Lindsay: "It was a very good clean sheet."

14 January 2018

The Scotsman gave his reaction to yesterday's 0-0 draw against league leaders, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Liam Lindsay has spoken highly of Barnsley’s defensive display after Saturday afternoon’s goalless draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Oakwell.

The towering centre-half played a huge part in preventing league leaders, Wolves from even forcing an attempt on target in the 90 minutes, despite being the Sky Bet Championship’s highest scorers.

 

“It was a good point and a good clean sheet as well, either of us could have nicked it but I think it turned out to be a fair result,” Lindsay said after the stalemate.

“Every team has strikers who play in different ways which helps me with experience, and Wolves are technically good. They like dropping off, they cause problems, but our back four dealt with them today.

“There have been times where we’ve struggled for clean sheets, so it’s good that we are improving and it gives us more chance to go on and win games.”

 

Lindsay partnered Ethan Pinnock at the back for the sixth match running as the Reds valiantly earned a point against the Championship table-toppers, and the 22-year-old believes they can further maintain their places in Paul Heckingbottom’s side.

 

“Different things happen, injuries and things like that… so there’s been a bit of chopping and changing, but myself and Ethan have been playing well at the back and we complement each other well.

“Hopefully we can stamp down our positions and take the team as high as we can be, because everything is clicking now with what has been a completely new team.”

 

As tall and powerful as Lindsay is, the defender admitted new signing Kieffer Moore has taken over the role of the tallest member of the squad – and thinks the 6’6’’ striker had an encouraging debut from the bench at Oakwell.

“I have to put my hands up and say that Kieffer is the biggest! I’ve not actually faced him in training yet, but you could see what he brings when he came on.

“He helps relieve the pressure when we’re on the back foot, he’s big and good in the air, but also very quick and good with his feet. He can finish well, so I’m sure he’ll be a brilliant signing for us.”

 

The former Partick Thistle man has settled brilliantly into Barnsley’s squad and style of play, and it is easy to forget not only his age but that this season is Lindsay’s first experience of English football.

“I’m enjoying playing every week, the gaffer has trusted in me.

“I’m just experiencing everything in the [Championship] and I think I’m coping well with it, so it’s happy days for me personally.”
