Moore uses his head to earn win for Reds

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL - Barns­ley:

MAN­AGER Daniel Sten­del hailed Ki­ef­fer Moore’s per­fect tim­ing af­ter his late header earned Barns­ley all three points at Oak­well.

Southend had ac­tu­ally started the bet­ter of the two teams and could have taken the lead in the open­ing 15 min­utes.

Af­ter good build-up play, Tay­lor Moore crossed to Harry Bunn who headed straight at goal­keeper Adam Davies from six yards out.

In a tight first half, the home side’s best chances to take the lead came on the stroke of half­time when Alex Mowatt and Brad Potts both went close.

The vis­i­tors thought they might have got the win­ning goal 10 min­utes be­fore the end, but Si­mon Cox’s ef­fort was ruled out for off­side. How­ever, it was Barns­ley who grabbed all three points in the 87th minute as Moore headed home Alex Mowatt’s cor­ner from close range.

“It is the ba­sic for us to take points in home games,” saidS­ten­del.

“It is also im­por­tant for our fans that we give a lit­tle bit back to our sup­port­ers who give us great sup­port at away games.

“This is our task that we give our sup­port­ers points when we play home games.

“It was also in the last minute, which makes it hap­pier than when we score in the first end.

“I’m happy that we won the game and it’s a nice feel­ing when you score two min­utes be­fore the end. I thought in the sec­ond half that we were the only team try­ing to win the game.

“In the first half Southend played very well but I think that we showed we wanted to win.”
