Barnsley FC goalkeeper Brad Collins has urged the club’s fans to stick with the players as they bid to pull off a great escape.

“Stick with us,” pleaded Collins, who has been an ever-present for Barnsley in the Championship this term.

“We are trying and we believe in each other. We'll fight to the very last game."

“I know for sure we're definitely not the worst team in this league. Look at us last year, coming fifth, that's why we believe.”

The Reds previously found themselves nine points from safety with 14 games left to play in the 2019/20 season, though they had amassed eight more points than they currently have.

They stayed up that year, owing to Wigan Athletic’s 12-point deduction for entering administration, and went on to make the play-offs last term.

“At the moment it looks tight between four teams,” former Chelsea stopper Collins, now 25, said of the relegation scrap.

"Football is a funny game, a lot can change, a lot can happen so we just take it game by game.”

Hull, who are twentieth in the table, are without a win in their last five matches and have lost three of those.

Despite their poor form they are 13 points clear of relegation danger, however.
