Cameron McGeehan is looking forward to facing former club Luton Town when they visit Oakwell for our Sky Bet League One clash on Saturday.
The Reds’ midfielder had two loan spells with the Hatters before moving to Kenilworth Road from Norwich City permanently in 2015, where he spent two seasons prior to joining Barnsley.
“They gave me my chance when I was a young lad making my way in the game – the first steps of my career – so it was a big club for me,” said McGeehan.
"I have lots of memories from Kenilworth Road; it was a really good time in my career and got me my move here, so it’s all fond memories. They’ve got really good fans, a great manager and a good set of lads – a lot of my old friends and teammates still play there, so I’m looking forward to seeing the boys.
“They’re a very good team – obviously, I know a lot about them. They’ve got a very good manager and a unique style with a diamond formation, which is different to what we’ve played against. They’re doing well and taking the momentum from last year in League Two, and it’s going to be a good game.”
Following last weekend’s breath-taking 4-0 victory over Peterborough United, all eyes will be on South Yorkshire for the lunchtime kick-off as the Reds have an opportunity to climb to second in the table.
Luton, meanwhile, can propel themselves into the play-off places with three points on Saturday after an impressive start to life back in the third tier.
“It was a big performance against [Peterborough] a team near the top of the league; it puts a big marker down for everyone looking at us and it was a good reaction to the draw against Plymouth,” insisted the 23-year-old. “It puts us on the front foot and, hopefully, we can take it into the next games.
“It’s still early days in the season, but we want to be up there – we think we should be up there. We’ve definitely got the squad for it and we’ll be pushing to be up there, and a win puts us in a great spot.
“As a collective, we’ve got to demand a bit more from each other. It’s hard because teams come and sit in and make it difficult, so maybe we could show a bit more patience. But we’ve got to keep playing the way we are and teams like Luton won’t sit in on Saturday; they’ll have a go and that may suit us.”
