VIEW FROM THE BENCH

: "For the second week in a row we're up against a team with a new manager which will make it tougher but all I'm concerned about is ourselves and making sure we go out there with the right attitude and a game plan that we can implement and which will get us three points."Dean Saunders

  

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

This is only the second meeting of the two sides. Back on the opening day at Oakwell, Reds won 1-0 thanks to an Izale McLeod goal late on.
