David Flitcroft says that Barnsley were a match for one of the Championship's "better teams" in Ipswich Town at Portman Road last night.

Barnsley manager David Flitcroft has praised his team's second-half showing against Ipswich Town.

The Tykes trailed by Daryl Murphy's goal after 45 minutes at Portman Road, but Jim O'Brien's 70th-minute strike salvaged a point for the Yorkshire side.

"The second half display's as good as we've seen all season," the 39-year-old told the club's official website.

"I don't want to underestimate what we've come up against here - this is a very, very good team. I think their position in the table's false.

"We've more than matched one of the better teams in the league. It was a brave performance second half and we have to show that bravery for longer periods."

Barnsley are 22nd in the Championship, although they are level on 10 points with Bolton Wanderers.
