Jacob Butterfield: Believes there is great spirit at Barnsley and feels a play-off push is within reach
Barnsley captain Jacob Butterfield believes the club can aim towards the Championship play-offs following an impressive run of form.
The Tykes' 2-1 victory at Leeds United on Saturday was a third in four games for Keith Hill's side and leaves them in 14th position on 24 points.
However, Barnsley are just three points adrift of sixth-placed Blackpool in a congested table which sees only four points separate fifth spot from 15th.
Highly-rated midfielder Butterfield was delighted with the weekend's win at Elland Road and is feeling positive for the future.
Butterfield told the club's official website: "The fans will be buzzing. It's back-to-back victories for us now and hopefully we can go on a little run now.
"There's no reason why we can't be looking up towards the play-offs. I think the gaffer and Flicks (David Flitcroft) have come in and there's such a good atmosphere around the club.
"The lads really enjoy coming into training and everyone gets on really well.
"It shows on the pitch how everyone works so hard for each other. There's a great spirit and a lot of ability in the squad as well."
