lot of the aspects of tonight’s game. We’re going to grow into this season, there’s no doubt about that.”
Flitcroft had particular praise for Chris O’Grady who equalised for the Reds tonight with what’s becoming a trademark part of his game
“It doesn’t just happen,” said Flitcroft. “Chris O’Grady works and works and works, and demands me to ask for more from him.
“For a six foot two monster, he’s so athletic.”
