PRESTON NORTH END FC v BARNSLEY FC
Saturday 5th October 2019
DANIEL STENDEL is a German manager which seems to be quite popular in parts of Yorkshire recently.
He played as a striker with most appearances for Hanover96 and was later to be appointed head coach in April 2016 and was sacked by March 2017.
In June 2018 he was appointed manager of Barnsley FC on a two year deal.
His best performance to date is his one round bout with Fleetwoods own Joey Barton.
Stendel took Bartons best punches and earned a honourable draw, Barton it seems has been charged and has been bailed until the 9th of October.
THE MANAGER SAID...
“I was at their game last night and it was a good game. It was an entertaining match.”
“Expectations are higher which isn’t a bad thing but there also has to be an element of realism in there as well.
We have played ten games, if we are in this position after 30 games then by all means get a bit excited, but there is a lot of football to be played.”
"Maybe this is the one moment that we need to turn the results and I hope on Saturday in Preston that we can do it.
"For the team, for the players and for us and also for our supporters, it was a great moment to score in the last minute. I think we deserved this point."
If you are only as good as your last game we are a hard working team that was brought down to their level of struggling form by a smarting Middlesborough team and will have to up our game in front of our home crowd.
Barnsleys last game saw them snatch a honourable draw aganst Sky's very own Derby County FC with a goal in the fourth minute of four minutes injury time.
The draw keeps them in the bottom three but as we know there are no gimme's in this league.

ONE TO WATCH...
Cauley Woodrow is the name that leaps out to me.
Signed in the summer of 2018 from Premier League outfit Fulham, initially on a loan deal, Woodrow has bags of experience for his relatively young age having played over 100 games in the top flight and second tier.
An England U21 international, Cauley arrived at Oakwell and immediately found his form in front of goal, with Barnsley making his move a permanent one in January of 2019.
Finishing the season tied on 19 goals with Kieffer Moore, the goals of Woodrow were key as the Reds sealed automatic promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
The match official for Saturday’s clash with Daniel Stendel’s Barnsley at Deepdale is experienced referee Gavin Ward.
Gavin, from Surrey, is in his 13th season on the EFL lists, and although he has officiated the Lilywhites on eight previous occasions, this is only his second at Deepdale.
As mentioned, in those 12 seasons he has also taken charge of North End on eight previous occasions, including our late draw at Hull City in October 2018, our early season trip to Carrow Road to face Norwich City and our home clash with Sheffield United in April.
Prior to our trip to Norfolk early last season, the last game he officiated was at Elland Road against Leeds United in December 2015, when Jordan Pickford was sent off, only to have the card rescinded on appeal – Mathew Hudson that day making his debut for the Lilywhites. His other games in charge of PNE were at Brentford and in 2010 at Leicester City, and his first two in the space of a few months back in early 2010, at Bristol City and a 1-1 draw with Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena.
This will be his eighth game of the season, having so far issued 24 yellow cards and three red cards in his seven previous games, the last of which being Luton Town’s 2-1 win at Blackburn Rovers last weekend. On Saturday afternoon Richard Wild and Nik Barnard will be the match official’s assistants, whilst the fourth official will be Benjamin Speedie.
