KEITH Hill remains encouraged his Barnsley side have enough quality to retain their Championship status this season.

And the Reds’ boss is confident if the club can make sure of their status in the second tier of English football for a sixth successive season then the “building blocks” for future success should follow.

“I’m very encouraged by what I’m seeing, I think it’s becoming evident the type of football I like to play,” Hill told The Star.

“I’m trying to stamp my identity on this football club. We’re trying to recreate a football club and that’s starting to take shape.

“There haven’t been too many bad performances this season, but it [football] is a results driven business.

“But what I’m asking for is the supporters to be patient with what we’re trying to create here. I’m asking them not to overlook we’re not financially flush and we’re working with tighter budgets that were in place last season.

“I could spend money, leave the club in debt and get a new job. But I’m not going to.”
