Barnsley boss welcomes Chelsea clash

Barnsley manager Simon Davey believes facing Chelsea at home in the sixth round of the FA Cup is a "good reward" for beating Liverpool on Saturday.

"I'm very pleased, it's fantastic to draw Chelsea at home. We wanted a home tie and to get Chelsea is brilliant," Davey told Sky Sports News.

"In the last round against Liverpool, 6,000 Barnsley fans came to Anfield - now we can fill our stadium against another fantastic, world-class team. It's a good reward for beating Liverpool in the last round.

"We played Blackpool, then Southend, then we were looking for a big club. To draw Liverpool at Anfield was fantastic for us. We won that, and now we have the chance to play against more world class players at home.

"We've got a fantastic home record at the moment and hopefully we can continue it and get into the semi-finals."
