We'll Continue The Push - Isgrove

11 April 2016

Following the Reds’ 2-1 defeat to Chesterfield, winger Lloyd Isgrove spoke to the media, insisting Barnsley’s play-off push is not yet over.


Isgrove felt the Reds were the better of the two sides and that the defeat will not hamper their push for the top six.


He said: “We’re six points adrift but it’s hard to say how many wins we’ll need for the play-offs because it changes every week.


“Different teams are winning and losing so it’s just going to be who gets a good run-in over the last six games.”


“We’ve got six games left and we want to try and pick up as many points as we can.”


After levelling the tie through Adam Hammill’s powerful strike, a late Ollie Banks goal proved enough for Danny Wilson’s side to take all the points.


The Southmpton loanee reflected on the game, assessing: “It was a disappointing result and I thought we deserved a lot more with the chances that we had in the game.


“To come away with no points, not even one, after them going down to 10 men is really disappointing.


“It was all us, if anyone was going to score again it would have been us but we were unfortunate today.”


Isgrove was with the Reds when they endured their difficult run of form earlier in the season but has been impressed with how far the squad have progressed.


From where they were to where Barnsley are now, he feels the turnaround has been remarkable but added the task is not yet at an end.


“The achievement to this point has been good but we want to keep pushing as much as we can and get into the play-offs.


“At the time, I felt we needed a bit of luck to change things around. We weren’t really doing anything different, we were working hard on the training ground and taking it into matches.


“We got that result and we went on an incredibly good run but we’ll continue to push for the play-offs,” he added.


The midfielder hit the post and found Tommy Lee in inspired form as he attempts to break his goalscoring duck with the Reds.


Isgrove hopes he will not have to wait too much longer to notch his first goal for the club.


“Someone up there isn’t letting it go in for me,” he joked. “The first is always the hardest to get and I should’ve got one today but I hit the post but we’ll just have to see.”
