Vs Coventry City, Championship, 3pm
By Jon Spencer
1. Why you were looking
forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may
I was mainly looking forward
to the trip to Barnsley as we have tended to have an excellent record
against them. Also Barnsley have an over-hang roof in the away end so
there a good amount of noise can be made from there. It is a traditional
ground that is surrounded by terrace housing I have always found that
these grounds have a good amount of character sort of brings back memories
of the character that was present at Highfield Road.
2. How easy was your
journey/finding the ground/car parking?
3. What you did before the
game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?
Before the game we decided
to walk towards the centre and have a look around. We saw quite a few home
fans but there was no problems at all they were very nice even though we
had our colours on show. I grabbed a burger at a van near the ground it
was unsurprisingly expensive but this has become commonplace around
4. What you thought on

5. Comment on the game

6. Comment on getting away

7. Summary of overall
thoughts of the day out:
Overall it was a great day out our fans and players were great. After a bad start weather wise the sun came out and made for an enjoyable afternoon. I will be definitely coming again next year as it was one of my better away trips. The food was nice and the staff were friendly couldn’t of got much better really. I recommend the trip to anyone.
