Australian Kenny Dougall has impressed in his return to the English Championship after sitting for seven months with a broken leg.
Dougall broke his leg playing for the Tykes in March this year.
On Saturday the defensive midfielder finally got back on the park, putting in a dominant display as Barnsley held Swansea to a 1-1 draw.
Dougall told The Barnsley Chronicle: "Whenever you don’t win there is always a bit of disappointment. We were on top for most of the first half and had to score but ultimately we didn’t. It’s been a while since we got a point so we’ll take that.
“Swansea are flying and it looked tough when we went one down but we showed that, whatever gets thrown at us, we deal with it. Al scored a good goal and if anyone was going to win it at the end it was us.
"Overall, it was a great performance after the couple of weeks we have had."
His performance in his first game back from injury was hailed by many Barnsley fans on social media.
Dougall and Diaby made a massive difference to us today. Kenny like a new signing, man of the match by a long way for me. Well in Kenneth

Today highlights how poor Stendel’s tactics were in this league. Been crying out for 5 at the back for weeks. Also Kenny Dougall is the best player at the club

The 26-year-old, originally from Brisbane, joined the south Yorkshire club from Sparta Rotterdam last year.
His performances in League One had put him on the radar of Socceroo boss Graham Arnold.
