Robins: It Was Never A Penalty

Barnsley boss Mark Robins was obviously disappointed to see his side concede a late penalty yesterday against Swansea City.

The Tykes were the better side throughout the game and caught the Swans on an off day, and they had chances to increase their lead after an early opening goal.

Rodgers' team barely looked like rescuing a point, but they did thanks to a late controversial penalty, which Robins disagreed with:

'It was never a penalty.

My first impression was it was a penalty. Luke Steele was off balance and it was a tale of two players, one went down and the other was left standing.

'The result is disappointing after we worked hard in the first half. I am disappointed for (new signing) Danny Haynes because he worked hard and had a goal disallowed.

'I am looking forward to working with him and to see him get better.

He can play in a couple of positions and he wants to do well.

He's from London and it's a testament to him that he wants come and play for Barnsley.

'I thought we were excellent in the first half.

If they hadn't have got the penalty I didn't see them scoring.

'I've said to the players that I am proud of their performance today against a side who are second in the league - and they are an excellent side.

'There are one or two pluses to be taken from this game.'

Had a better view than Robins as it was right infront of me and can confirm that the ref made the right decision.
