BARNSLEY boss Keith Hill is hoping his side will “come out fighting” after the weekend’s forgettable 5-1 drubbing at the hands of Brighton.

Doubles from Craig Mackail-Smith and Ashley Barnes, as well as Wayne Bridge’s first league goal in almost nine years did the damage while Craig Davies’ third goal in four games was the only small ray of light for the Reds.

“There’s times like this that can only make you stronger,” said Hill, whose side take on Premier League Swansea City in the second round of the Capital One Cup tomorrow night.

“You’ve got to look everybody in the eye and make sure we come out fighting in our next game. We witnessed a team of players that made every mistake in the book.

“It’s a difficult day for me as a manager because it’s a case of standing up and being accountable for my position at the club.”
