Barnsley are preparing for the new League One campaign looking to add to the attack, according to manager Danny Wilson. The club managed to score only 44 goals throughout the entire season last time around. This saw them get relegated from the Championship after a few years in the second division of English football. Wilson recently expressed his desire to stay at Barnsley and help the club back into the championship. In order to do so, he is targeting a new look attack that will score more goals.
He says that the League One is an uncompromising division and that clubs will struggle to get out of the division if they cannot score goals. Barnsley have been known as a club that can play attractive football. Wilson says that the players that the club will be trying to sign in the summer will be those who can fit into the system. Based on the comments from the manager, it looks like midfield and attack will be the key areas that will be strengthened over the summer. Barnsley finished bottom of the Championship last season after a disappointing campaign.
They came close to getting promoted to the Premier League only a few years ago.
“League One is an uncompromising league, but there’s plenty of goals in it. If you can find the right players to fill the right areas, then you’re going to get goals. Our priority this summer is getting the best quality of attacking players into the club as we can. We also need the players in midfield areas and wide areas who can produce the chances for those players. The type of player we want is someone who knows and understands what Barnsley Football Club is all about,” said the Barnsley manager.
The club are set to lose some of the star names who will be looking to stay in the Championship.
