Barnsley

manager has talked about their performance in the night that they defeated

Tranmere

in FA Cup.

Valerian Ismael

hails his center back who scored an important goal in their 2-0 victory but says that they need to use all the opportunities they get and do more than just set pieces.

“When the game is so close, you might need an opportunity from a set-piece and they are another good situation for us to use.

“But we have to work hard on scoring goals with the big opportunities we get as well.

“We had to stay patient, but needed to be clinical with our first chance.

“Friesey had a big chance to score and, at half-time, I told the team that we had to stay focussed and be more clinical and ruthless.

“I then thought we controlled the second half and defended well. There was some good box defending and we pressed and forced the mistake at the end to finish the job.

“It was a fight and a tough game. If you look at the results in the cup, there are some big surprises, so I am delighted we are through with a clean sheet.

“It was a great afternoon for us, because (captain) Alex Mowatt came back into the team as well.”
