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.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
