Barnsley hitman Gray using Giggs as role model

Veteran Barnsley striker Andy Gray hopes is hoping prolong his career for at least another four years, and is using Manchester United wide-man Ryan Giggs as an example of what can be achieved. The 33-year-old scored his 100th and 101st goals in Saturday's win over Coventry and is pleased his dedication to fitness is continuing to provide rewards.

He said: "It's a nice achievement to reach the 100 league goal mark and there are a few left in me.

"I look at people like Ryan Giggs and I think I can keep on going like that, maybe for another four years. I feel fitter than I've ever done."

Gray has also credited the tactics of Barnsley boss Keith Hill, which have provided him with more goalscoring opportunities.

He said: "The new manager has been fantastic. He wants us to play football and we have been passing some teams off the park.

"His style has helped me, as I'm a big target man. We are getting lots of balls into me - it suits the way I play."
