The Gaffer's Take


Speaking to iFollow Barnsley, Michael Duff said:

"I know them really well - they were our local rivals at Cheltenham. I know the owner, Dale (Vince) quite well. I used to go there quite a lot to watch games, he'd always welcome me into the boardroom. The way the club is run is completely different to other football clubs. 

"They've had a difficult season. You look at the last two home games, they got beat by Derby - but being brutally honest, I don't know how we've lost the game. The home game before that, they beat Sheffield Wednesday. They're not going down without a fight."

Opposition View


Speaking ahead of the clash, Duncan Ferguson said: "We’ve had a tough run, Barnsley have lost two in 16, they’re direct, two strikers, good pace about them so we have our hands full. They’re all hard games, we’ve proven we can compete, we haven’t really proven we can get three points but we need to get over the line."

We wish a safe journey to all Reds fans making the trip to the Bolt New Lawn on Saturday!
