Conor Hourihane has admitted to having more than a few frustrations from the one-one draw with Blackpool on Saturday.

Speaking to the Official Website Hourihane has confessed his disappointment that Barnsley weren’t able to come back from Blackpool with more than just a point.

An early goal from the midfielder had the Reds on the right track, however Blackpool struck back but he knows for all the possession we had not enough chances were created.

‘I’m disappointed because I thought we played well.

‘Even in the second half when they got a bit of a foothold, we still played all right and created some chances.

‘We had a lot of possession but probably didn’t create enough chances.’

It wasn’t ever going to be a given Barnsley could go to Blackpool and come away with anything, despite the well documented problems, but optimism was high we could manage this and when you go a goal up within 10-minutes it couldn’t really be much better could it!

The problem is all the while you’ve only got a one-goal lead you vulnerable and Jack Redshaw was able to earn Blackpool, who Hourihane knows were still ‘hungry’ to succeed despite these issues, a point.

He added that second goal was what we really needed.

‘We were well on top and to score only one goal was well disappointed. We could have done with that second to make sure of a victory.

‘We all know that Blackpool have got their problems but they still had 11 hungry players on the pitch who wanted to win the game.

‘Maybe towards the end we could have nicked it with a few balls into the box.’

On a personal note he was happy to take his goals tally to three for the season so far.

He knows there’s plenty of goals in the Barnsley side are many are capable of scoring them so he’s hopeful we’ll ‘take lessons’ from this draw with more chances created, and certainly taken, going forward as goals ‘win games’ obviously!
