IAN Holloway hopes the Champions League performances of Bayern Munich and Barcelona in midweek will have inspired his players for their trip to Barnsley.
The German and Spanish giants both recorded impressive victories on English soil, defeating Arsenal and Manchester City respectively.
And Holloway told his squad they could learn a thing or two by tuning in to both games.
He said: "I wanted them to watch the Champions League this week because, in terms of what I talk about and how we try to do things, they'll have seen the best in the world doing it.
"I want us to get on the ball, make little angles so that we can pass it quickly and sharply. It is an education for everybody – it will take a while but I'm seeing an improvement."
Lions boss Holloway believes the improvements in his side's style of play were there for all to see against Bolton last weekend.
"I was very, very pleased with the attitude of the players," he said.
"I think the work rate of the team is back and the fitness is coming. I sent the players for a run on Tuesday and the results were better – someone was 12 seconds quicker than before.
"I saw more of the patterns that I have been talking about. When we let a goal in, my two centre halves just shelled it up in the air again, but after that they calmed down.
"When we did hit long balls in the second half, I thought we hit the right areas and Steve Morison caused them problems when I pushed him to the right.
"Whether I'll play him there again, I'm not sure. I know he can do that and it complemented the other attackers we had, but I need to get the balance right."
