Stendel: "Confidence is very high."

Gaffer's thoughts after Chairboys success

17 February 2019

Barnsley secured a sixth consecutive home victory against a spirited Wycombe Wanderers in Saturday's latest Sky Bet League One fixture, and Daniel Stendel was naturally pleased with his side's form when he spoke to the press after the game on Saturday.

The Reds registered yet another home victory against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday to extend their unbeaten run to 12 games. They are now five points clear of Portsmouth in 3rd, who blew a 3-0 lead at Southend to draw 3-3.

Barnsley FC Head Coach, Daniel Stendel was understandably pleased with the weekend when he spoke post-match.

“It was another very good three points for us, especially after the draws from Sunderland and Portsmouth,” he told the assembled media.

“We don’t really look at the teams that are behind us but the team in front of us which in this moment is Luton.

"It’s important that we win our games then it doesn’t matter what other teams do. The confidence is very high after the last weeks but we are not speaking too much about it.

"We just focus on playing and winning.”

Wycombe Report

The last time Stendel's side were beaten was against Wycombe in early December. 

It's been nine victories and three draws since then as Barnsley gun for an immediate return to the second tier.

Stendel was honest about that December 8 reverse at Adams Park and said that whilst Saturday's 2-1 win wasn't the best display, it was always enough.

“Wycombe is not our favourite team to play against." Stendel admitted.

"The first game against them was probably our worst performance this season, we were too lazy and we only really had one chance in 90 minutes.

"I told the players we needed to be attacking in this game all the time and we would win.

“We didn’t have our best day today, we seemed a little bit tired I think, but we still won which was our goal. It was not a nice game but it was a deserved win, we did enough.”
