Published Add your comment

Barnsley manager Simon Davey backed his players to beat the drop after they ground out a hard-earned goalless draw at Reading.

The Tykes` winless run extended to six games but Davey is confident his men will be playing their football in the Coca-Cola Championship again next term.

He said: "We know what we have to do and we have four games to do it. We know what points tally we need and this is another point towards it."

Davey added: "This is a confidence-booster. The performance was good, the resilience was good and everybody was mucking in and working hard.

"I always have been confident of staying up, from day one of pre-season, and my players are exactly the same."
