Danny Wilson: Set for a return to the Barnsley hot-seat

Barnsley have announced a press conference for 3pm this afternoon where they are expected to confirm Danny Wilson as their manager for a second time.

The 53-year-old, who was sacked by Sheffield United in April, led the Tykes to promotion to the top flight for the first time in their history in 1997 during his first spell at Oakwell.

He can also count Sheffield Wednesday, Bristol City and Hartlepool among his former clubs.

The Reds have been searching for a new boss since parting company with David Flitcroft at the end of November and have tasked Wilson with pulling the club away from the foot of the Sky Bet Championship.

Wilson's first game in charge will be Saturday's Yorkshire derby against Leeds at Elland Road.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
