Barnsley boss Robins hails Everton, Newcastle target Hammill in Portsmouth win

Barnsley boss Mark Robins hailed matchwinner Adam Hammill after victory over Portsmouth.

Hammill - who has been linked with Everton and Newcastle United - was at the heart of every Tykes move and the former Liverpool man netted the winner in the 13th minute.

The 22-year-old took his goal with aplomb and the playmaker was only denied more by a superb individual display from Pompey keeper Jamie Ashdown.

Robins was quick to praise Hammill as his team recorded a third consecutive win.

He said: "I thought Adam Hammill's goal was a great goal.

"He started the move off, got the ball played back to him and he tied himself up and smashed it in.

"He had a couple of other efforts. He's a talent and at the moment he's on fire.

"He's adding things to his game all the time - hopefully he will stay with us until he's ready to go somewhere else."
