Barnsley manager stokes Robins ahead of Game

Barnsley manager stokes Robins ahead of Game

Barnsley manager, David Flitcroft, has raised the stakes ahead of the crunch Championship game between Huddersfield Town and Barnsley, kick-off 12:45.

Flitcroft reckons that Town manager Mark Robins will be 'Desperate' to beat Barnsley, after his previous spell at the club as manager was cut short in 2011 following a dispute over a budget cut.

Robins was replaced by Keith Hill and Flitcroft at the helm, with Flitcroft taking full charge earlier this season following the dismissal of Hill.

Flitcroft, speaking with the Barnsley Chronicle, said :-

'I think Mark will be desperate to beat us because he spent time here and it's his old club. He'll send his team out to beat us. But we're not thinking about Mark Robins, we're thinking about us.'

Robins himself has remained tight-lipped on his feelings ahead of the game, but reaffirmed his commitment is to Huddersfield Town and that his aim, as always, is to win the game.

Robins spoke at Thursday's pre-match press conference and said:-

'All I will say is that I was employed there for a while, but no longer. I enjoyed my time at Barnsley, but now my focus is very much on Huddersfield.

'Give credit to Barnsley and David Flitcroft because, since he's taken over, they've been a good side who have picked up points. We know it won't be easy, but nor will it be for Barnsley.'


Allegedly Barnsley reporters were banned from the Thursday press-conference.

Barnsley's won on their last visit to Huddersfield in the League One play-off semi-final second leg in 2006, which Huddersfield had taken a 1-0 led into from the game at Oakwell, a fateful defeat watched y yours truly from Corfu at the time.

Barnsley will be backed by a sold-out contingent of 4,000 Tykes as they aim desperately to avoid the drop, needing a win or a point and hoping that results elsewhere go their way.
