Following the narrow 2-1 defeat at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, Herbie Kane says Barnsley need to put this game behind them and take the positives moving forward.

Despite Romal Palmer’s late strike, the Reds were unable to recover from goals in either half from Adam Armstrong and Sam Gallagher.

“I thought it was a good game,” said Kane. “I thought we should have gone ahead quite early on – we had chances. They had one or two shots in the first half and scored. It’s a disappointing result, but we have to forget about that now and focus on the next match.”

Barnsley had by far the greater chances throughout the encounter, particularly in the first half with Conor Chaplin and Luke Thomas both coming close, while Mads Andersen forced a brilliant save from Thomas Kaminski after the interval.

Our midfielder believes the Reds need to be more clinical, but insists there will be plenty of hard work done on the training ground to ensure the goals start flowing.

“We had chances all game but it doesn’t matter if the ball isn’t in the back of the net,” asserted Kane. “So we definitely need to be more clinical and we’ll work on that in training and, moving forward, hopefully it pays off.”
