In the wake of our agonising 1-0 loss at home to Millwall on Saturday afternoon, Callum Brittain spoke of his devastation at conceding a heart-breaking late goal.

The Reds performed admirably and looked good for at least a point after frustrating defeats against Blackpool and Nottingham Forest, but were unable to take their opportunities and hold off an imposing Lions side.

“Disappointed, gutted, devastated,” asserted Brittain. “All of those. It’s not nice to concede a goal like that, especially when you’ve battled all game and created chances.

“We had spells in the game and it comes down to a corner kick, and we concede from it, so it’s not good enough and I can’t say much more on it. 

“It hurts, especially the run we’ve gone on. I thought we battled, I thought we put it in the channels and competed with them.

“There weren’t many chances for either team, to be honest, it was all about who was going to take theirs and, to concede from a corner is tough and we have to pick our heads up.”

Up next for Barnsley is a trip to Reading in a fortnight as we aim to get back to winning ways after the international break.

Brittain is confident in the squad’s ability and feels there is more than enough talent in the changing room to start turning our fortunes around.

“We’ve got two weeks now to really go and work, grind and try some new patterns on the pitch, and we need to come back after the international break and start kicking on,” continued the wing-back.

“It’s part of football and it’s a tough spell that we’re going on, but I believe in everyone in that changing room and so should everyone else. We’ve got some real quality and, hopefully, we should start producing soon.”
