They say when the season is over you finish in a reflective position, which is something Adam Hammill certainly doesn’t feel is the case with Barnsley at this point in time – fortunately the season isn’t over yet either!

A positive has seen a final in the JPT final secured, following a midweek win at Wigan to set up an area final with Fleetwood, but it’s back to the bread and butter of the league this weekend when Colchester come to Oakwell on Saturday, they’re also struggling, with a win likely to be enough to move the Reds off the foot of the League 1 table.

Hammill’s been speaking to the BBC, fresh from his newly signed contract to take him through until the end of the season, to say he feels Barnsley are in a ‘false predicament’ with the incentive coming up to move out of the bottom four.

‘The incentive for us is to win and get out of the bottom four. I’ve said before we’re in a false predicament, we should be nowhere near the position we are in.

‘We should be pushing towards the play-offs and we need to go into every game being confident and win as many as we can. All we can do for now is just build our way up the table.’

At 27 Hammill’s hardly ‘old’ but given it’s such a young squad, on the whole, at Oakwell he’s actually one of the older players with him happy with the responsibility Lee Johnson’s given him along with the belief shown in him to give him this new contract.

When offered the chance to return to Barnsley he didn’t think twice nor did he about staying, adding.

‘It was a decision I took as soon as I got the offer. I had no doubt this was the place I needed to be because I feel I have unfinished business here. The manager has given me responsibility because I’m one of the older players and I need to be a role model to them. I’m thriving on it.’
