Neill Collins was pleased Barnsley came from behind to win for the first time in more than two years at Reading on Saturday but now wants them to stop conceding early goals.

The Reds came from 1-0 down to win 3-1 in Berkshire on Saturday - the first time they won from behind since November 2021.

They have conceded the opening goal in four of their last five league games, three of them in the opening five minutes.

Head coach Collins told the Chronicle: “Coming from behind is something we’ve been threatening to do. We’ve come from behind to draw.

“We have taken the lead from behind but not quite got over the line.

“Can we stop going behind early now? That would be a big help. We will work on getting the early goals.”

Fabio Jalo, 18, came off the bench to set up the third goal for fellow substitute Max Watters. Collins said: “Fabio has been pushing and he’s got quality. He’s young and we have to keep our expectations right. He has a lot of growing up to do but to beat a man and square it for Max was exceptional.”
