David Flitcroft has stressed his Barnsley side will keep “chipping and chewing away” to get their season back on track.
“Fine margins in games does have an affect – and it has this season,” said Flitcroft, whose side have lost seven of nine games so far.
“We’re going to keep chipping and chewing away at what we’re doing.
“The new players we’ve brought in have definitely given us a spark. The players we’ve brought in have re-energised me and the squad.
“I’ve told the players that we’ve got to pick ourselves up and go again.
“There were times last season we had to and times this season that we’re going to have to do it again.
“We’re growing and developing into this season.”
