Robins Rues Late Strike

Robins Rues Late Strike

Speaking after the match on Tuesday night, Tykes manager Mark Robins was tasting defeat for the first time in four games at the City Ground after Guy Moussi`s late winner for Forest sent Barnsley home with nothing, bringing their winning streak to a bitter end. He told Barnsley Football Club`s official website: "It can certainly be a cruel game. I know how Ipswich felt a couple of weeks ago now when we did the same to them, but we have got to take it on the chin."

Robins` Reds were the inflictors of a late defeat for Ipswich Town early on in the month when Jon Macken struck in the last 30 seconds of the game at Oakwell to give Barnsley a 2-1 victory.

Barnsley had kept Forest at bay for over 93 minutes with some very tough defending and could have even nicked it but it wasn`t to be and Barnsley paid the price for a loss of concentration in the final minute: "we switch off to a long, hopeful ball which we have defended well all night." It was a promising away performance from the Reds, who were under the kosh for much of the game, with Luke Steele saving all bar one of Forest`s eleven goal bound efforts.
