Tykes boss remains defiant

18 Sep 2008 - 07:09:18

Barnsley manager Simon Davey remains hopeful that his side can turn around their dismal start to the new season.

A 1-0 defeat at Cardiff City left the Tykes with just three points from their opening six Championship games this season, with Davey's position coming under pressure.

He said: "We were not good enough in the first half, but in the second we huffed and puffed without getting any luck. So it was a very disappointing result again.

"At times we looked good, but at other times we didn't.

"Our set-pieces were very poor, it was very frustrating to hit the first man every time, but it's down to the players when they cross the white line.

"We will look to learn from this and move on, hopefully we can get more of the rub of the green and hopefully the results will turn.

"I am the same manager who took Barnsley to the FA Cup semi-final last season.

"We will keep working to put this right and I might have to make changes to our team."
