Manager Nathan Jones was pleased his side were able to turnaround their fortunes to complete a comeback victory against Wycombe Wanderers this afternoon.

The gaffer wasn’t best pleased after his side went into the half-time a goal down, but a mixture of second half changes and a red card to Josh Knight helped Town towards an eighth away win of the season.

“We felt at half-time we were nowhere near it first-half,” the manager admitted. “We didn’t display any kind of quality and we said against Wycombe we have to show quality because endeavour wise you have to match them because they are full of endeavour.

"We had to demonstrate any kind of quality that we have and we didn’t do that. We brought on real quality and it showed, some will say the sending off changed the game, I’m sure it helped 100 per cent but I think half-time actually helped the most. We regrouped, changed the shape a little bit and personal and started on the front foot. I thought we were excellent first half.

“I needed to get a reaction from this group, we come up against a very good side in Barnsley because they’re doing it to everyone. They are just overrunning teams and sooner or later people are going to realise what they do.

“Today was slightly different and what we worked on all week was showing quality. Being brave and showing quality, when we get opportunities taking them. Good balls into the box, into the right areas, not crossing for a goal kick or hitting the first man.

“We added quality second half, Kiernan was excellent, he was only out because he had a sore back but I thought we demonstrated real control second half.”
