Alex Mowatt of Barnsley looks dejected after being sent off

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.

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.
