We got what we deserved - Hill

3 October 2012

Barnsley boss Keith Hill believed his side did not deserve anything from their 2-0 npower Championship defeat to Peterborough which cost them their unbeaten home start to the season.

Peterborough opened the scoring in the second minute when George Boyd poked home after Shaun Brimley's header hit the post. Eight minutes later they doubled their lead when Tyrone Barnett headed home after a cross from Tommy Rowe.

Hill said: "We didn't deserve anything from this game. I thought Peterborough were excellent value for the points and I thought Boyd was outstanding. He is everything that I want from a player. Our performance players didn't perform.

"I am disappointed about losing the game but I am not going to throw myself off a bridge. I thought our effort deserved a goal but our performance tonight didn't deserve any points."

Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson praised his team's work effort as they won their second game in three days.

He said: "It was a great start, Boyd scored early on and he could have got more.

"He gives us energy. I left him out of the side earlier and that is probably what he wanted.

"We have just beaten a good team tonight in Barnsley. They had the majority of possession and we waited and attacked them on the counter-attack.

"The effort put in tonight by the players was fantastic. Throughout the whole squad there's togetherness. The lads have come off the field exhausted. If I can get the commitment they won't have any complaints from me."
