    Brilliant.
    As was O'Brien, Dagnall, Stones and Kennedy.
    Foster just gets on with it, no dramas.
    And that elbow was a sending off .... seems everyone missed it.
    Still, we can't complain about the ref tonight...

    Agreed, Foster was everything a centre half should be, outstanding tonight.

    Excellent wasn't he. Won everything. But like you said, he wasn't alone, there were a number of first class performances.

    I'd also like to add Etuhu to that list. By far his best game in a Barnsley shirt. Maybe he's found his position. Don't know if I'd back him if it turned in to a proper battle, but he did very well tonight.

    I thought the elbow or hand was accidental, he got poked in the eye but still managed to catch the ball??!!

    Yes, he did OK at Hull, but tonight he was even better. I've been a huge critic, so happy to see him proving me wrong.

    He seems to have developed a bit of spirit. Impressed me tonight compared to his other outings I've witnessed

    Glad you've brought this up, because I thought Foster was excellent tonight. I thought he was unlucky to be left out of the team recently, particularly as McNulty was managing to retain his place despite some poor performances.

    I also thought Daggers and Perkins were more deserving of the MOTM award than JOB. JOB worked hard and played a big part in the first goal, but for me too often he does the hard work but has no end product. He's often guilty of poor decision making when it matters. Stones was also excellent today.

    And the partnership up front continues to impress. Harewood and Daggers really work for each other and with Scotland and Rose too we are starting to look like we have some options up front at last.

    He's getting better but agree about the battle point; Dawson for me everytime.
