On the back of the defeat to Wigan Athletic last Saturday, West Bromwich Albion’s Harvey Barnes – for the moment at least – took to social media to thank the travelling fans for their support at the DW Stadium and with our seven-game unbeaten run coming to an end, he promised a reaction in the Wednesday evening fixture.

Having lost at the weekend as Josh Windass scored late on to take the points in what was a very poor display based on our own self-set standards in more recent times in the Championship campaign, next Saturday sees us back on home soil as we host newly-promoted Blackburn Rovers and they will be on a high having taken victory over Leeds United.

We’ll clearly have to be better than we were if we are to get back to winning ways and come out of the match with a positive result.

It might have been a simple message from the 20-year-old, but it was on the button for these fans.

A win next Saturday would calm the criticisms flying around at the moment, but I look at the table and accept we’re still a work in progress and we will have bad days – everyone can do better than they did against Wigan and Barnes has his part to play in that.
