Our midfielder previewed the upcoming clash with Preston North End on Saturday.
“It’s probably been the lowest week. Seeing the lads, everyone is devastated. Obviously, the game against Blackpool, we wanted to go out and press and get in their faces, and things just didn’t go to plan again.
“It’s obviously hard to put a finger on what’s going wrong, but nothing seems to be falling for us and they were the better team again. We didn’t deserve to get anything, and it was a poor game for everyone.
“There’s no explanation; we haven’t been good enough – and that’s everyone, really. People are putting in shifts, but even myself in the last couple of games I haven’t been good enough at all.
“I know it’s cliché, we’ve got to keep going and that’s all we can do.”
ON BLACKPOOL GAME
“There’s no point pretending we’re doing well. To be honest, the other day I don’t think there’s many positives to go on, probably Marshy coming on and doing well is the only positive we can take from that game.”
ON BARNSLEY FUTURE
“I’ll play these last two games, give everything and work hard through the summer and come back stronger and fitter and try and get as many games as I can in a successful team next season.”
ON MARTIN DEVANEY
“Obviously, I’ve known him for a while; he’s a top man – same as Tom Harban, as well; brilliant people. They’ve been here for a long time and deserve an opportunity.
“But like Daverz said, he’s just enjoying it and just trying to get the best out of us. It’s a learning experience for him as well because he’s never coached the first team, so I think it’s something he deserves and is enjoying.”
ON CONNECTION WITH SUPPORTERS
“The fans want to see hungry players who want to play for the club as well, because that’s what Barnsley is about – people running and putting tackles in – and I think that can only be a positive if young players play and people who want to play.”
ON PRESTON GAME
“We’ve got to go out and be a lot more aggressive than we were the other day. I think we lost 70% aerial balls and 60% second balls from what Daverz said this morning in post-match. So, we’ve got to have a bit of fire in our belly to win tackles and win second balls, and that’s the minimum we can do.”
