Rowett looks ahead to Barnsley meeting

The boss previews Tykes test...

23 October 2020

Gary Rowett praised his players for getting things "spot on" during Tuesday night's 2-0 victory over Luton Town - and has challenged The Lions' squad to continue their form into Saturday's fixture against Barnsley (kick-off 3pm).

Millwall take on The Tykes in SE16 looking for a third consecutive victory, and in speaking to after the Hatters win, the gaffer already had his eyes set on this weekend's showdown. 

The Yorkshire outfit are winless in the League so far in 2020/21.

"Every team is trying to be as good as they can be, and Barnsley will be no different," said Rowett. "They've been playing a similar way recently, I don't know what they'll be playing [on Wednesday night], but they've been playing in a 5-2-1-2 formation.

"Every game is different, though, and every team I pick has to be the right one. [On Tuesday, however], I thought we got it tactically spot on and the players were fantastic once again."
