Following our 2-1 defeat against Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon, Victor Adeboyejo feels it is fine margins that is preventing the Reds from picking up points.

In what was a decent performance at St. Andrew’s, Barnsley arguably had the better chances but were left to rue silly mistakes that ultimately led to two costly goals as we left the second city empty handed.

“I don’t think we deserved to lose at all,” admitted Adeboyejo. “I thought everyone dug in and everyone worked hard, it’s literally just the little details at the moment – not picking up a second ball from a long ball and the set-piece as well.

“So, it is just the little details, and we’re creating a lot of chances as well – it’s just finding a way to get them in the net for us.”

A handful all game, the 24-year-old was at the heart of everything we did well with excellent link-up play and powerful running in the channels to create openings for his teammates.

His goal was fully deserved and, had it not been for an outstanding Neil Etheridge save, could have added to his tally in what was a fine individual display.

“All through the week, not just myself but everyone has been on it and working hard – working on little things that we are trying to implement on the pitch,” continued Adeboyejo.

“When we do that, you can see the amount of chances we are creating and it’s about finding a way to create them. I was able to take one, but it wasn’t enough in the end. 

“I just want to be in between the sticks and find an opportunity to score. We have to keep working hard and putting pressure on the other teams because we didn’t look like a team that’s been struggling; we didn’t look like a team that needed confidence.

“Everyone was on it and everyone was working. Again, it’s just the little details.”

The Reds travel to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday evening for our next Sky Bet Championship assignment as fixtures begin to pile up in relentless fashion.

Adeboyejo believes he and his teammates need to dust themselves off after this latest setback, look at the positives and take that into the trip to the City Ground.

“There’s games coming thick and fast – literally every other day,” discussed our forward. “Everyone is going to be down in this moment because we didn’t win, but we’ll be back working in training and trying to start preparations for Nottingham Forest and give them a game as well.”
