Barnsley defender Bobby Hassell has praised the club's start of season form following a rocky opening.
The Tykes were thrashed 4-0 by QPR on the opening day of the season before being dumped out of the Carling Cup by Rochdale, evoking memories of the previous campaign where they were left with a solitary point after six games.
But Mark Robins men have taken seven points from a possible nine in their last three outings to leave them sitting pretty in the top half of the Championship.
"After the 4-0 defeat to QPR it looked like we'd do our usual poor start, but that's not been the case," Hassell told The Star.
"Obviously losing to Rochdale dented our confidence even more, but since then we've improved a lot.
"It's great we've got more points than last season but we've not achieved anything yet."
