Barnsley striker Jason Scotland is backing the club to bounce back from their miserable start to the season.

The Reds are languishing at the foot of the Championship table after seven defeats in nine outings so far.

And Scotland, who has scored in his last two matches, is hoping the club can turn the corner with positive results from a tough home clash with Reading at Oakwell tonight and then away to QPR on Saturday.

“It’s a tough league, the Championship,” stressed Scotland. “The top teams like QPR have been consistent so far this season.

“Reading have been up and down and not been as consistent as QPR, so we can probably get something from the game.

“In the Championship everybody can beat everybody. We’re at home against Reading so hopefully we can get something out of that.

“Maybe QPR are a unique team because they are doing the job and are hard to beat.

“But it’s difficult for us when we’re conceding so many goals. The players and the staff are feeling it, me included.

“But we’ve been working on eradicating silly mistakes and not conceding silly goals. We’re trying to be compact.”
