Danny’s wish for 2014: A fresh start

Barnsley boss Danny Wilson is hoping a New Year brings a new freshness to his struggling side.

The Reds have yet to win since Wilson returned to the Oakwell helm and have lost their last two fixtures over a tough Christmas schedule.

And the challenge doesn’t get any easier with a tough away clash with Birmingham City at St Andrews today.

Wilson has seen enough after three games and has admitted changes will be made when the January transfer window re-opens.

“We have to move and move players around in January as best we can,” revealed Wilson.

“Whether we’ll have to let players go, well we’ll have to wait and see. But if it’s for the better of the team then we’re going to have to do it.

“We’ve got nothing lined up at the moment, but we’ll need to assess things on whether other clubs come in for any of our players. That comes into the equations.

“Whether we just get people in on loan, we’re going to have to shift some players around. That’s for sure.

Reds midfielder Stephen Dawson is “hurting” because of the club’s poor run of form this season.

But the determined Dubliner has stressed the club need to remain positive in their outlook to get out of trouble.

“It has been hard the last couple of months because it hasn’t been going well, but you’ve just got to remain positive,” stressed Dawson.

“I’m sure the manager won’t let us get too downbeat. He can’t because he’s only got the players in front of him – and we all need to pull together.

“The club have been struggling for a couple of years now, but I don’t like making excuses when people talk about us having the lowest budget in the league.

“We can’t cry about it, we’ve just to get on with it.”
