Davey: Let's Get At Jaded Rangers

Barnsley boss Simon Davey is hoping that his Barnsley side can get at a weary QPR side early as they clash at the weekend.

Davey has been under pressure to get his side performing at Oakwell with the Tykes not able to win for their home support so far this year and indeed losing every game in January conceding 12 goals in the process.

He told the barnsleyfc.co.uk that his side should be looking to take an early advantage against an inconsistent QPR side that could be flagging after a tough test midweek.

He said: 'We have a lot of difficult games coming up starting with QPR this weekend. QPR are a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde team this season and were beaten by Ipswich but then managed to get a good point at Cardiff. They have a fantastic squad but are capable of a bad result now and again.

'We know what to expect from them. They have experience, flair, height, strength and power but are inconsistent and that is why they, like many teams, are not at the top of the league. They have done a lot of travelling this week and we have to play at a high tempo and get right at them from the first whistle.'


While Barnsley midfielder Hugo Colace told barnsleyfc.co.uk of the importance of a winning their home games and taking a good run of form into March.

He said: 'It is important and we need a win on Saturday. We have worked very hard in training and are looking good.

'Games like Charlton happen in football. We did not play well but we needed points. We have four from six and that is ok but we need more. We now have to go out and get more but not to lose against Charlton was ok.

'We need to make sure we pick up a lot of points in the next month. We have been training hard to get off to a good start. We have to win our home matches and that is always important. Confidence is very high. The new players have been very positive and good for the club.'


Rangers travel to Oakwell for a 3:00pm kick off on Saturday February 28 as they look to continue an excellent run of away form.

I sincerely hope those comments come back to bite Davey - hopefully now we can get some consistency until the end of the campaign!

They are a little risky - they are the sort of comments I would hate to see us making coz they'd definitely bite us if we made them!

They usually do don't they!! They will no doubt be up for this given their recent record, we're going to have to ride it out for a bit and dish out a sucker punch!
