Oppositions View - Keith Hill - Barnsley

Barnsley manager Keith Hill was disappointed that his side could not hang onto the lead at Birmingham, but he was pleased with the overall performance of his side.

Chris Burke`s goal four minutes from time denied the Tykes what would have been just their fifth win in 25 league games.
But Hill was satisfied with a point from Birmingham at St Andrews.

'I was really encouraged by the performance at 1-0,' said Hill.

'I didn't think we were in any danger until the last 10 minutes, when there was an obvious threat.

'I thought we should have been more comfortable when holding the lead. I thought the performance merited more goals. But I am encouraged by the performance coming to Birmingham and competing.

'At times we looked an accomplished Championship side and had more than enough opportunities to have won.

'But before the game everyone had written us off, so I am encouraged by the performance and we keep our belief and confidence.'
