Barnsley boss David Flitcroft was keen to wax lyrical about his side's performance following their 2-0 win over Leicester.

A Michael Keane own goal and one from Sheffield Wednesday loanee Chris O'Grady were enough to ensure the Tykes climbed back out of the bottom three.

Veteran striker Jason Scotland also saw his second-half penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel and Flitcroft insisted it could have been a lot more.

"It could have been four, five, six. The two goals, I'd love to see them again. The passing, the intricacy, wow. I wish we were watching them on telly," he said. "We could have been talking about a huge scoreline because that's how much we dominated Leicester. We were brilliant.

"The top teams want to play you, they've got great players. Leicester are a team of superb individuals but we didn't let them play.

"I've talked a lot about the fight and the spirit in recent weeks but I'm talking about the football. It was a relentless approach.

"It's an honour to be a manager on a day like this. Our football was just exhilarating. If I'm being honest I didn't expect us to get up to those kind of levels after being bombarded on Saturday."

Disappointed Foxes boss Nigel Pearson agreed with his counterpart after hearing Flitcroft's view on the final score.

"I think he would be quite correct in that. We were way off the mark, the entirety of the first half was very poor. We remain a side that has too many players out of form at the moment. Collectively you can still negotiate these types of games but we're not doing that.

"I don't feel that we are making enough good decisions during the game. It was not a very good performance at all. We're at that stage of the season where we've worked hard to get into a position and over the last two months, not always through playing badly, but we've had to many days where we've simply not done enough."
