The home side dominated the game and was rewarded when Ben Brereton Diaz scored the winner five minutes after the hour mark.

Managers Reaction

Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “I think Ben’s matured rather than improved. He’s always been a good player. We signed him as an 18-year-old boy, with Danny Graham and Bradley Dack starring for the team. What has happened is the external pressures of living in a dressing room with senior players and people who have had great careers and huge personalities, it can suppress a young guy, and as those personalities have left the dressing room – for lots of different reasons – Brereton, as he’s grown from an 18-year-old to a 22-year-old, he’s just matured into a man.”

Barnsley’s Poya Asbaghi: “We started well in the first 10-15 minutes, created some chances. Then, after those minutes we played into Blackburn’s hands. What has made them have really good form is their counter-attacks and we were playing into their hands, in really vulnerable positions to lose the ball. Obviously, 1-0 for them was logical for them, but then we got a good equalizer from Morris.”
