PRESS: Andy Yiadom Pre-Millwall.

16 March 2018

Barnsley captain Andy Yiadom is adamant that the team has enough quality to secure the Club’s Sky Bet Championship status at the end of the campaign.

The Reds came close to claiming a win on Tuesday night against Norwich City, but Oli McBurnie’s superb strike on the stroke of half-time was cancelled out by Jacob Murphy’s second half goal.
However, despite that setback, Yiadom believes that the character of the dressing room will play a large part as the season draws to close.
“We’ve got a few in there who have played a lot of games,” said Yiadom. "We all know the game plan and what we have to do, so we’ll try our best.
“We take every game as it comes, we all know the importance of each game. At the moment it’s just concentrating on staying up and that’s the main thing at the moment. We’re not going down and we’re going to do everything in our power.”
Performances in recent games have been encouraging from the Reds, and there is a sense of belief within the camp that the win that can act as a catalyst to reignite this campaign is just around the corner.
For long periods against Norwich, Barnsley dominated possession but were just unable to put the visitors to the sword at Oakwell.
“Some games haven’t gone our way, we just need to take each game as it comes and try to better it,” continued Yiadom. "I think, on Tuesday, we did that.
“We had a good chance to win the game. Coming off the pitch on Tuesday, it was disappointing - even though there were a lot of positives to take, it did feel disappointing because we wanted to get all three points, and we felt we could get all three points also.”
Neil Harris’ Millwall come to town on Saturday looking to further strengthen their play-off credentials and continue their fine run of form.
The Lions have picked up 16 points from their last six games, but Yiadom is confident that Barnsley can come away with a positive result this weekend.
“I think they’re on a decent run at the minute; they’ve been playing well,” admitted the skipper. "But at this stage of the season form goes out of the window.
“It all comes down to three points at the end of the day, it’s something that we really need and we’re going to try everything to get them.
“We try our best to concentrate on our own performance, concentrate on us and try to get the three points. We don’t want to be looking over our shoulder wondering what’s the score of this team, what’s the score of that team. We just want to concentrate on ourselves.”
