BARNS­LEY boss Lee John­son in­sists he does not fear for his job and wants to re­main at the Oakwell helm for a long time to come.

The Tykes went into this week­end on the back of four con­sec­u­tive league de­feats, sit­ting just one point off the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

And with three of the five clubs sit­ting be­low Barns­ley in the ta­ble hav­ing al­ready parted com­pany with their man­agers this sea­son, the pres­sure is on the 34-yearold’s shoul­ders to de­liver.

“I love this place,” he stressed. “I hope I am go­ing to be here for a long time be­cause I want to de­liver what ev­ery­one wants.

“I’ve made mis­takes this year and pos­si­bly cost us a few points through some tac­ti­cal de­ci­sions, but I think I have won us games through some other ones.

“But what I would say is I am as de­ter­mined as any­one. I still be­lieve mas­sively in the group.

“I be­lieve we need one or two of the right ilk to aid and ben­e­fit the group.

“For what­ever rea­son we haven’t been able to get those cou­ple that could be the miss­ing in­gre­di­ents.”
