Barnes not willing to walk away
A brace from striker Adam Stansfield helped the Grecians to a 2-1 victory with Michael Ricketts' second-half header mere consolation for Barnes, who had to endure taunts of "you don't know what you're doing" and "you're getting sacked in the morning" from both sets of supporters at St James' Park. "Of course my confidence is dented because we are losing matches," Barnes said. "But I am understanding why we are losing matches and seeing what we have done in the past. "We are not doing anything different now in terms of what I'm asking them to do, so I still have belief in that. "It is hard because it's not nice hearing the crowd and we haven't won, but from my point of view, nothing can stop me from coming in on Monday and working with the players. "That is not the hard part, the hard part is the players going out on the pitch and doing it."
