Brentford 0-2 Barnsley: Post Match Reaction

"The performances, on a whole, have been good all season, but it’s about the result. Today, we made better decisions, that certainly helped us keep a clean sheet, that and ‘Davo’ making some vital saves when he was called upon, towards the end of the game."

"It’s always great to see your strikers score, Arma has somehow managed to hook it in and Sam’s was a great header. We got a lot of shots off today, which shows we were positive in our play and that really pleased me."

"Angus has been great in all the games he’ played so far. Individually, he’s been defending great. His covering and decision making has been particularly impressive and he’s coped with that ‘jump in class’ well."

"We defended well as a unit and each individual made contributions. Generally, when the defensive unit perform as ours did, you’re rewarded with a clean sheet, as we were today."

"Robbo’s hamstring kept him out, and Bradders felt his groin go yesterday morning, so we couldn’t afford to risk them, but they all stand a chance of being fit for next weekend. But the lads who stepped in performed admirably and really have staked a claim for the game against Bristol, next week."

"We knew Brentford were good with the ball, so we had to be good without it and we pressed well. We had spells in the game where we caused them problems with the ball ourselves. In the first half, we tended to get a half chance every-time we strung together 7/8 passes and to create something that regularly, was particularly pleasing. We continued that into the second half and looked a threat on the counter, our performance today really had a bit of everything."
