Michael Duff believes playing in front of a home crowd in Friday’s play-off second leg could give Barnsley ‘a boost’.

The Reds drew 1-1 at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, and have been praised for their performance.

They now meet at Oakwell on Friday from 8pm for a place at Wembley.

Duff said: “We will have to be as good if not better next week when we’re at home

“We have to do it again. Last time they came to our place they beat us 3-0. There will be no taking our eye off the ball, back-slapping and thinking it’s done.

“I hope it’s a big moment from a player that decides it rather than a refereeing decision. The referee was good in Bolton.

“It will be tight, a similar sort of affair I imagine. We’ll be at home and hopefully the backing of the crowd can give us a bit of a boost. I have told the players: ‘don’t think the job is done.’ There is 90 minutes of a season now so give it everything again.”
