Barnsley came from behind to deny Huddersfield coach Poya Asbaghi his first win in one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. Lewis O’Brien scored for the visitors in the 33rd minute before Carlton Morris equalized for the home side in the second minute of stoppage time. Both sides made changes from the last round of matches with Frazier Campbell handed his first start since October.
Barnsley’s Poya Asbaghi: “A few mixed feelings. I am not sitting here being super-happy because you want to win, especially at home, but I think as a coach what is important is to see progress. We don’t have time to wait four or five weeks for players to start understanding what we mean. There’s a lot of progress and, if they can keep responding like that, we will improve. We showed that we can develop fast and we need to develop fast.”
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “We wanted to change two dynamics – the lack of wins and the away form. We did not use our chances well in the first half and lost concentration for a minute with their goal. But we had enough opportunities to score a second goal. In the last moment of the first half, we conceded a goal we could have avoided. In the second half, Barnsley was pressing higher and we struggled to beat the press. There are things we are doing well, but lots of things we can do better too.”
