Davey's derby double delight

Davey's derby double delight

Barnsley manager Simon Davey spoke of his delight after wtinessing his side complete a double over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Speaking to www.barnsleyfc.co.uk, Simon said:

' We had our rest for two and a half weeks and that gave us the chance to bed people into the team. I thought we performed very well tonight.

'Our system caused them a lot of problems in the first half. Coming here to Sheffield Wednesday you know that they are going to have spells and they had them in the second half but we defended like Trojans out there. Our defending was fantastic at times and they were a tower of strength.

'We were breached once but Bobby Hassell was there. That's what they are paid for.'

Jamal Campbell-Ryce became the first Barnsley player to score a league winner at Hillsborough since Ronnie Glavin's strike back in 1983.

Davey continued:


'It was a magnificent goal to win the game and we have worked all week on hitting teams on the break like that.

'We counter-attacked Sheffield Wednesday well today and if we had picked the better option we could have been two or three up in the first half.

'It is nice for the club and great for the supporters. We have not given them a lot to cheer about this year so to win a Yorkshire derby and do the double here is great for them.

'We gave them a performance and a result that they can be proud of when they are making the journery back up the A61.'
