Forss: 'A very big game'

22 February 2022

Finnish forward Marcus Forss says tonight’s Yorkshire derby against Barnsley is a massive fixture for both teams.

Shota Arveladze’s men will be looking to extend their 13-point advantage over the relegation zone, while the bottom-of-the-table Tykes will be trying to reduce their nine-point gap from safety.

“It’s a very big game,” said Forss.

“The games are coming thick and fast so you always have to concentrate on the next one when the other one is over so it’s a very big game and I’m looking forward to it.

“We’ll look to take the positives from our last performance against Queens Park Rangers and will look to improve heading into this fixture.”

The 22-year-old deadline-day signing from Brentford netted his first goal in black and amber as his first-half strike secured the Tigers a point at QPR, becoming the first Finnish player to score for the Tigers.

“I’ve loved it here so far in my two weeks!” said Forss.

“I’m trying to fit in the system, learn new things, getting to know my new teammates and how they all play and what they want from me so it’s been a learning curve.

“However, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it playing football again week in, week out - it's brilliant and long may it continue.”
