'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bogy's Back!

Barnsley's Maltese international striker Daniel Bogdanovic missed Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Leicester after returning to his homeland to be with his mother who had suffered a heart attack.

The clinical hitman marked his return to action last night however with a brace of goals to send Barnsley through to the third round of the Carling Cup.

Bogdanovic struck his first goal inside the first 10 minutes of the second half, latching on to a ball from Jamal Campbell-Ryce and striking straight into the onrushing keeper, who spilled the shot, leaving Bogdanovic another chance to spin on the ball and finish from 10 yards. He didn't miss.

With the game looking like going through to extra time and possibly penalties, Kayode Odejayi was brought down in the box with a shooting chance and Bogdanovic stepped up to score the resulting penalty, slotting the ball into the bottom left corner under the keeper.

Speaking to the club's official website after the game, Simon Davey said: 'I had to see whether he [Bogdanovic] was in the right frame of mind after he returned to Malta to be with his mother, who had a heart attack and surgery last weekend. The answer was yes.'

After his goal scoring exploits, which the team have lacked in recent games, Reds fans can almost certainly expect to see him start on Saturday when the Reds welcome Reading to Oakwell for a league game, looking for their first win in the Championship after a four match winless start to the season.
