Pre-Season Update

Last updated : 21 July 2007 By Rob Miles (barnsley Boy)

£200,000 purchase Kayode Odejayi continued to show his promise in today's preseason friendly against Portuguese Second Division side Louletano DC at the Estadio Algarve.

Odejayi grabbed a brace to take his tally to 3 in 2 games as The Reds claimed their first pre-season victory with a 3-2 victory. Northern Ireland international Grant McCann notching the other.

Barnsley, like at Morecambe, started slowly and fell behind early before Odejayi levelled things up midway through the first half.

Grant McCann notched a beauty before Louletano drew level but Odejayi again proved the hero notching the third after the break.

There was one concerning omission from the team though. Peruvian international Miguel Mostto was again absent despite reports earlier in the week that he would feature at some point...

New signings Rob Kozluk, Dominik Werling and Kayode Odejayi all started with Andy Johnson coming on for Sam Togwell at half time and Marciano Bruma replacing Kozluk on the hour

BARNSLEY: Colgan, Kozluk (Bruma 60), Werling, Reid, Atkinson, Devaney (Heslop 70), Howard, Togwell (Johnson 45), McCann, Odejayi (Butterfield 70), Ferenczi (Coulson 60).
Subs: Letheren.
