Valerien Ismael hails Barnsley’s desire to keep winning

Valerien Ismael heaped praise on his men after Barnsley continued their march towards the Championship play-off places by making it five wins in a row with a 2-1 victory over Millwall.

 Cauley Woodrow

took the lead for the hosts inside two minutes. However, the lead was short-lived as

Mason Bennett

scored the equalizer four minutes later.



Michal Helik

scored the winner on the stroke of the hour mark with a close-range volley.



“Congratulations to the guys for the performance and the mentality on the pitch.

“It was a tough game – it was exactly as we expected against Millwall. We were prepared for the direct game today. That’s why we put a lot of bodies and physicality in the starting XI today, to compete at that level.

“I think we started very well and we scored quickly. To concede the goal was really poor. There was a concentration failure.

“After that it was a fight and a 50/50 situation on the game. In the second half we made a tactical change to have more pace behind.

“Today was a great team effort. To show a desire to keep moving and stay on the winning way.

“For sure, it was another game and it was another fight but we did it and we won and it’s a great feeling tonight.”
