Johnson admits dressing-room angry after Tykes score late

Lee Johnson admitted it was an “angry dressing room” after City conceded a last-minute goal at Oakwell.

The Robins had taken a 2-0 lead with headers from Ashley Williams and Andi Weimann before Aapo Halme's header and Cauley Woodrow's close-range finish shared the points.

Here’s what the head coach had to say afterwards:

Not closing game out

“It’s an angry dressing room to be honest. That’s not a bad thing. We’ve got 45 seconds to see the game out, it’s that simple and we run around very, very green, looking for that leadership from anybody, it doesn’t matter whether you’re 18 or 37. To be that stretched with 45 seconds to go doesn’t make sense to me."

Square pegs in round holes

“We’ve got a little bit of square pegs in round holes at the moment. We have to patch up certain positions with players not quite at the level yet or not experienced enough and that’s unfortunately our situation. We’ve got it in our armoury but unfortunately the players haven’t been available to us."

Influencing others

“You look at everything. Naturally you look at yourself – could I have been a bit more of an influence if I’d been down there (pitchside) in the last 10 minutes. I wish I was playing in that one because at least I could have influenced those around me."

Back to basics

“We are two points off the top – but that’s a side who at two-nil up we should be beating and that’s what disappoints me. We are going to have to get these players going this week and be aggressive in our attitude to defending because it was too easy. That’s three corners we have conceded from now (two against Barnsley and one Wigan Athletic), so it will be back to basics throughout the week.”
