Tomasz Cywka: Barnsley midfielder hopeful of a starting berth

The Pole, in his second season at Oakwell after arriving from Reading, smashed home an unstoppable free-kick to haul his side level at Forest, but a late header from Darius Henderson secured Billy Davies's promotion-chasers another three points at the City Ground.

Cywka, who has started only once this season, said after the Reds' third straight away defeat: "I'm very happy because I'm staying in training every single day practising these free-kicks.

"It was quite a big distance, but it would taste much better if we did get a point out of the game.

"I'm just really happy that the work I put in paid off, obviously when I'm on the pitch I may have one or two chances in 90 minutes and it's got to be perfect. That's why I practice in training to make the best out of it."

The 25-year-old added: "I'm not satisfied sat on the bench.

"My aim us to start every week. I'm working hard on the training ground and on the pitch when I get on. I want to help the team."

Cywka is hoping to return to the starting XI on Tuesday night when Barnsley chase their first points on the road this season at Bournemouth.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
