Barnsley caretaker manager Paul Heckingbottom says winning promotion to the Sky Bet Championship would dwarf the clubs Johnstones Paint Trophy success at Wembley in April. Tim Howard Jersey . The Tykes return to the national stadium for the second time in two months to take on Millwall in the Sky Bet League One play-off final on Sunday, with a spot in the second tier on offer for the winner.They head back to Wembley with good memories after a JPT win over Oxford United last month and while the South Yorkshire club enjoyed that day, victory this weekend will mean much more. Its absolutely huge, you dont want to do the Johnstones Paint Trophy down at all because it was massive, Heckingbottom said.What an occasion, what a run, it helped to change the clubs season around. It was the first bit of silverware in a long time and we celebrated it well, everybody loved it. Barnsleys Adam Hammill and Lloyd Isgrove celebrate a 6-1 aggregate victory over Walsall It brought a lot of people together at the club but this is bigger for whats at stake. Its not a cup final, its promotion, its the chance to perform at the next level.Barnsley are unbeaten since the game after that JPT victory, eight matches in total, and their sizzling form has put them in with a great chance of returning to the Championship just two years after dropping out. Barnsley beat Oxford United to lift the Johnstones Paint Trophy The lads have done so well, chasing the play-offs, getting there, winning the semi-final and now the final goal is the biggest one, the final, Heckingbottom, who is likely to agree terms to turn his role into a permanent one after the game, added.Credit to them, they have been relentless.

The Redblacks host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (7-9) Friday night in their last home game of the year and as of Thursday afternoon, the team was anticipating a ninth consecutive sellout. You can watch all the action on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, and TSN5 beginning at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt.NEW YORK The Blue Jays entered Thursdays series finale at Yankee Stadium losers of eight of their last 11 games. Theyd dropped 15 in a row in the Bronx dating back to 2012 and had seen their lead over their pinstriped rivals in the American League East dwindle to two and a half games. This is a slump. Its lasted for about two weeks. The downturn comes on the heels of a terrific May, when Toronto won 21 of 30 games and Edwin Encarnacion captured the imagination of fans with his 16-home run month. This is not is the end of the world, nor does this slump suggest a long-term trend. This is on the offence and thats a good thing because theres too much talent in the Blue Jays lineup for the widespread malaise to continue. To wit: The starting pitching has been fine. You could say its been good and you wouldnt be wrong. In the last 11 games, Jays starters have allowed four or more earned runs only twice and have pitched to a staff ERA of 3.71. The starting pitching was supposed to be the weakness. So far it has held up. The Jays have hit only four home runs in their last 11 games. Not surprisingly, three of the home runs came in two of the three victories. Toronto continues to lead baseball with 93 team home runs, which is crucial to the clubs attack. Of the 338 runs the Jays have scored this season, 147 (43.4 per cent) have come via the long ball. Jose Bautista hasnt hit a home run in 11 games, his longest power drought of the season. Hes still hitting for a respectable average, .275 with five of his 11 hits going for doubles, but the Jays miss his power bat as the club struggles, having scored three or fewer runs eight times in the span. This is a phase, both for the individual and for the ballclub, Bautista said, that was bound to happen. "If you can execute every single day for 162, youd probably win 140 games," said Bautista. "We dont expect to execute every single day. But we do have to pick it up. Its one thing, were running into some St. Louis good pitching, soome other pitching staffs. Jozy Altidore Jersey. I dont want to speak badly or worse about the Yankees or the Orioles but its not the same. We faced much better pitching at home during the last homestand than we have on this road trip, except for Tanaka, who did a tremendous job. So we shouldve won some of these games that we lost." It hasnt helped, either, that Edwin Encarnacion has hit only one home run in the last 11 games. "Weve lacked some timely hitting," said Bautista. "Our pitching has been there enough, I think, that we shouldve won some of these games that weve lost. We just need to keep going on offence. We got really hot at one point and kind of hitting a little cold spurt now. Weve just got to overcome it and not get 10 hits a day but get them when you get the baserunners on." Bautista has repeatedly acknowledged hes bought in to hitting coach Kevin Seitzers philosophy of using all fields. The slugger has become a better all round hitter. His 1,000th career big league hit, achieved in the eighth inning of Wednesday nights loss, was a double to right field. That alone would have been a story last season. This year its commonplace. "I think Im more aware of some situations where people are going to keep challenging me inside, especially when Im behind in the count or theres the right situation when theres a defensive shift," said Bautista. "Why not try to go over there and it ended up working out again? But the previous at bat I tried going that way and I hit into a force out, when Melky got forced out at second. So it works sometimes, sometimes it doesnt." Its difficult to watch a team go into a funk, especially when it had become customary for fans to watch Toronto out-slug and, often, out-pitch opponents. Despite the recent struggles, the Jays offence remains top 10 in important statistical categories: Home runs 93 (1st)On-base percentage - .329 (5th)On-base plus slugging percentage - .760 (2nd)Walks 243 (9th) Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
