Wilson: We Go To Peterborough With Purpose & Confidence

16 October 2014

Reds Manager Danny Wilson caught up with Barnsley Player ahead of his side’s match at Peterborough on Saturday.

The Barnsley boss is only waiting on the fitness of winger Dale Jennings, who is hopeful of shaking off an ankle knock in time to face United at London Road.

“There’s only really Dale Jennings who has a little bit of a problem with his ankle so apart from that we’re okay,” said Wilson.

“It gives us options. On Sunday, looking at the bench, we could have changed the dynamic of the team.

“It’s been great and I hope we can continue with the injury free scenario. At this moment in time, we’re looking in good shape.”

Off the back of two league wins, Wilson wants more of the same from his side who came from behind to beat Bradford in front of the Sky cameras on Sunday.

“Results and wins are what make sure you gain confidence,” he added.

“I didn’t think we have been and as some people have tied to make out.

“Overall, I’ve been delighted and the lads have gained that great confidence from winning against your local rivals. They gave a good account of themselves.

“There was never any question about the character of the players, we’ve just got to be patient with them. There will be certain ups and downs with them.

“You have to understand and bear with them, to a certain degree, and that’s what we do.”

Saturday’s opponents, Peterborough, sit second in the league having lost just once at London Road.

“We go and play our game,” continued Wilson. “We go there with a real purpose. We go there off the back of a win where we have a real confidence to try and exploit them in certain areas. We’re going there to win the game. We’re not going there to sit back and soak up pressure and try and hit them on the break.

“We’re capable of going down to London Road and winning and that’s how we’ll approach it. We respect what they’ve got, we respect they’ve got some very good players in their team.

“Overall, we know it’s going to be a very tough game for us. They’re off the back of a very good win against Crawley.

“It doesn’t put any fear into us whatsoever. I’m quite looking forward to us going down to pit our wits against them.”
