'If It's Football, It's Vital'

O'Connor Off Again

Garry O`Connor decided to return to Oakwell for another loan stint with Barnsley as he was not feeling quite right.

Both Barnsley and Notts County were in for O`Connor, but the player enjoyed his last stint with the Tykes.

Manager Alex McLeish told the Mail: "He asked if he could go out on loan. I said 'fine`.

"To be fair to the big man, he came in for the Blackpool game and did well. I was hoping he would move forward from there.

But he said after the Brentford Carling Cup tie he needed more time."


O`Connor didn`t make the squad for the game with Aston Villa.

McLeish added: "We just feel that he`s a bit rusty, and he`s not going to get in the first team regularly at the moment, and he`s looking for first-team football.

"Cameron Jerome coming back from injury has obviously made it more difficult for Garry as well."

disagree, I think he still has something to offer the club if he can get fit again.
