Exclusive: Dean Ashton assesses the size of recent Barnsley blow

Published

Barnsley are firmly in the chase for League One promotion this season with them flying along just behind Luton Town.

They suffered a setback with Kieffer Moore being ruled out for the campaign, though, and will hope that they can get by without him.

Certainly, the early signs are positive enough after their win over Southend but what does EFL on Quest pundit Dean Ashton think?

Here’s what he told us exclusively when we asked how big a blow Moore’s absence could be…

“Normally you would say it all depends on who you’ve got to come in and replace him and who is going to replace the goals that he gets.

“Barnsley have shown so far with Woodrow who has come in and done superbly with his goal-scoring record that they might be alright; they’ve not really missed him!

“It’s a good thing for Barnsley obviously but from Moore’s point of view that’s probably dented his ego slightly!

“More of a concern, though, is that he gets his recovery right because that is a slight worry that he is out for the season from a head injury and you just hope it is nothing too serious beyond that.

“You’d think over a longer period Barnsley would miss his goals but so far they haven’t.”
