Lindsay: "We've been defeated, we move on."

The defender reacts to Charlton defeat

21 October 2018

Reds defender Liam Lindsay offered his thoughts following the defeat at Charlton.

Barnsley suffered their second loss of the Sky Bet League One season yesterday as hosts Charlton Athletic ran out 2-0 winners in a game that the Reds will look to forget quickly. 

A goal in either half from Karlan Grant was enough to see the Addicks condemn Daniel Stendel's side to defeat in the capital.

Centre half Liam Lindsay admitted the Reds were way off it in terms of performance but accepted they'd been beaten by the better side on the day.

He told us: "Charlton will be up there at the end of the season, they're a good side, they showed that this afternoon. 

"Taking nothing away from them, because they did what they had to, but we were way off today. We have been prolific in front of goal recently but today, for whatever reason, we couldn't get anything going.

"We weren't good enough. We've been defeated, we move on."

The man signed from Partick Thistle in 2017 has been a mainstay in the Barnsley side since his arrival and won't allow this setback to deter him or his teammates from striving for the end goal. 

"We've been good this season, we're doing well. Today wasn't our day. But there's no heads down in there (the changing room). 

"We're disappointed, it's points dropped. But we know we have quality in our squad. There's talented players here, we know that. 

"It's football. There's not a team out there that can call themselves the finished article. You'll lose if you aren't on it. We've seen that today. 

"But we move on to Tuesday. It's good to be able to get straight back on it. It's a chance to put things right and get some points on the board. It's a long season, there's no reason why we can't string another run together.

"I'd like to thank the fans who turned out in number yet again, we're going to need them every week and hopefully they come and back us in Shrewsbury on Tuesday and we show them something better than this performance."
