Barnsley boss Paul Heckingbottom believes there couldn't have been too many complaints had his side managed to go on and grab another goal after their last-gasp equaliser secured a point against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Owls had gone in front through former Barnsley striker Sam Winnall who swapped Oakwell for Hillsborough in January and was making his first return to the Reds' home.

However, as Heckingbottom's men pressed in the latter stages for an equaliser, Angus MacDonald headed in an Adam Hammill cross to secure a point they at least deserved and with Keiren Westwood making a fine stop and Morgan Fox clearing off the line, the home side could well have gone on to win it.

"I would have been upset if we had not got something out of the game, but I would have been delighted if we had got three points with the chances at the end," said Heckingbottom.

"It shows the spirit in the team. What could go wrong did go wrong, but it shows the spirit and determination to come out and get something out of the game.

"We know Wednesday are a good side with the ball so we did a lot of work on our shape and I was pleased with it.

"The second half had a lot of tactical shifts and changes in momentum. There were a lot of positives in terms of attitudes and application from the players today.

"If you cut the errors out it would have been a good win for us, so we take the positives whilst still looking at where we can improve.

"I'm proud and pleased for them becasue there are lot's of positive to be taken out of that game. We have to be satisfied with a point but I think it wouldn't have been harsh if we had taken three at the end."
