Fans Making Reds Play Better, Says Flicker

THE Reds' recent upturn in performances is down to the fans, says David Flitcroft.

Having been rewarded with a hard-earned point against Reading in their last home game, the manager dedicated the positive result to the fans' support.

"The fans got me this job in January and it feels like they're still backing me," he said. "They've been brilliant all season and in the last few weeks the players have really responded to that.

"Reading felt the stadium and Middlesbrough will feel it on Saturday."

Despite losing to two Charlie Austin goals in a 2-0 defeat at Loftus Road last time out before the international break, Flicker also thanked the 384 fans who made the journey south.

The next two games could be crucial to kick-start the Reds' campaign and lift them off the foot of the table, with Middlesbrough visiting Oakwell on Saturday before a South Yorkshire derby with fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday.

The defensive effort at QPR also saw loanee Peter Ramage sustain a thigh injury, with reports suggesting the defender could be out for up to eight weeks.

"He'll be injured for four to six weeks but it'll take another two weeks to get him back to match fitness," said Flitcroft.

"It's really disappointing for us. He had been forming a good partnership with Martin Cranie."

Barnsley fans must have hearts like lions to keep enduring season after season of relegation battles. Wish I had Crynes millions so I could go out and buy a few decent players instead of all these loan players and rejects.
