Gerhard Struber unbeaten with Barnsley in five games – ENGLISH FOOTBALL

by: Adam Smith


Gerhard Struber is getting in better shape with Barnsley. For the fifth time in a row, they did not go off the pitch as losers.

The former coach of Wolfsberger AC provides hopeful glimpses of hope at former table-topping FC Barnsley. Against Swansea City they scored again in the goalless draw and are unbeaten for five games. “We are happy with the game without a goal and the point,” Strubers said of the game. “We didn’t perform at our best today. At the moment it is not easy with so many games in a short time,” said the native Kuchler.

The English club jumped from last place in the Championship to the penultimate 22nd place, equaling their points with ex-Arnautovic club Stoke City. Just one place ahead is Barnsley’s next opponent, the real Premier League aspirant Derby County, coached by Philipp Cocu.

The defensive series is quite a remarkable achievement when you compare the time before and since Struber. By the time Struber took over From Barnsley, they had a record of one win, six draws and nine defeats. Since his arrival, however, they have managed three wins, two draws and three defeats.
