A note from the Chairman

16 April 2018

As I have said on many occasions there will be twists and turns during the remainder of the Sky Bet Championship campaign and our game at Barnsley on Saturday proved that once again.

The way we played throughout the match suggests that we've got the nous and wherewithal to stay in this league.

Granted, not to come away with the three points after coming back from behind in dramatic style was particularly gutwrenching, but in terms of the league placing, after Wolves' victory against Birmingham on Sunday, we are actually one place better off.

I have to comment on the wonderful support the 2,500 Wanderers fans gave to the team at Oakwell - it was simply awesome.

I have no doubt that the levels of passionate noise you generated inspired the team to bounce back after going a goal down.

That you still carried on despite that late leveller was inspirational and I think it sends a message to the players, not that they need reminding of course, that you believe in them.

With support like this over the final three games, I am convinced that the players will respond positively and we will get what's needed to get over the line.

Of course, it won't be easy. This coming weekend's opponents, Wolves, are Premier League quality and have shown their finesse all season.

I must congratulate them on their promotion to the top flight, but we will be giving them a game on Saturday, that is for sure.

Please get down to Macron Stadium and get right behind the team in our penultimate home fixture of the campaign, with tickets still available HERE alongside hospitality, details of which can be found HERE.

We look to Burton Albion away thereafter who are fighting for their lives whilst we end the season in front of our home fans against Nottingham Forest - tickets for which can be purchased HERE.

I have been very pleased with the 'glass half full' attitude that is resonating throughout the club at this moment and we need it to continue for these final three games.

Please continue to back us, as you have all season, and maintain the levels of noise you so enthusiastically generate.

Much conjecture has been postulated about the number of changes to the starting XI in recent games.

This is merely a case of the manager rotating his squad and using the options available to him to ensure fresh legs and to alter tactics.

This was none more evident on Saturday with the introduction of Will Buckley and Craig Noone, who both came off the bench and in my view, turned the game on its head. It also keeps our opponents guessing and makes us less predictable.

Our Under-18 and Under-23s teams are both on course for success, and naturally we are fully behind them as they too head towards the end of their respective campaigns.

Finally, I would like to remind you about the replica kit and training wear sale which can see you save up to 50% off all available items.

If you haven't already got your club colours, why not take advantage of this great offer and wear your shirt for the Wanderers in our remaining games?

You can buy in store or online via bwfcdirect.co.uk, but please hurry as we only have limited stocks remaining and we would not want you to miss out.

As ever however, let's be loud, let's be proud and let's get behind the team in this final run-in.

Come On You Whites!

Ken
