CAULEY WOODROW ON QPR DRAW

21 August 2021

Despite grabbing a landmark goal for the Reds, our captain was naturally disappointed with Saturday's result at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

The forward bagged his 50th goal for the club on the way to helping his side to a two-goal half-time lead away at QPR in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off, but Barnsley were pegged back by their high-flying hosts after the break.

Woodrow told us the performance in the opening 45 was 'unbelievable' but rued the way that a big victory slipped from their gasp so easily in Shepherd's Bush. 

"First half, we were unbelievable. It's the best we've played (this season) and it's one of the most enjoyable first half performances I've had in a Barnsley shirt.

"We were all over a very good side who'd started the season really well. We went 2-0 up and were cruising in the game, but it's a disappointing feeling overall because we let them back into the game and didn't finish them off with the chances we had."

Whilst most people of a Reds persuasion might have seen a point on the road at QPR as a positive result pre-match, it's natural to feel disheartened to lose a two-goal lead. 

The skipper believes the signs are there that point to another prosperous season. 

"It's disappointing," he explained.

"But a point isn't a terrible result and we'll rest and then get ready for next weekend against Birmingham City. 

"We're getting used to the new style and as the games and the weeks go by we will only get better and better."

The 26-year-old striker is into his fourth campaign for the Reds and his poacher's effort midway through the first half took him to a half century for Barnsley. 

A modern day club legend, Cauley was understandably happy to reach such a milestone even if he couldn't celebrate it with three points.

"It's a big moment for me and something I'm really proud of personally, so I'm glad to have got that today. But I'm still disappointed with the game, we should have won that one."
