Barnsley striker Cauley Woodrow has heaped praise on his manager Daniel Stendel for the job he has done at Oakwell since his arrival.
Both the player and manager arrived at the club in the summer and have impressed since, guiding the Tykes into second place.
“The Gaffer is very good,” Woodrow told his pre-match press conference.
“He’s very clear in what he wants.
“I hope to repay his and the club’s faith in me.”
Initially arriving on loan from Fulham before making his move permanent in January, Woodrow has bagged an impressive 11 goals in 20 matches.
With Kieffer Moore set to miss the rest of the campaign, the goalscoring mantle will fall to the 24-year-old and will need him to continue that in tomorrow night’s clash with Sunderland.
The Tykes currently sit four points clear of Jack Ross’s side in second place as both look to make an immediate return to the second-tier, with tomorrow night’s clash looking set to be a defining moment.
Woodrow has been immense in recent weeks and is right to praise Stendel.
This is by far the most successful period the striker has had and seems to thriving in the German’s current system.
Whether he will be able to do enough without Moore is another matter, however.
