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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
