Battling Performance Pleases Robins

Battling Performance Pleases Robins

Mark Robins was disappointed not to take something from the game at Oakwell tonight against QPR.

The Reds went down 1-0 to the league leaders thanks to a first minute strike from Adel Taarabt.

Robins told Barnsley Player: 'I thought we did quite well. Barring the first 90 seconds I was fairly pleased.'

The Reds had the majority of posession, firing thirteen shots on goal with five on target to QPR's one - the goal.

Robins continued: 'The disappointing thing is that we weren't able to make any of the chances that we did make count.'

On another day the Reds might have taken a point from this game, with Harewood and Gray spurning good chances in the first half and Jacob Butterfield hitting the outside of the post with five minutes left to go in the second half.
