Celtic to challenge Barnsley for in-demand striker, Cardiff City could miss out on Wolves defender

Barnsley's sensational 2020/21 campaign continued last weekend, when they moved to within just one point of the play-off places with a 2-1 win over Millwall, which was the Tykes' fifth Championhip victory on the trot.

Next up, Barnsley travel to take on QPR at Loftus Road tomorrow evening, and will be looking for a repeat performance of the one that saw them hammer the Hoops 3-0 when they met at Oakwell back in October.

Speaking ahead of the game, manager Valerien Ismael took time to play tribute to star midfielder Alex Mowatt

He said: "It (his leadership) is really important. Alex is a special player for me as a captain on the pitch as he understands everything and knows all the principles and believes in them.

“Now, I think he has made the next step in his development because he is really communicating with the guys and is giving confidence to them.

“It is important for me to have him as he takes a part of my job onto the pitch with the guys. At the moment, it is OK because we don’t have the fans."
