David Flitcroft: Focused on Barnsley's game at Huddersfield

The Tykes are currently in the relegation zone, but a win away at Huddersfield will guarantee their survival.

A draw could be good enough, depending on Peterborough's result away at play-off chasing Crystal Palace, but Flitcroft wants his side to take control of their own destiny and not have to worry about proceedings elsewhere.

"I'm delighted we're in this position and delighted that the lads have given themselves a shot to stay in this division," he told the club's official website.

"We can only affect what we can do. We only control this game.

"This group wants to focus on themselves and it's important we do that.

"It's a game where we'll focus what we're about. It's something we're working quite hard at on Oakwell this week to put in place.

"It's going to be a massive day, whatever happens."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
