Veteran Barmby to protect youth

BY foxsports • January 20, 2010

The Tigers are currently third-bottom of the table having not won since the end of November and although that is damaging their hopes of staying in the top flight in the short term Barmby is concerned burgeoning talent like 19-year-old midfielder Tom Cairney and 17-year-old striker Mark Cullen will be lost if they do not stay up. "They're technically very good players with bright futures and hopefully that will be here," said Barmby. "That's why it's imperative for us to keep in the Premier League and keep up the education for these lads."
