The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Ross Law­son

BARNS­LEY boss Paul Heck­ing­bot­tom says his side is still a work in progress, though they may never quite be the fin­ished ar­ti­cle.

He’s con­vinced he has the qual­ity needed to com­pete in the di­vi­sion, but the Tykes are strug­gling to con­vert draws into vic­to­ries.

“The tal­ent’s there,” he said. “And they’re more than ca­pable of per­form­ing. We’ve seen that plenty of times al­ready this sea­son.

“We’ve shown that clin­i­cal, ruth­less side our­selves at times. We need to get back to that.

“A lot of clubs in this league have lots of money and have play­ers used to this level. Our play­ers are learn­ing, de­vel­op­ing.

“We are all about coach­ing and de­vel­op­ing them. Then, it’s down to the play­ers to buy into ev­ery­thing.”
