Next-game mentality for Rowe

Tommy Rowe is experienced enough to know he can’t look beyond the next game as he gives City’s trip to Barnsley his full focus.

He explains how it means every intricacy goes into studying and preparing for their next opponent.

“I think the older I get the more I understand that these clichés are crucial to success because you don’t look past the team at this level. The Championship today is so intense, so full on and you’ve got to be preparing for each game individually.

“We’ve had four games in a short space of time and it’s so important that we fully focus on every aspect that we need to do so the game is going to be a case of that on Friday…we’re not looking past anything other than the next training session and hopefully if we get that right then we will go into the game fully prepared and fully focused ready for the game.”

Barnsley v City - get your tickets

Recently-promoted Barnsley have struggled back in the Championship this season but Rowe, who knows all about them from last season with Doncaster, says the Robins must be ready.

“Last year we played them twice and they got promoted. Obviously I know a lot about how they were last season: they’re a good young side, they’ve also recruited well, I know a few players that have gone there this year and you look at their strength in depth, in terms of the young players who have been doing well for them in central areas, and they’ve done well.

“I think they can still go even further. We know what sort of qualities they have and it’s going to be down to us to devise the plan that we have so far done this season, stick to that game plan. I think when we do stick to the game plan as a group and we go into these team meetings and we come out from it with an idea of what we want, we back each other with it on the day and nine times out of ten we get the result we want so that’s crucial for us.”

Tickets for the game can be bought online via the link above or can be purchased from Oakwell on the night. Read more about pay on the day here, including CATS coaches information.
