BARNSLEY: More consistency needed at Oakwell

CRAIG Davies has urged his Barnsley teammates not to “do things by halves” next season.

The Reds only just managed to retain their Championship status following a miserable end to the 2011/12 campaign, so now leading scorer Davies – who scored 11 goals in the second tier last term – is clearly after more consistency next time around. He said: “Looking back, most of the players the gaffer brought in last summer and throughout the season did well, especially the ones from League One and League Two.

“Now we’ve just got to hope that we can have a good run for the whole of next season instead of just half of it. That’s what we’ll be aiming to do and that’s what we’ll be working towards in training during the summer.”

Davies – signed last summer from Chesterfield – added: “It was a bit frustrating towards the end of the season of course, but we stuck together as a group, we hung in there and we stayed in the Championship, which is the main thing for everyone at the club. We probably overachieved in the first half of the season a little bit, but at the end of the day we were happy with the way it all finished.

“We wanted to do better, but as I already said at least we stayed in the division.”
