'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Barnsley boss fumes at Brown tackle

Barnsley boss Keith Hill has accused Leeds United midfielder Michael Brown of deliberately intending to hurt Jacob Butterfield.

Brown`s tackle forced Butterfield off after fifteen minutes of the clash at Oakwell on Saturday, with the Barnsley captain suffering knee ligament damage.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Post, Hill said, "It happens in football but he knows what he is doing 100 per cent.
"He has left a little bit on Jacob when the whistle has gone. He`s an excellent clever player (Brown) but he`s done a job on Jacob Butterfield and we can`t get away from that. They have deployed a tactic and it has worked."


Butterfield is now expected to be missing for Barnsley for around three weeks following the challenge and Hill says it is a challenge that 34-year-old Brown may have got away with early in his career but has no place in the modern game.
"His challenge was an 'old pro`s` challenge and I am not condoning it.
"It was one that me or Flicker (Barnsley`s assistant manager David Flitcroft) would have made in the past.

"It does belong in the past and we have fallen foul of it. The referees don`t really understand that kind of challenge,"
continued Hill.

Brown escaped without a caution in the game.

The New Year also brings into effect the 10 yellow card rule before suspension.

Saturday was the final day any player could be suspended for one game following their fifth booking of the season.

Only Darren O`Dea served a one-match suspension in the first half of the season for five yellow cards.

O`Dea is leading the way for cautions this season, picking up his sixth of the season in the clash at Barnsley on Saturday.

Any player who collects ten yellow cards on or before April 8th will serve a two-match suspension.
