BARNSLEY keeper Luke Steele is confident the Reds can last the Championship pace and push themselves harder than ever before this season.
“The lads found this pre-season harder, it’s definitely the hardest a lot of them have experienced,” Steele told The Star.
“So we’ve become fitter than before and for me personally I’ve got a new goalkeeping coach - and that’s been brilliant.
“Ian Willcock is a terrific coach and that’s working really well for me. He’s top drawer - he’s young and he’s hungry, which is great for me.”
