Barnsley v Peterborough reaction
Keith Hill admitted Barnsley deserved nothing from their 2-0 Championship defeat to Peterborough which cost them their unbeaten home record.
Peterborough opened the scoring in the second minute when George Boyd poked home after Shaun Brimley's header hit the post.
Eight minutes later they doubled their lead when Tyrone Barnett headed home after a cross from Tommy Rowe.
And Hill believed his side got what they deserved from the match.
He said: "We didn't deserve anything from this game. I thought Peterborough were excellent value for the points and I thought Boyd was outstanding. He is everything that I want from a player.
"Our performance players didn't perform.
"I am disappointed about losing the game but I am not going to throw myself off a bridge. I thought our effort deserved a goal but our performance tonight didn't deserve any points."
Hill added: "The goals and the timing of the goals went against us and helped them.
"We watched them on Saturday where they were excellent value and tonight we knew it was coming.
"We never got the ball moving and we didn't have any urgency. Our players have got to remind themselves of how we got the results earlier in the season. Our passing is better than that we did tonight."
Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson praised his team's work effort as they won their second game in three days.
He said: "It was a great start, Boyd scored early on and he could have got more.
"He gives us energy. I left him out of the side earlier and that is probably what he wanted.
"We have just beaten a good team tonight in Barnsley. They had the majority of possession and we waited and attacked them on the counter-attack.
"The effort put in tonight by the players was fantastic. Throughout the whole squad there's togetherness. The lads have come off the field exhausted. If I can get the commitment they won't have any complaints from me."
Ferguson looked forward to his side's next game at home to Nottingham Forest.
He added: "Saturday is a big game for us; if we can get a win on Saturday then we are back in business. It will be great week for us if we can cap it off with a win before the international break.
"We have done well so far this week. Tonight is our first clean sheet of the season."
Peterborough, unchanged from the weekend, made a flying start when defender Brisley's header came back off the post and Boyd pounced to sidefoot home the rebound from six yards.
The visitors stormed forward again soon after to increase their lead. Winger Rowe swung over a cross from the left and Barnett emphatically headed home his first goal of the season.
