Woodrow: "We kept going and didn't give up."

Striker hopes Reds' fortunes can change following late leveller

3 October 2019

Cauley Woodrow admits he didn’t know much about his equalising goal that salvaged a share of the spoils against Derby County on Wednesday evening.

The Reds’ forward inadvertently diverted Conor Chaplin’s low drive into the bottom corner in stoppage time as Barnsley came from behind at Oakwell.

“I didn’t know too much about it, but the main thing is that we got a point,” said Woodrow. “I think we deserved a point, overall, but the main thing is that we can go into the weekend before the international break on a high and hopefully get something at Preston.”

That draw brought to an end a run of three consecutive defeats for the Reds, who can count themselves unlucky not to have registered more points in their previous encounters this campaign.

Encouraging displays against Wigan Athletic, Leeds United and Nottingham Forest yielded little reward for Barnsley, but Woodrow hopes his side’s fortune will start to turn following this late rally.

“We’ve played well in spells – a lot of the time it’s been in the first half where we’ve come out flying and done really well, but then we concede quite sloppy goals,” continued the striker.

“That’s no one’s fault; everyone is involved in that, the whole team. We’ve conceded goals that we shouldn’t have and it was a bit bittersweet scoring a 94th minute equaliser.

“I hit the post early on and had a bit of bad luck with a header that hit Toby [Sibbick] on the shoulder, but, on another night, they go in and you’re two or three up at half-time and everything looks good.

“But we kept going, didn’t give up – that’s what the manager wants from us – and, hopefully, our luck will change a little bit.”
