I'm very wary of tomorrow's game. Despite winning 6 in a row we've not looked like world beaters in any of them, and we've been a little too reliant on set pieces, 6 of our 11 goals in that run coming from them. Our run of form has to come to an end at some point, but against a team near the bottom we have to be looking to win again with Preston, Bristol City and Sheff United coming up after.

If we defend as we have done in this run and nick a goal or two then we should win. But with Orient getting a morale-boosting win vs Yeovil on Saturday and looking to get out the bottom 4, we'll have to be at our best. Dagnall and Henderson up front will be a handful as well, the former works his bollocks off and the latter always scores against us. 7 wins in a row would just be a nonsense but I hope we manage it.

Why hombre?

Because we'll still go down!

Same side as Saturday I reckon except Baudry and maybe Dossena.

Dagnall Henderson

We are awful as a team defensively and awful at defending set plays. Yeovil were awful Saturday, hence why we won. Don't care, we're down anyway.​

No way we're making it 7 in a row. Score draw.

I remember watching Darren Barnard play on left midfield, he was a good player as well. Whats Clint Marcellle up to these days?

Dave Watson is the England goalkeeping coach.....!

Don't know, not heard much about him since the demise of AFC Barnsley.

Point away from home never to be sniffed at. One goal conceded in 7 games... :ds:

We edged the game but only created one clear chance. Hedges and Henderson caused Barnsley a few problems.

Barnsley looked alright and kept the ball well, but came for the draw I thought, only a Hourihane free kick was their best effort. Declan John the stand out player.

Awful tackle from Lalkovic at the end and a deserved red card.

Tut tut Milan. Wouldn't mind him back. Never backing Barnsley again, they almost cost me either way.

Odd that we don't score for the first time in ages with Winnall starting the game, but I'll take a point as it sounds like we were under the cosh as lot of the game. Can't be disappointed with another clean sheet as well. Going to need to be a lot better to get anything vs Preston on Saturday though.
