The points at Oakwell were shared last night as two second half goals saw the match between Barnsley and Reading finish 1-1.
Cauley Woodrow gave the hosts the lead, but a late Lucas Joao goal helped earn Reading a point and keep Barnsley bottom of the Sky Bet Championship.
Barnsley boss Gerhard Struber felt like his side deserved all three points. As quoted by BBC Sport, he said: “We created a lot of good chances in the first half and I think we should have taken one of them. We need to learn. We played for a victory after they equalised and I think that is the first step to change the mindset of the players.”
“I’m not happy with one point because when you look at the game you would expect that we would have won it. We needed to focus on their goal and one or two players didn’t do that. It’s a situation we can learn from because we are a very young team.”
Reading manager Mark Bowen was happy to take a point from a game that they struggled in.
“In the situation we’re in, you’ve got to try and take something out of every game you play,” he said.
“I’m really pleased that after going behind in a game and conceding a poor goal, we showed the resilience to keep pushing and we changed a few things tactically and it paid off. We huffed and puffed a bit and showed a bit more quality on the ball, but it’s not going that fluidly for us at the moment at times.”
“Things seem to be going against us with injuries, but there was desire to fight back and take something.”
