Barnsley FC’s McGeehan: “We have to give it everything we got.”

Barnsley FC will be looking to extend their four point gap in the League One promotion spots when they face Coventry City on Saturday.

The Tykes are currently second in the EFL League One table with 78 points, four points ahead of Portsmouth and five points ahead of Sunderland.

Coventry City, 9th in the league table, is one of only five teams who managed to beat Barnsley FC this season.

Cameron McGeehan, midfielder for Barnsley FC, said: “Coventry is a big club. We struggled against them last time. We lost 0-1 so we got a point to prove for that one.

“It’s going to be a big game. We know that if we turn up on the day and show them what we can do do, we will beat them.”

Speaking about his place in this year’s League One Team of the Season, he said: “I’m really proud. Its really nice to get that recognition and to be in there with some of the teammates is great.

“But it means nothing because we got to get promoted. If we don’t get promoted, being in the Team of the Season looks a bit silly so we have to make sure we give it everything we got in these last seven games.”

Barnsley FC’s assistant manager Dale Tonge said: “Coventry’s style of play is excellent and very pleasing on the eye. They play good counter attacking football. They’re a good team and its going to be a really tough game.”

Answering a question about a recent lack of goals, Tonge told reporters: “You want the football, you want the goals, but at the same time those performances and especially a last minute winner could be a catalyst for the last seven games. It could kick the boys on.”

The assistant manager said that his team expects the teams below to win every game and that Barnsley FC will have to do their job and “keep the pressure up”.

It has been over a year since Barnsley FC lost a home game. The match will kick off at 15:00 on Saturday in Oakwell stadium.
