Boss Excited About Strike Duo

BARNSLEY boss David Flitcroft is excited about the potential of the club’s strike partnership between Chris Dagnall and Chris O’Grady.

Flitcroft is confident the pair can cause chaos in the Championship.

O’Grady, who made his move permanent earlier on in the summer after a loan spell from Sheffield Wednesday, sparkled last season and many of the Reds’ tactics were formed around feeding the strong striker and playing off him.

The duo played together at Rochdale, so it’s little surprise O’Grady and Dagnall enjoy being alongside each other.

"Chris is a great physical specimen. He’s got great physical capabilities,” Flitcroft said. “He’s signed for us for two years and I think he can do so much for us in that time.

"Daggers is so hard-working. Without doubt him and Chris are two of the hardest-working centre-forwards in the division. They're a great partnership.

"Chris was a big piece in our jigsaw last season and the way we played. I’m excited about this season and what they can achieve."

The Reds kick off their Championship campaign at home to Wigan Athletic at Oakwell on Saturday August 3.

mmmm like the pairing of O'Grady and Daggers but still think we need a proven 'fox in the box' or someone to inject some pace upfront or we'll become far too predictable... need to be able to change the goal threat around if need be.... Barnsley need to get some money spent, goals keep u up!!!!
