Confidence High As Wilson Prepares For Bristol City Test

Friday October 24 2014

DANNY Wilson says the mood in the camp is "buoyant" ahead of the clash against league leaders Bristol City - despite the Reds having lost five out of eight home games this season.

Barnsley - who threw away a two-goal lead when Notts County visited Oakwell on Tuesday night - sit just two points above the relegation zone with games against South Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United and in-form Colchester on the horizon.

Dismayed fans chanted for Wilson's sacking after the Reds' defence capitulated in the last match, but the manager is still encouraged by what he's seen from his side on the pitch.

"The attacking play has been absolutely superb," he said. "Notts County's defence is arguably one of the best in the league and we've cut them to ribbons at times.

"Mood in the camp is good. They're buoyant. I think they're in that frame of mind because of how well we've played at times."

Saturday's opponents Bristol City will pose Barnsley's temperamental defence a stern test, with the table-toppers arriving at Oakwell unbeaten in 14 outings.

"We've got to be at our best because they're doing so well," added Wilson, who managed City from 2000-2004. "They look like they're going to be a team that will maintain their position so they need respect.

"Any team in the league is beatable. We believe that if we can play attacking wise as we did on Tuesday we can score goals. We have to tweak the other side of our game, though."

Sorry Wedge , we are rubbish, thinking of jumping ship like all the " loyal " fans who deserted us when we were relegated from the prem, to many glory hunters in Barnsley and now when the team needs them, where are there, watching sky,

It is heartbreaking really. The 'mighty' 'sleeping giants' should really ought to be rubbing shoulders with other big city teams in the premiership. But they are nowhere near that, haven't been for years. So they console themselves with being a bit better than little ole Barnsley. Pathetic really thinking about it.

Wednesday fans, a massive oh dear you deluded morons. Why the he'll are you looking at this? Obsessed, probably won't see this though as u might not not a signal in the slum you call home.

Nice try Fritzals. Do love a Dingles call, a family off a TV show. Try harder boys. Would imagine your all Dingles looking at this.

Now on to the game. Will Danny "park the bus" Wilson park the bus from the start and settle for a 6 -0 defeat? He'd take it as a good result.

Wedge has the mind and interlect of a 7 year old with his childish repetitive rants,a true supporter wouldn't keep hanging around posting comments on rivals sites,they'd be supporting their team rather than feeling threatened by rival clubs,lets face it though,sheff wensday arnt doing a great deal better now are they ,grounds a heap that gets flooded every time it rains,swfc fans cant come to terms with the fact its a club of has beens that will never be,face it lads you're gonna end up in the gutter,thats why you feel so threatened by other clubs,like they say losers alus try take it out on other folk just like wedge keeps doing,deep down he knows he's just as big a loser as his beloved swfc,anyone else agree with what i say,well done today reds

Impressive from the players when they were allowed to play.

Danny Wilson again costing us point's. Negative 1st half. Came out in 2nd and went 2-1 up playing very well. Scored 2nd and Wilson set up to hang on. They scored then we went on as we played in 1st half.

Like Tuesday, points dropped again. Familiar story this season due to negativity.
