Neill Collins praised his side for chalking up their tenth away win of the season with a 4-2 success at Wycombe Wanderers and hopes there are several more to come in the promotion chase.

The hosts took the lead twice but Sam Cosgrove and Donovan Pines levelled before Corey O’Keeffe and Conor Grant won it either side of a red card for David Wheeler.

Collins said: “I will focus on the positives because there are more of them than negatives. The resilience we showed after going behind twice was fantastic. The quality of play when we put it together caused Wycombe problems and some of our goals were excellent.

“Winning at a club that have been really good at home recently is pleasing.

“There are clearly a couple of negatives. We gave a couple of goals away then at 4-2 we gave up chances through poor choices. I don’t know if we would have done at that at 11v11 because it can be awkward (playing against ten men).

“I want to be part of a team that can come from behind, can score goals away from home, play on the front foot and excite fans. We want to cut out mistakes but players haven’t been guilty of that too often.”

It was Barnsley’s tenth away win of the season in front of 822 away fans.

Collins said: “The players have impressed me with their understanding of what’s required away from home. They have done a really good job on that. Ten wins away is fantastic and we want a few more this season.

“Fantastic backing from our fans. They were so boisterous all game. We love that. I am really looking forward to the away games before the end of the season because they have a team to be proud about and sing about.”

Captain Jordan Williams added: "It was whirlwind. We weren't at our best but we dug in and scored four. Credit to the lads. That shows the confidence in the group. When we go behind, we’re not beaten. When we showed quality, we picked them off."

Cosgrove levelled on the stroke of half-time, having been brought back into the team.

Collins said: “When we put clips together on the game, Sam was cropping up a lot with his hold-up play and being a nuisance in the box. He was unfortunate not to play last week but we felt Macca (John McAtee) would suit Derby more. Sam was always scheduled to play today, and I am glad he got another goal.”

Pines got the second equaliser with his first goal in English football.Collins said: “I am really pleased for Donovan who I thought was excellent. Coming into this climate against a tough team, he was really really good.”

O’Keeffe got what proved to be the winner, playing out of position at left wing-back. Collins said: “Corey has really pushed hard in training. Jordan Williams coming back into his right wing back slot has pushed him out, maybe not deservedly but it’s my decision. He’s responded great and is a key part of this group. I really enjoy working with him. For him to get the important goal was really pleasing.”

Substitute Grant made it 4-2 with his first goal for the club. Collins said: “Conor has done really well in training. He was excellent. He has a big role to play as all the players do. The goal was a bit of class.”

Nicky Cadden missed the game through illness but could return on Tuesday at home to Bolton, while McAtee was out with a back problem. Collins said: “I don’t think McAtee will be available for Tuesday but hopefully it’s nothing longer than that.”

Josh Earl mishit a clearance for the opener then thought the ball had gone out of play when Wycombe made it 2-1.

Collins said: “Josh Earl has been outstanding for us. He was really good in spells today but made a couple of little mistakes. We scored the goals to get him out of it. There will be other times when Josh Earl gets other people out of a jam.”
