Robson: 'Schoolboy Errors Cost Us A Win'

Robson: 'Schoolboy Errors Cost Us A Win'

Middlesbrough's vice captain Barry Robson said they made schoolboy errors to throw-away a 3-1 lead at home to Swansea City on Saturday.

"It's always a better feeling to win when you comeback from a score like 3-1."

HAVE YOUR SAY
Rodgers' side looked like heading for a second defeat in a week when Leroy Lita extended Boro's lead to 3-1, but the Swans struck back amazingly to win 4-3 with goals from Scott Sinclair, Ashley Williams and Craig Beattie in the second half.

Robson said:

'It was schoolboy from us. The goals we lost, it was mistakes,'

'When you make mistakes like we did you will be punished.

'We could have scored more. It was end to end stuff. As I said, when we were 3-1 up we were not under pressure but in the last 20 minutes we were diabolical. You can't afford to play like that at home. We should have killed the game off.

'You learn from mistakes. It is true that you learn more from being beaten than you do from winning. As every individual can learn from this, we need to do better.

'I am not going to name names, football is football. There were 11 of us out there and all of us have to take the blame. We all went home and looked at ourselves, looking to make sure we improve for the next game. It's not going to get any easier.'


Robson also mentioned the fact that they had some youngsters in defence but said the team as a whole were to blame for the defeat:

'We have young lads in defence but it is not about them,'

'It's a team effort and we have to stand up and say it was not good enough. We were 3-1 up against one of the best Championship teams. That showed we can do it.

'Some of these young lads have been playing extremely well. You can't just blame them. It is a team game and for me, I am looking at the next game coming. We will hurt teams going forward and I just wish the next game was tomorrow to put it right.'


Swansea City will be aiming to build on the confidence-boosting comeback-win next Saturday when Doncaster Rovers visit the Liberty Stadium. Manager Brendan Rodgers reckons 9 more wins out of the next 15 games will be enough to achieve automatic promotion to the Premier League.

A soft penalty to concede, Allen wasn't going anywhere really where he was in the box. the ball into the box for the equaliser should have been dealt with and beattie had too much space to fire in the winner. our defending wasn't much better either, set pieces again a problem
