Martin Jol felt Lee Barnard acquitted himself well in his Premiership debut as a substitute against Manchester United.

Reserve top scorer ‘Barney’ entered the fray at the Lane after 78 minutes with us trailing 2-1 and trying everything to find an equaliser.

Unfortunately we couldn’t carve out that final chance as we succumbed to only our second home defeat of the season.

"I thought Lee did well," said Head Coach Martin. "He used his body strength and physical presence and with Lee you never know what could happen because he’s a goalscorer, a goal poacher. He did what I hoped for and I believe in him."
