Barnsley boss wants upturn in fortunes


Barnsley boss Lee Johnson says he is determined to turn round the club’s recent bad fortune, which sees the Tykes languishing in League One’s relegation zone.

They are looking for their first win for just over a month when they are the visitors to Glanford Park this weekend.

He told The Star: “I’m very committed and desperate to turn our poor form around – as are all the players.

 “I still feel I’ve got a lot to prove, but I believe I can.

“I’m not feeling at my best because I want to do well and I really do believe I can bring success to this club.

“Football’s tough, but that’s why love it. You have spells like this as a manager and you have to stay strong to come through them.

“Being a manager is a difficult job, but that’s why there’s only so many people can do it.

“We’re all hurting because we’re not getting the results we want right now, but I don’t think we’re far off. It’s a case of fine tweaking and maybe adding in a couple of areas.

“It’s just been a really bad run, which has been horrible for all of us.”
