‘England’s best’, ‘Needs to be knighted’ – Plenty of Barnsley fans pile praise on 21-y/o star after midweek display
Barnsley continued their impressive run of form on Wednesday night, with Valerien Ismael’s side securing a 2-0 win over Stoke City.
The Tykes have been transformed into play-off contenders following the appointment of Ismael last October.
Their Wednesday night win over Stoke City makes it four consecutive victories in the Championship. Not only that, but it puts them within touching distance of the play-offs.
As it stands, Barnsley occupy 8th place, sitting only one point away from the top six with a game in hand on the three teams above (AFC Bournemouth, Cardiff City and Reading).
Barnsley went ahead under the floodlights at Oakwell after just nine minutes last night. Midfield dynamo Callum Styles fired home from distance to put Ismael’s Tykes 1-0 up in impressive fashion.
The win was sealed in the dying embers of the game when January signing Daryl Dike netted his first goal for the club from close range. The American was played in by Conor Chaplin, duly firing beyond Angus Gunn to seal all three points.
In an impressive all-round display from Barnsley, Styles was among the players picked out by supporters for another strong display.
