BARNSLEY have been urged to finish their Championship campaign on a high to set the tone for next season.
The Reds will finish mid-table in their first season back in the second tier of English football, after briefly flirting with the play-offs.
Their success was built on a good start to the campaign, feeding off the feelgood factor of promotion last term.
Now goalkeeper Adam Davies wants the Reds to take maximum points from their final two games – at home to Burton on Saturday before a tough trip to promoted Newcastle United next weekend.
“I think the momentum we carried over from last season helped us start this season well and allowed us to get a foothold in the division,” said Davies.
“We got some victories nice and early which always helps. I think we need to finish this season well to try and take that same kind of form into next season.

“I think we’ve done okay this season. I think we’ve done all right with the amount of players we’ve had coming in and in spite of some good players leaving. If we’d have been offered mid-table at the start of the season everyone would have taken that.
“I’ve really enjoyed it myself as well, on a personal level. It’s been a nice challenge, there’s been ups and downs, probably more ups! So it’s been good and I’ve enjoyed it.”
The former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper, 24, has signed a new deal at Oakwell until 2019.
The Welsh stopper said: “Playing every week is massive for me. There’s good people at the club; the management have been great with me from day one.
“I’m still young, only 24 and have already played a lot of games for a ’keeper. It’s good experience and I’m learning all the time,” he added.
