PRESS: José Morais Pre-Millwall.

15 March 2018

iFollow was on hand at Oakwell as José Morais previewed the weekend's game against Millwall.

Barnsley Head Coach José Morais believes that the goals will start to flow having seen his side come close to claiming a vital three points against Norwich City on Tuesday evening.
 
The Reds face play-off chasing Millwall at the weekend knowing that a win could see them move six points clear of the relegation zone, depending on results elsewhere.
 
“I am seeing more from the team in an attacking sense,” said Morais. "I am seeing the team creating more opportunities and more chances. I am seeing more players coming into scoring situations.
 
"In the last game, Mamadou Thiam had a good opportunity to score, Kieffer Moore had a good opportunity to score, and players from midfield coming into positions where they can shoot from distance with good possibilities to score. So things are progressing in the way that I was expecting.”
 
Neil Harris’ side are unbeaten in the league since a 2-1 defeat at Carrow Road on New Year’s Day, but the Lions have lost on their last three visits to Oakwell.
 
Morais is confident that, following recent positive performances with little reward, Barnsley can pick up their first win at home since November.
 
“They are very strong, physically and win a lot of first and second balls,” continued the Head Coach.
 
"I think we are prepared; we are aware about what we can do, but we are more aware of our possibilities about what we can do and what we have to do, and what kind of attitude we have to have during the game for us to get three points. This is our only will and expectation. 
 
“I think in the last six games they always took points; they are successful in the way they play. We’re playing at home and have a good team, and we need to think that, at our house, we are the boss and we want to win the game.
 
"According to what we did in the last game, I believe that this is the minimum of the performance that we want to start with for us to get what we really want from the game, which is to win."
