DAVID Templeton says that playing in front of a big crowd away at Oakwell tonight can spur the Brewers on against Barnsley.

Having spent two seasons in the Championship, many members of the current Brewers squad have experience of playing at bigger stadiums in front of bumper crowds on a regular basis, while Templeton played in front of huge attendances regularly when he was with Rangers.

The Scottish winger believes that playing well at big away grounds can help Nigel Clough’s side, as the home supporters cheering against the Brewers should spur them on to play even better.

He said“I like playing at venues like that (Oakwell), especially when you are doing well, and the home fans are against you. I feel it helps you to play better. If I am involved, I will be looking to do well and help the team.

“There were 50,000 at Rangers every week, which was nice, but it can be a difficult place to play when things aren’t going well. Hopefully when we go to Oakwell, the home fans will be against us and it will inspire me to do better.”
