Davey aware of Alex threat

Davey aware of Alex threat

Barnsley manager Simon Davey has stated that the Reds are ready for what Crewe Alexandra may throw at his side in tomorrow`s League Cup clash at Gresty Road.

Simon told www.barnsleyfc.co.uk:

"Crewe have a reputation for Cup shocks and play very good football. It will be tough but we are confident of getting a result."

The last time the Tykes made the trip to Gresty Road was way back in December 2002, Crewe ran out 2-0 winners in the league as current Barnsley star Stephen Foster headed home a Kenny Lunt free-kick along with a strike from Rodney Jack in the 82nd minute.

Simon continued:

" It is important for us to go and win the game. We will always put out our strongest team in the Cup. We will take it very seriously because we need a cup run every year."

Tomorrow`s game will kick off at 7:45pm.
