Reds Make Encouraging Start

Reds Make Encouraging Start

Despite some murmurs of doom and gloom at Barnsley after a heavy opening day defeat to Queens Park Rangers and a first round exit in the League Cup to Rochdale, things are looking up for the Reds.

They have actually made their best start to the season since they re-entered the Championship in 2006. Back then they suffered defeat on the opening day to Cardiff City but bounced back to beat Hull City 3-2 in their next league fixture.

The Reds haven't had 3 points on the board after just 2 games since that season so it's looking like Mark Robins is making a difference here in his first full season in charge.

Last season it took us 7 games to claim a victory in the league and we were rooted to the bottom of the table when Robins took over. This time around, everyone is hoping for better things and the start we've made so far is encouraging.

If we were to claim a victory at Ashton Gate this Saturday, it would see us reach 6 points after 3 games for the first time since the 2003/2004 season, when we actually started with 1-0 victories over Colchester United and Brighton and a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth.
