Haynes happy to send United down

Barnsley's two-goal striker Danny Haynes had no qualms about playing the villain in the 2-2 derby draw at relegated Sheffield United. Haynes, 23, first put the Tykes in front and then grabbed a late equaliser, with his sixth and seventh goals of the season, scuppering any faint hopes the Blades fans had of going into the final game of the season with a chance of avoiding the drop. Haynes told Barnsley's official website: "It's nice to get two goals in a local derby, but it's disappointing not to get the three points. "I knew what the situation was obviously with Sheffield United needing the three points, but I'm here to do my job to get goals and that's what I achieved." Haynes has been impressed with Barnsley's fans since arriving from Bristol City for an undisclosed fee in the January transfer window. He added: "The support they showed was fantastic and hopefully they'll be the same next weekend against Millwall and we'll try and get more points for them.
