Barnsley manager David Flitcroft admits that his side are feeling the strain of their fight against relegation from the Championship.

Barnsley manager David Flitcroft has admitted that he and his players are feeling the strain of their fight against the drop.

The Tykes conceded a last-minute goal from Paul Coutts in their 1-1 draw with Derby County, which saw them slip deeper into trouble in the relegation zone in the Championship.

"The players are feeling the pressure of the situation, there's no doubt about it," Flitcroft told reporters.

"Don't forget we got downed 6-0 at home [to Charlton on Saturday] and we've had two players sent off. That's still in the back of the players' minds.

"They didn't want to get smashed again. It was a brave performance, but we didn't get the result we wanted."

Barnsley are 23rd in the Championship with three games to play this season.
