'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Gaffer's View: Barnsley (h)



Chris Hughton admitted after the draw with Barnsley on Saturday that he was relieved to get a point.

Blues were far from their best, but Chris Burke struck four minutes from time to cancel out a fantastic strike from Jacob Butterfield.

Hughton was under no illusions, he admitted that Barnsley were by far the better team in the first half thanks to one of the poorest displays he has seen from his side since taking over.

Hughton told Sky Sports: 'It was relief in the end because the first-half performance wasn't good,' he said.

'It was probably as poor as we have been in the period of time I've been here.

'They are a team in really good form and it showed. It was going to be a case of having to match them because we were not good enough on the ball.'


Hughton was disappointed a foul was not picked up in the build-up to Barnsley`s goal.

He added: 'It was a wonderful strike for their goal but it was most definitely a foul, a blatant foul, leading up to the shot.

'I was very surprised in this day and age, and looking at the other bookings, that he did not pull that one up as a foul.

'That aside, they deservedly had the lead in the first half on the balance of play.'
