After helping the Reds to an impressive win on the south coast this weekend, Dominik Frieser expressed his delight at notching his third goal for the club.
Our Austrian forward was on hand to cleverly sweep home a flowing team move on the hour mark to set up a magnificent finale against Bournemouth, before Carlton Morris’ wonderful header sealed all three points.
“What a fantastic win!” exclaimed Frieser. “We started good but, after our first goal, we stopped playing football. Then the gaffer said to us in the dressing room, a little bit louder, that this is not enough and we came out with a fantastic effort to get the three points. It’s so important.
“I’m so happy that I scored. It’s a long time since the last goal – Wednesday away. I’m working so hard every day to get goals and it’s brilliant. I try to help the team with everything I have in me; I run until I’m dead, I do my best and, if I score, it’s great.”
It is the fourth time that Barnsley have come from behind to win this season, which is an indication of the character and determination within the squad that they have the ability to continuously grind out results.
This victory was no less than the Reds deserved, and the scenes in the dugout and amongst the substitutes when Morris’ header nestled in the top corner showed the togetherness of this incredible group.
“Carlton is a great player – he’ll score and score and score,” continued Frieser. “Our bench jumped and was so happy. It’s unbelievable; we deserved this win and I think we played brilliant football.”
Up next for the Reds is a trip to Wycombe Wanderers on Wednesday evening and another opportunity to maintain the pressure on those around us in the league.
However, despite our lofty position in the Sky Bet Championship, Frieser insists that he and his teammates don’t focus on the current standings, instead following Valérien Ismaël’s one by one mantra that has served Barnsley so well this campaign.
“We don’t look at the table; we take it game by game,” asserted the 27-year-old. “We try to win every game and, if we do our best and play like this, we’ll get another win.”
