17 October 2009 04:57
Barnsley winger Adam Hammill lashed home from an acute angle to hand his side a fourth league win in seven matches under new manager Mark Robins.Doncaster dominated possession, Martin Woods going close before Dean Shiels fired against the crossbar. Barnsley were soaking up sustained pressure but against the run of play Iain Hume clipped in a corner and Hammill created space to fire home. The hosts pushed hard for a deserved equaliser but to no avail. Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll: "Getting beaten when you have outplayed the opposition is something of a common theme for us. "We've been here before but, if we perform like that every week, I will have no complaints. "We don't score goals. Any man in the street can tell you that. To score you need to create chances and we do. We have most of the attributes, we are just missing that little bit at the end." Barnsley manager Mark Robins: "We were under the cosh for a lot of the game, but we kept our shape and that's important. "Once we got the goal we improved a lot. There was a bit of anxiety in our play and that was apparent until we scored and then we got a lift and some confidence. "From my perspective that's a magnificent three points. This is a tight league and a win like that has a big effect."
