Blame us if we go down - Hassell

The Tykes travel to Home Park on Sunday to take on Plymouth Argyle, who may need to avoid defeat themselves to guarantee survival, and Hassell was in no doubt about his side's failings after Saturday's 1-1 draw with champions Wolves. Hassell said: "That was definitely two points dropped. Being 1-0 up at 85 minutes you have to close a game out and that's been our Achilles heel for the last five or six games. "We're not learning from our mistakes. We're dropping deep as a team and, inevitably, teams keep getting one chance and keep sticking it in the back of the net against us. "We now have a massive game and we need to go to Plymouth and pick up three points. We have approached games really well and have been 1-0 up in the last four of five games, but then panic sets in because you know you're five minutes from safety." Hassell added: "We've dropped 10 points in our last seven games, so if we go down we only have ourselves to blame, definitely."
