NEILL COLLINS REACTS TO READING WIN

9 December 2023

Our Head Coach spoke to iFollow Barnsley after the Reds defeated Reading 3-1 at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

The Reds found themselves behind inside the opening five minutes, but fought back to claim three points in Berkshire on Saturday afternoon.

Herbie Kane netted a penalty to level the scoring after 39 minutes, Devante Cole putting the Reds ahead ten minutes from time with an emphatic half-volley and the victory was sealed by Max Watters in the 87th minute.

Collins credited his side for turning the scoreline around against the Royals in the latter stages of the affair.

"The three points were the most important thing today," he began. "We want to continue to push up the table, win games - we did that. There's a lot of aspects to the performance, particularly in the second half, I thought the performance was very positive.

"Coming from behind, it's not something that we want to do too often. Unfortunately, we've been in that position but today we've been able to turn that into a win which is a huge credit to the resilience of the lads."

Neill Collins' full post-match thoughts are available now on iFollow Barnsley.
