Barnsley v Sheffield Wednesday: League One playoff final – live
Michael Duff: The youngest side in the Championship goes up against the oldest today and Barnsley’s Tykes are living up to their nickname with an average of 24 compared to Wednesday’s 29. Michael Duff doesn’t think his team’s comparative inexperience will stand against them today.
“They’ll have 1,000s more games than us and that might help them, it might not,” he said in an interveiw with BBC Radio Sheffield. “Our youth and naivety might help us. I’m not concerned about anyone freezing. It might happen but it could happen with older players as well. It’s a one-off occasion and whoever can handle it best.
“We talk about youthfulness, intensity and quality. That’s the strapline we’ve used for this team all season. If we can bring all three to the party on Monday then we have got a good chance.”
