Wiseman: Barnsley will improveBy Matthew Sadler

Barnsley defender Scott Wiseman insists his side do not fear travelling to Reading tomorrow, despite the Tykes having picked up just one point from their opening three games.
Keith Hill’s side put in a disappointing display on Tuesday as they suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Middlesbrough.
However, Wiseman, who joined Barnsley from Rochdale in June, expects there to be a reaction at Madejski Stadium.
He said: “The mood was low in the dressing room after the game on Tuesday night, and I was at fault for at least one of the goals.
“But as a team we stood up and held our hands up. We spoke as a team and so that’s done now, it’s in the past.
“We’ve got these two very tough away games now, but make no mistake there will be no fear from any of us going to Reading.”
Barnsley have only scored once in their four league and cup games so far this campaign and that was an own goal by Middlesbrough’s Stephen McManus.
Striker Danny Haynes, who joined from Bristol City in January, remains the Tykes’ best attacking threat and he looks set to lead the line again, although Ricardo Vaz Te and summer signing Craig Davies are pushing for a starting place.
