Reds midfielder Josh Scowen has thanked the Barnsley supporters for an 'unreal' reception he received on Saturday against Rochdale.
The 22-year-old returned to action for the first time since November 7th, when he picked up a knee injury against Altrincham in the FA Cup.
Speaking to barnsleyfc.co.uk, Scowen said of the huge roar he received on his return, "It was quite scary really! It was a great feeling to hear that massive cheer. I'm grateful to the fans and everyone in the medical department for helping me get back. It was unreal.
"Sedgey (Craig Sedgwick - Head Physiotherapist) has been helpful and got me through, I'm grateful to him and Vikki (Stevens, Assistant Physiotherapist) for their help."
Scowen came on as a 79th-minute substitute at 3-1 as the Reds then went on to make it six against the Dale.
"I thought 'who's behind me!?'," he laughed. "I've never had anything like that before. Thanks a lot to the fans for giving me a great welcome back.
"I'm not a player to try and hold back just because I was injured. If something happens again, it happens again. I'll carry on playing the way I was before I got injured and keep going."
