Following our 2-0 loss at home to Hull City on Saturday afternoon, Cauley Woodrow expressed his disappointment at not being able to capitalise on the momentum gained from our midweek victory over Derby County.

Despite a good opening period, Barnsley failed to take advantage and were punished by the Tigers, who looked more menacing going forward and were clinical in the final third when it mattered.

“I think we started really well – the first 20 minutes we were all over them – and then I don’t really know what happened, to be honest,” began Woodrow. “We sort of lost our shape and then they scored, and I think it wasn’t such a great day, especially after winning on Wednesday.

“We were on a real high and I think we thought we were going to go into this, play really well and win the game. That’s obviously what we needed and what we wanted to do, but it wasn’t to be.”

Opportunities came and went for the Reds, who had glimpses of goal in either half, but nothing particularly clear-cut as the visitors snuffed out most threats in attacking positions.

Woodrow cited a lack of creativity this term as to why we are in this current predicament and believes it’s something that he and his teammates need to work on.

“I don’t think we had really great chances,” continued the skipper. “Compared to them, we had a lot of half chances; Callum Brittain had a shot and we had a header in the first half. 

“But we really need to start creating more because we’re not at the minute. The other night we did – we scored two good goals – but I think that’s been our downfall this season; we’ve not created enough really good chances for people to score and I think that’s why we haven’t scored goals this year, and that’s why our tally as player isn’t where it needs to be.”
