Rodgers Happy With A Point At Barnsley

Brendan Rodgers said he was happy to get a point at Barnsley yesterday after a poor first half performance.

Scott Sinclair scored a late penalty after the Tykes went in front early on.

While Robins disagreed with the spot kick decision, Rodgers had the opposite view of it and said:

'I am happy with a point after the first half performance.

'We weren't aggressive enough at defending.

The reaction of the team in the second half was outstanding.

'It was a clear penalty; it was a clearer penalty than the

Barnsley goal looked.

'I was disappointed at how we defended the corner, it was poor defending. I am happy with the second half; they showed the spirit that there is in that group of players.

'It's important when you are trying to build a good side that you have that camaraderie in the team. We sorted one or two things out at half-time.

'Leon Britton came on for the last 15 minutes and did a good job.

It's a very tight league and there are some big clubs involved - and we are proud and happy to be among them.

'I've got a great belief in this group of players. We knew when we came here that Barnsley have one of the best home records in the league, they've won eight out of 13 matches so we knew that this was a tough place to come to.'


It was a disappointing day for the Swans really, a decent chance to keep the momentum going against a team in the bottom half, but we drop to 4th after wins for QPR, Cardiff City and Norwich.

A poor performance really, we have to be looking to win this type of game. Luke Moore continues to dissappoint up front, seems as if Rodgers has made an error in letting go of Easter., time will tell. Barnsley had a make-shift defence and we couldn't exploit it. Surely we have to be more attack minded and quicker getting forward if we want promotion. Saying all that we did get a point from an away game and maybe that's a bonus. Win at home and a point away is ok but the games are getting less and less now.

Dont think you can judge Luke Moore yet. Thought he played well against Palace last week and nearly every player on the pitch yesterday was bad (apart from Dobs) so he just needs games.
