Barnsley 5pts clear

Simon Davey insists there will not be any letting up from his Barnsley side, while Crystal Palace manager Peter Taylor needs to have a big shake up,so palace can make a decent title challange next term.
Barnsley have now moved five points clear of third from bottom Leeds United following a crucial 2-0 win over a sorry Crystal Palace side at Oakwell.
Despite their superb run of three consecutive victories,Davey believes it would be a mistake to believe Barnsley are safe
'There'll be no resting on our laurels. There's too much at stake for us to do anything like that,' explained Davey.
'Barnsley have won three games in a row, which is brilliant, but it'll only be worth something if we stay up. I won't say we are safe until it's mathematically certain.'
Peter Taylor on the other hand was left fuming after a re-taken penalty condemned Crystal Palace to the 2-0 defeat was.

Taylor's side were trailing to Daniel Nardiello's first half goal when the Barnsley were awarded a spot-kick for a foul on the former Manchester United trainee.

Julian Speroni saved Nardiello's penalty but a linesman ruled the Palace keeper had moved off his line before the ball was struck.

Nardiello beat Speroni at the second attempt to leave Palace pointless and frustrated.

'Whether he moved too soon or not I don't know, but what I do know is there are hundreds of instances like that and nothing is done about it,' Taylor said. 'This guy has ordered a retake when that never really happens.' 'There's no consistency.'

'If the score had stayed at 1-0 then we had a chance, because we were creating chances, but 2-0 killed us.'

'I don't want to take anything away from Barnsley. They played very well, like we knew they would, and they deserved to win.'

Davey, meanwhile, is remaining quiet on whether Daniel Nardiello, who scored twice on Saturday, will be at Barnsley next season.
'He's doing well at the moment, but no decision has been made,' he concluded.

Star Player

Nardiello, chased so many balls and it's all paid off again, with another two goals coming his way.
