Neill Collins is hoping the 5-1 home defeat to Lincoln does not have a lasting impact on his Barnsley team but admits they will miss the suspended Herbie Kane in the next two matches.

Kane collected a tenth booking of the season so will be banned for Tuesday’s trip to Carlisle and Saturday’s home game with Cheltenham. He had been on nine bookings for nine games.

Head coach Collins said: “He will be a big miss. He’s been fantastic. He’s done well to get to this point. The referee booked a lot of our players for not a lot. It’s an opportunity for someone else.”

Collins is hopeful his players will respond well to the 5-1 loss.

“Our players have been really resilient. I am sure the lads have lost like that before. It’s a bad one but we need to make sure it’s nothing more than a loss and three points lost.

“If we had lost 1-0 and had not been able to break them down it would have been the same number of points. We need to learn lessons. We don’t need to over analyse because those mistakes were uncharacteristic of some players.”
