Swansea Born Barnsley Boss Aims To Frustrate Us

Swansea Born Barnsley Boss Aims To Frustrate Us

Barnsley manager Simon Davey brings his tykes to Ninian Park tonight and is hopeful of securing a victory by frustrating the Bluebirds and allowing the fans to get on the players backs.


Many teams have shown up at Ninian Park looking to contain, and maybe hit us on the break. QPR last week were no different and succeeded after we appeared to lack any invention. That day, the fans were wuiet but should City continue in the same vein - the tension and discontent will be rife - crazy really when you think of the position we're in for fans not to be 100% behind the team.


Of tonight's game, Simon Davey said:

'Cardiff City are a side going for promotion. They're a good team with some excellent players who perform in an effective way.

'We have to go there and stop that and try to get a result. I'm confident we can go there and get a win that we need more than them.

'We will look to go to Cardiff and quieten their supporters, frustrate them and come away with a victory.'



It's perfectly predictable. Barnsley will be reasonably confident following our lack of goals though they will know they must be at their best. As the game continues, they will grow in confidence and if the Bluebirds fans don't support the players - it could prove a fruitless night and cause more frustration. An early goal for us would be perfect tonight, a defeat would be devastating.
