Alex Mowatt has failed to impress Barnsley supporters, after struggling during their match against Huddersfield Town yesterday.
Mowatt joined Barnsley from Leeds United during the January transfer window, and got sent off on debut for the Tykes.
The attacking midfielder returned from suspension yesterday, and was given a place in Paul Heckingbottam’s starting line-up.
However, Mowatt did not look impressive - with many of the criticisms Leeds fans had of him being repeated by Barnsley fans in attendance at Oakwell.
Mowatt only lasted just over an hour, before being replaced, and Barnsley fans were not particularly impressed by their new signing's display.
Got to take mowatt off at half time clearly unfit and keep running at mooy and he should be sent off #bfc— Danny Bowering (@DannyBow90) February 25, 2017
Armstrong, Mowatt, Jones. Might as well have sat next to me that first half. System ain't working.— Andy Kaye (@andybfc182) February 25, 2017
Not sure about Mowatt so far. Looks a yard slow— Connor (@Connor66Ritchie) February 25, 2017
Mowatt been non existent. Like to see Bradshaw at half time. Full backs offered no support going forward either. Really disappointing.— West Stand Bogs (@WestStandBogs) February 25, 2017
That mowatt is chasing shadows, no idea where he's supposed to be playing— Jamie Woodhall (@Woodhall_Jamie) February 25, 2017
Mowatt needs the ball at his feet, waste of time playing him if centre backs constantly miss him out and hoof it to Armstrong #BarnsleyFC— Luke Moore (@LMOfficialTwit) February 25, 2017
Mowatt's good on the ball but he looks a yard off the pace, reminds me of Goran Lovre— Aaron Lane (@aaronlane1989) February 25, 2017
James probs our best player so far. Decent passer creative side but not great. Mowatt ineffective at rm.— Andrew Hague (@tykesrus) February 25, 2017
Not sure i like Kent on dead balls.
Not sure about Mowatt yet and Kent still not won me over. Looked far better when subs were made. Great finish from Marley & Davies was class— Kieran Bestall (@Ramone78) February 25, 2017
Mowatt had fallen out of favour at Leeds prior to his departure from Elland Road, and needs to re-find his form at Barnsley.
The youngster had struggled to find his top level at Leeds in recent times, and insisted earlier this week that a move to Barnsley would be good for his career.
Barnsley are next in action on Saturday, when they take on Derby County at the iPro Stadium.
