Ex Reds With Robins

Ex Reds With Robins

When the Reds go to Ashton Gate tomorrow they will be greeted by two familiar faces and arguably two of Barnsley's best players from the last 3 years.

Lewin Nyatanga could line up for the Robins in defence. He impressed Simon Davey while on loan from Derby County at the end of the 2006/07 season and pressure grew for the erstwhile manager to bring the defender in on a permanent basis. Davey managed to secure a six month loan for the youngster the following season. He returned to Oakwell again in January that season, after a brief spell back at Derby, and helped keep the Reds in the Championship, partnering Denis Souza in central defence.

Nyatanga made a total of 51 appearances for the Reds, scoring 2 goals.

Jamal Campbell-Ryce made his exit to Bristol City from the Reds in January this year after falling out of favour with Mark Robins. Campbell-Ryce was always a crowd favourite with his lightning pace and trickery exciting the fans.

Campbell-Ryce made exactly 100 appearances for Barnsley, scoring 13 goals. Hopefully, if he does start, Jay McEveley will be able to keep him quiet.
