MICHAEL DUFF REACTS TO DEFEAT AGAINST ADDICKS

15 January 2023

Our Head Coach provided his reaction to our 2-0 defeat away to Charlton Athletic for iFollow Barnsley.

In a game where the Reds had 23 attempts on goal, Charlton ran out 2-0 winners at The Valley in Sky Bet League One action, courtesy of Tyreece Campbell and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi.

Duff believed the performance was more than satisfactory, especially given the recent form of Saturday's opponents, but felt his side could have been more clinical in the final third.

"Good performance, poor result," began the gaffer. "65% of the ball, 23 shots, but a poor goal given away again and we haven't scored. There are definitely things to work on but I don't think they'll be many teams that come here between now and the end of the season, with the lift they had, the players they've got and the players they've strengthened with and pretty much dominate the game."

Despite accumulating multiple shots on Charlton's goal, the Reds failed to penetrate the Addicks' defence on Saturday afternoon.

Michael Duff's side came close to breaching the opposition's goal, with Josh Benson and Nicky Cadden both seeing efforts rattle off of the crossbar. 

"You can always improve your final pass," discussed Duff. "We've hit the crossbar twice, we've had one off the line, we've had one that's going in and hit our player. It's a frustrating one."
