Bakinson praises Robins’ attitude

Tyreeq Bakinson gave credit to his teammates’ ‘fitness and mentality’ as ten-man City came from behind to rescue a point at Hillsborough.

Julian Börner headed the hosts into the lead from close range, before Henri Lansbury was shown a controversial red card for handball. However, the impressive Dan Bentley came to the rescue and guessed the right way to save Barry Bannan’s resultant spot-kick, in what was an action-packed opening 21 minutes.

The Owls continued to withstand pressure in a tense affair as they looked to secure a vital three points, but it was Bakinson who produced a moment of brilliance to snatch a late equaliser from distance to ensure a share of the spoils.

“It’s credit to them [the players] for our fitness and mentality to carry on pressing and running,” he told Robins TV. “It’s always difficult with one less man but I’m glad we could get the job done.

“I think it’s about organisation, especially when one of your players has left, so you have to switch positions around and adapt to the change in the game.

“It was the mentality that we could still get something out of the game, with a real belief to come out in the second half and go for it.

“We were happy with the result but of course we know we have things to work on. It’s good to get a point because that’s better than zero.”

Bakinson celebrates his late equaliser at Hillsborough

Bakinson’s goal of the season contender was his third of the campaign, and the 22-year-old was thrilled to see his drilled right-foot shot nestle into the bottom corner as he helped his side secure their second straight draw.

“I’ve been working on my shooting a bit more so I’m happy to see this one go in,” he continued. “Credit to the team to keep on trying, especially after having a man sent off, so I was happy to get a point away from home.

“We already know that every game is a tough game, but we have to go into the Wycombe Wanderers match with the right mindset and play to win all the time.”

Nigel Pearson takes his side to Adams Park on Wednesday evening (April 21st), with the match kicking-off at 7pm. Supporters can watch all the action on Robins TV from 6.30pm.
