Dimas: "You can always do more."

26 February 2018

The Reds are looking to making it back-to-back away victories when they visit Hull tomorrow night, and Dimas today spoke to iFollow ahead of the match.

Barnsley Assistant Head Coach, Dimas insists the team needs to build on the win over Birmingham City with another three points at Hull City on Tuesday evening.

Oli McBurnie scored twice at St Andrew’s as the Reds recorded an impressive victory to lift themselves out of the relegation zone - leapfrogging Saturday’s hosts in the process.

And another similar performance at the KCOM Stadium could see Barnsley climb above the Tigers and potentially as high as 18th, depending on the result between Reading and Sheffield United at the Madejski Stadium.

“We achieved exactly what I think the team is capable of - but they can do it better,” said Dimas. "They have to take these things that we do well and improve, and they will understand that we are all together. We have 25 players that will all have their chances and it all depends on them.

"If they do what José gives as the idea, I think we will get better every day and every week. Every game we will try and keep the standard and this performance, which was a good performance. But I think to myself, it’s not enough; we have to do more. You can always do more.

“It’s obvious that when you’re in a bad spell and you get a win it’s a relief for everyone - for the fans, for the administration - but it’s not enough. 

"That’s only the first one. We look at it; it’s three points - a great three points, more than deserved - and the next game is there tomorrow where we have to have the same attitude, the same mentality and go for the three points."

Hull come into the game on the back on a morale-boosting 1-0 win at home to Sheffield United on Friday evening.

Nouha Dicko’s second half strike was enough to secure a crucial three points against a Blades’ side pushing hard for the play-offs, as Nigel Adkins’ team recorded a home league victory for the first time since 23rd December.

"Obviously Hull are a good team, we’re aware of that,” continued the Portuguese. "We have to get a result.

“Hull is a team that came down from the Premiership that are going through some difficulties, but they have a solid team - we’re aware of that. Obviously we cannot say too much about our game-plan, but we’re prepared.”
