Flitcroft: Thought Barnsley deserved it

Barnsley caretaker manager David Flitcroft praised Danny Rose after the teenage striker's first senior goal secured a 1-0 FA Cup third round win over 10-man Burnley.

Substitute Rose struck five minutes from time when Clarets goalkeeper Brian Jensen could only touch Scott Golbourne's overhit cross onto the crossbar and back into the 19-year-old's path.

The visitors were forced to play the majority of the tie a man down after midfielder Brian Stock was shown a second yellow card in the 37th minute for a cynical shirt pull on Jim O'Brien.

Flitcroft said: "We deserved the result, the lads deserved the result, there's no doubt about that. The work that the boys have put in...

"I was made up for Danny Rose getting the winning goal, he's somebody who will score goals for this football club and today he's got a real important one.

"This boy, once he grows into his body, he's going to be some player and some goalscorer for this football club.

"We've protected him and kept him where he's at. And Danny Rose will be all right for this experience."

He added: "I'm delighted for the boys, they've worked hard, they've fought well and today they've stuck to the task. They stood up to everything Burnley threw at them."

Burnley boss Sean Dyche was unhappy with Stock's dismissal and felt his side were in control until referee Paul Tierney produced the red card.

The former Doncaster midfielder picked up his first yellow following an altercation with Tykes striker Marlon Harewood as Barnsley prepared to take a free-kick in the 25th minute.

Dyche said: "It was inflicted out of our hands today.

"We were in control of the game and not even at our best but still in control up until the sending off and, to be honest, contained the game well, even after the sending off.

"Referee's have a job to do and it's very difficult but the first booking is unfathomable on Brian Stock. I've seen it five times and he's nothing to do with it, I don't even get it.

"Harewood comes in and gives a push in the back of the head, I'm amazed our player gets booked, I've seen it so I'm even more amazed.

"He (Harewood) gave him a little nudge on his head and, as far as I knew, the rules state that that's off.

"Referees have a tough job but I think he's got it clearly wrong today and the first booking then leads to, you're always on that knife-edge after that.

"I've got no problems with the second because it happens, that's the rules. The first one I think it stunned everyone, you can sometimes tell by the reaction in the crowd.

"I'm convinced if we're 11 v 11 we go on and win the game."
