Swansea manager Roberto Martinez:
“The first half is the most sluggish we’ve been this season, we never got going.

“The second half we didn’t start well at all and Barnsley took advantage and we got heavily punished.

“Then all of a sudden we click again and we played the best football at the end.

“Joe (Allen) coming in and made a huge influence from midfield… Jason Scotland’s performance deserved a hat-trick.”

Barnsley boss Simon Davey:

“I’m frustrated we let a goal with 15 seconds to go and that hurts.

“I felt we came to Swansea, who are a good side especially at home, and had a game plan and it worked.

“We got ourselves 2-0 in front and we looked comfortable, then the game changed.

“We gave [Jason] Scotland too much room. I warned the players before the game and at half time and unfortunately they didn’t take it on board and we’ve been punished.”
