Barnsley Boss Expecting Tough Game Against City

Last updated : 14 September 2018 By CNS Sport

Barnsley boss Andreas Tinkler is expecting a tough game against Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena tomorrow.

Barnsley are unbeaten this season and are heavy favourites to beat City who moved out of the relegation zone with a 2-1 win at Oxford United last Sunday.

Tinkler told his club's website: “We know their strengths; they’re good from set pieces and also in their build up play, so they can mix it up,” continued the Reds’ Assistant Head Coach. “We have to improve some parts of our game and our style of football, if you look at last Saturday.

“We have watched their previous matches this season to be aware of their strengths and what their formation is. They got promoted and have some very good players, so I’m expecting a tough match. 

“I know we haven’t won there for 95 years, so it will be a tough match. If we can re-write history it’d be nice, but it’s more important to me, the squad and the gaffer to be unbeaten.”
