Goalkeeper Adam Davies wants to get back to winning ways for the Barnsley fans today.

The Reds have been on a torrid run, winning just twice in their last 16 games - with two losses in their last three encounters.

That run includes five successive draws at Oakwell, but they have the chance to put things right against struggling Burton Albion this afternoon.

“We have to do it for them [the fans], because they’ve been fantastic all season,” insisted Davies.

“They have come home and away every week and I think it’s one where we’ve got to do it for them.

“They have been great all season for us so now it’s our turn to do it for the fans.”

Burton, who finished above the Reds in League One last term, need just a solitary point to secure their Championship status.

Nigel Clough’s side will certainly want to get the job done today, instead of leaving it to the final day of the season.

The Reds have never lost against their visitors, with the last two games ending in goalless draws, and also never conceded in the four fixtures they have played against each other.

However, Davies - who has played in three of those four games - is expecting another real battle against the Brewers.

He said: “I’m sure they’ll come and make it tough for us.

“It’s always been tough every time I’ve played them.

“It’s going to be a battle, they’re quite direct.

“We know what to expect from them so it’s just about us being prepared to deal with that and showing them of our qualities off the ball.”

With life in the Championship well secured for another season, the Reds can enjoy their last couple of games.

Shot-stopper Davies, who started his career at Premier League side Everton, added: “It’s nice for us to have no pressure.

“It’s always nice to be able to go out there and enjoy it.”
