Barnsley midfielder Conor Hourihane is not resting on his laurels.

The Irishman has already bagged 10 goals this season after an impressive start to his Oakwell career.

But the former Plymouth Argyle play-maker wants more success – personally and as a team.

“I’m not one for standing still and thinking about what I’ve done, I’m out there trying to improve” said Hourihane.

“I’m always looking to improve. I’m always doing extra finishing and extra little bits and pieces to improve because that’s the type of guy I am.

“I’m always looking to do better. There’s little things we need to improve on for sure, like when we’re up in games not conceding sloppy goals. But that’s all about improving as a team. It’s team shape not just the defence, we have 11 players out there and they all need to defend the goal.”

Meanwhile, Reds’ boss Danny Wilson has revealed he’s not worried even if his team go behind.

“We look like we’ve got goals in our team, so even if we do concede goals I always feel that we’ve got enough to get our noses back in front again,” said Wilson.

“However, if we want Utopia then we’ve got to stop conceding the goals.”
