Reds Out For Back-To-Back Wins As Boss Praises McCourt

Friday October 25 2013

BARNSLEY are big favourites to win this Saturday's South Yorkshire derby - and David Flitcroft believes one of his midfielders will take the Championship by storm this season.

Playmaker Paddy McCourt, 29, scored a brilliant individual goal to set the ball rolling as the Reds clinched a much-needed 3-2 home win over Middlesbrough at Oakwell last time out.

But unfortunately the ex-Celtic man had to be withdrawn a couple of minutes later suffering from sickness.

"Paddy is so unpredictable, I don’t think there’s much like him in the Championship if I’m being honest," Flitcroft said.

"Once he gets near that box you’ve got to be very careful you don’t bring him down. He worries defenders. That’s what Paddy’s got.

"We’re still trying to get him fitter and stronger, but I believe he’ll take the Championship by storm, I really do. Paddy will be influential for us over the next six to eight games."

Arch rivals Sheffield Wednesday visit Oakwell on Saturday, searching for their first win of the season. Kick-off is at 12.15pm.

Too average sides, but Wednesday had most play and more shots on and off target. O'Grady looked average at best.
