Robins Calls Performance Unacceptable

Robins Calls Performance Unacceptable

Barnsley's 3-2 defeat to Bristol City turned out to be a sickening defeat. With the game all but lost, the Reds were handed a lifeline through Daniel Bogdanovic's goal, but it was cancelled out with another goal for Bristol City and the sending off of Ryan Shotton.

Speaking to the club's official website, Barnsley manager Mark Robins spoke of the defeat to Gary Johnson's men: 'In the last couple of games, we've not passed it brilliantly and the same can be said for today.' Barnsley's players did look laxed on the ball, in particular the midfield, resulting in a host of chances for the away team.

'We've tried to keep Tuesday night's game out of everybody's thoughts but there was a question over whether the players had let their minds wander a little bit on to Tuesday night's game.' Robins came out in the week saying that the players were all focussed on this match but in truth they looked anything but.

On the exclusion of Jon Macken from the first eleven, Robins confirmed: 'With Tuesday night in mind from my perspective looking ahead we've got Boggy, Humey and Jonathan Macken available. If you lose Macken from today's game you've got a bit of a problem because Gray's cup tied.' So it would seem that Jon Macken is expected to start against his former club Manchester United.

Robins could not be drawn on the future of Jamal Campbell-Ryce however, saying only 'we'll have to wait and see' when asked if the Jamaican winger would come back into the side after being substituted early in the second half.
