Following our 1-0 defeat against Luton Town on Tuesday, Cauley Woodrow believes it just wasn’t our night as we knocked on the door for large parts of the game but couldn’t find a way through.

Barnsley fell behind to Amari’i Bell’s fourth minute opener and had chances to level through Romal Palmer, Callum Brittain, Devante Cole, Josh Benson and Callum Styles.

However, it was just one of those evenings at Oakwell where nothing seemed to go right for the Reds.

“Luton scored early, so we knew it would be tough to get back into the game, especially against a team like them because they’re a tough team to play against,” began Woodrow. “They sit off the ball and make it hard to get through them.

“Unfortunately, the chance at the end didn’t fall right and didn’t go in, but we’re only three games into the season, so we’re not too down and we’re looking forward to Saturday now.

“We had a couple of half-chances, nothing really clear-cut. Callum had a good shot in the first half that was saved, Callum crossed one for Devante who just couldn’t get there and Stylesy had one that dropped a little bit high on the volley.

“So, no real chances where I thought someone should definitely score, I just don’t think it dropped in our favour and, on another day, they do and they go in.”

The Reds’ next assignment is a trip to the capital, where Queens Park Rangers await in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off live on Sky Sports.

It has been a happy hunting ground for Barnsley recently, with impressive victories on our last two visits and the skipper is hoping for similar this weekend.

“We don’t want to be too down; we’ll go into the game on Saturday with high spirits and it’s a game on the tele so, hopefully we’ll put in a good performance and get a win,” he stated.
