CLAUDIO Gomes says Barnsley must ‘stay humble’ after ending their 13-match winless run.
The Reds beat QPR 1-0 on Saturday, cutting the gap to safety from eight point to five.
Midfielder Gomes, who was one of the better players, told the Chronicle: “It’s a tough situation. We have to stay humble and keep moving forward. We enjoyed it at the weekend but then we stay focused on what is happening after.
“I heard in the dressing room that it is five points, it is good but we have to focus on the next game. We don't think too much about the points because it can be dangerous.”
Gomes, 21, is on a season-long loan from Manchester City and has been a regular starter in recent weeks.
“I am pleased I came to this team because the staff and club wanted me. I am just working hard to show them that I am ready to play.”
January signing Domingos Quina got the only goal against QPR.
Gomes said: “He's a really good player in the midfield. He has good vision of football and on Saturday he did a really good game and scored. I am happy for him and he has to keep going in this way.”
Saturday’s win was the first in the league under head coach Poya Asbaghi.
Gomes said: “It's a tough situation for everyone including the manager, the good thing is everyone believed in what he said and what we were doing in training. I am happy for him, Ferran (Sibila, assistant) and the staff.
“It's been difficult for him and everyone else. It is easy to blame the manager every time but it is the players as well. We believe we can stay up with him. We have played well but we just didn't have the rhythm. People have just looked at the results but in terms of football and tactics we played really well.”
