Speaking after our 0-0 draw at Peterborough United on Saturday afternoon, Mads Andersen feels Barnsley will continue to make progress under Poya Asbaghi.
It is the first point under our new Head Coach’s regime, and there are encouraging signs that the Reds are beginning to develop more structure and understanding of his methods on the pitch.
“There were a couple of chances for both teams, but I think we were most of the time well-organised,”discussed Andersen. “We could have been a bit better on the counter-attack, but we will work on this next week and I believe we will improve.”
Barnsley kept a clean sheet for the first time since mid-September against Blackburn Rovers – ending a run of 11 games without one.
Andersen is hopeful that the shutout will help to boost morale moving forward and give his side a platform to build on heading into the festive schedule.
“We are obviously happy for the clean sheet – that’s important, also, to win games,” continued our Danish defender. “So, we’re happy about that and just have to keep that confidence we get from clean sheets and take it into the next game.”
The Reds were cheered on by 1,200 travelling fans at the Weston Homes Stadium, who braved the conditions to make the 200-mile round trip.
Our loyal band of supporters were magnificent throughout, and Andersen paid tribute to those who made the journey south.
“It was great support,” he exclaimed. “You could hear them all the time, cheering, so thank you so much for the support – it was great to have them!”
