Barnsley players were receiving a lot of stick from the fans during the recent match against Huddersfield Town and manager Danny Wilson says that the supporters were right to express their displeasure after the team suffered a 5-0 defeat in this match. Even though Barnsley started the encounter in good fashion by creating a lot of chances, they capitulated after two goals from Huddersfield in the first half. There were three more goals set to come in the second half in a defeat that places them bottom of the table.

Even though Barnsley are just two points away from safety, it remains to be seen if the players will be able to recover from this poor showing against a mid-table Huddersfield side. Wilson, though, reckons that the players can shake off this poor defeat and look at the upcoming match.

According to, Barnsley took close to 2000 fans for this match, but this disappointing showing meant that most of them were chanting against the player’s midway through the match. Substitute Stephen Dawson was involved in an altercation with one of the supporters after growing tired of the abuse.

He had to be restrained by some of the teammates in order to prevent the situation from escalating further. Wilson says that the players will deliver in the next match against Nottingham Forest.

“The fans are passionate and have every right to be. When you get results like this, it’s not very easy to take. In the first half an hour they were singing our names. That’s football. The fans wanted us to win; it was a derby game and you can’t argue with them at times. You have to understand they have followed the club through thick and thin and you have to respect their opinions at times,” said Wilson, whose team have just one win in the last five.
