Moncur: "On our day we can beat anyone."

4 October 2018

George Moncur is confident that Barnsley can achieve a positive result when they travel to Peterborough United this weekend.

The Reds are performing well on the road this season and picked up an impressive win at Fleetwood Town in their last away outing.

“We’ve picked up good points,” insisted Moncur. “I think we could have won a few more games when we’ve drawn – I think we’ve been unlucky, but that’s what you’ve got to do in this league and look forward to the next game and the three points.

“Peterborough are a good club and are doing well, but so are we. It’s going to be a tough game, but on our day we can beat anyone so, hopefully, we can get a win.”

Tuesday evening’s draw at home to Plymouth Argyle saw Daniel Stendel’s side tighten their grip on a top six place and can now close the gap to Peterborough with victory on Saturday.

Posh haven’t won at the ABAX Stadium since August and three points could potentially see the Reds climb to third in Sky Bet League One.

“With the Club being how we are at the moment, I think it’s a bit of a disappointment that we didn’t take all three points on Tuesday,” continued the midfielder. “But we can’t dwell on that and we look to Saturday to try and get the three points away from home.

“Even top teams have slips in results, but people who watch us and people who we play against will know how good we actually are, so it’s just about getting that performance level back up for Peterborough on Saturday.”

“If we can win our next two games then we’ll be right up there.”

Kieffer Moore has aided Barnsley’s cause this campaign with seven goals in ten league outings, while Mamdou Thiam’s contribution should also not go unnoticed.

The Senegalese forward has netted three times for the Reds, and Moncur has set himself personal targets as the season continues to progress. 

“I’d like to add more goals to my game – I’m playing on the left at the minute, which I enjoy because I get a lot of the ball and can come in on my right foot,” said the 25-year-old.

“I’m having a lot of chances but they’re just not going in at the moment, so if I can get some more goals – especially in the league, because I’ve only scored in the cups this season – that’s the main thing for me.”
