Canpalace make it 3 wins on the trot, or will Barnsley get their first 3 points of the season, going to be a cracking game either way…
‘The season is less than a week old and we have lost two matches, albeit disappointingly, but it’s important we do not overreact. We need the players to show courage in passing the ball forwards and be an attacking threat.
‘This system is something different for the players and we have a lot of new faces to gel together at the same time.
‘There are new players and a new system and we’re looking to get those into the right positions to get the best out of them on the field. We want to play decent football and keep possession.
‘I’m not stupid though and I know we need results and need to win matches. We’re looking for the right formula that will allow us to play attractive football and win games. We know we have to battle, to compete, to win the ball in the air and, firstly, earn the right to play our football.’
