The Barnsley manager Keith Hill has said that individual mistakes from the team in a number of areas of the pitch as a result for them being closer to the relegation zone. Barnsley recently were at the end of another defeat after the 2-1 score against Cardiff. However, both the goal scored by Cardiff came as a result of a corner kick routine that was not defender properly by Barnsley. They left the goal scorers Aron Gunnarsson and Ben Nugent unmarked for both the goals. This has infuriated the manager Keith Hill, who has been under pressure for quite a while.
Keith Hill has overseen a terrible form at Barnsley, which has seen the club slip to the 20th position in the table after having just two victories in the last three months. They are also just two points above the relegation zone and will slip into this trap if results do not improve. However, it did not show any signs of improving in the recent match against promotion chasing Cardiff, who managed a 2-1 victory. Hill has praised the performance of the goalkeeper Luke Steele by saying that he was excellent, but the team has let him down because of the bad defending. Even though the difference between the two teams was marginal, it will not be reflected on the table according to Hill.
“Everything is marginal, they are top of the league and we are near the bottom. We have let (goalkeeper) Luke Steele down. He has made two matchwinning saves and we conceded from both corners and the players are responsible for the individual mistakes they have made. The individual errors cost you and that is the difference between the cream and the elite and us at this moment in time,” said Hill after the Cardiff match.
