Danny Wilson pleased with battling Barnsley

12 October 2014

Barnsley manager Danny Wilson praised his side after they came back from 1-0 down to beat Bradford City 3-1.

The Bantams got off to a great start when Jason Kennedy scored after just 45 seconds, firing past a diving Ross Turnbull.

Wilson's side levelled shortly after half-time through a Rory McArdle  own goal, as he diverted a header from a Conor Hourihane set-piece into Jordan Pickford's goal.

The Reds carried their momentum into the final stages and Sam Winnall gave them a 67th-minute lead when he got on the end of a Lewin Nyatanga cross to poke the ball into an unguarded net.

Kane Hemmings was on hand to slide the ball in for Barnsley's third goal deep into stoppage time.

Wilson said: "Overall it was a very pleasing performance. We had some very good chances and some of the football we played was excellent. In the second half we did everything we have been promising to do.

"I know that towards the end of the game Bradford were chasing it a bit, but I thought that we were full of threats in different areas. We got a goal at a good time which gave us a lot of time to go and win it, but the perseverance and patience we showed today was excellent."
