A Must Win

Barnsley travel to Charlton tonight in a match that could determine where the reds will ply their trade next season.

A defeat for the reds will mean that relegation is almost a certainty despite the fact that we are guaranteed three points on Saturday against Leeds.

A victory for the reds will once again give fans hope that the great escape could be on.

I feel no matter what the result tonight, that we have probably left ourselves with too much to do this late in the season.

We have some winnable fixtures between now and the end of the season but unfortunately for us to win games you need to score goals and to score goals you need to create chances.

The lack of goal scoring opportunities in recent fixtures has been a big worry. We have matched or competed with higher placed opponents but struggled to create any clear cut opportunities especially at Oakwell.

Many fans are miffed with the decision to play one up front recently but does Wilson have any other option? Pedersen is injured and Proschwitz has been poor after a good start to life with the reds. Also would another striker help us create more chances? Maybe it would as we may have an option in and around the box but there is an argument that we should create more opportunities with the extra man in midfield which we are simply not doing.

Overall whether we have one up front or two, I believe we will struggle to create enough chances needed to win football matches. We just aren`t good enough at this level.

Our recent victories have seen us have to score outstanding goals to take the points and that is not going to happen week in week out.

Charlton are beatable and a draw is no good for us so we need to go for it tonight. Win or bust is the way that I see it. I`m just not sure what combination of strikers and midfielders is the best way to proceed and I don`t think Wilson knows either. That is no dig at our manager; it is hard to pick a team capable of winning when you simply don`t have enough quality players to pick.
