With the Capital One Cup tie with Everton less than 24 hours away, former Everton goalkeeper Adam Davies spoke to the media ahead of the clash.
The carrot for Barnsley would be to knock out their Premier League opposition and Davies is excited at the prospect of facing his former employers.
“I’m buzzing for the draw and hopefully I’ll play,” Davies said. “Nick Townsend played in the last game and I’m fit and will be ready for selection.
“I think we have to play the game and not the occasion, sticking to the game plan the gaffer’s got because we believe we can win the game.
“People can’t go into their shells because it’s a big game, we’ve still got to believe in ourselves and we’ve got some really good players here and hopefully we’ll be alright on the night.”
Looking back, the stopper said that his time with the club has helped him to develop his game and become Barnsley’s number one.
“Being able to train with some of the best players in the world was one of the best experiences for me, learning different things from other people,” Davies said.
“Tim Howard, Iain Turner, John Ruddy and Carlo Nash were there, a lot of players with plenty of games behind them so it was good to get experience from them.
“Every club I’ve been at and taken bits and bobs from people and tried to mould it into my game and now I’m at the age where I’m trying to put my stamp on my game.”
