Gray double leaves Robins smiling

13 March 2011 07:30
Barnsley manager Mark Robins was delighted with the character shown by his side to come from behind twice in a 2-2 draw at promotion-chasing Cardiff. The Bluebirds had led through a superb Peter Whittingham volley after 21 minutes and Dekel Keinan's first goal for the club eight minutes from time, but on both occasions Tykes substitute Andy Gray levelled as Cardiff missed the chance to move into the automatic promotion places in the npower Championship table. Robins said: "A point was the least we deserved, we committed players forward and had midfield runners and we kept their big guns quiet for the most part, although it was goal of the century stuff for their first one. "We showed character, resilience, all the things you expect from a battling performance away from home. We haven't picked many things up away from home this season but we can do. That belief has to be there, a bit more belief and we could have gone on and won the game." Of Gray's double, he added: "We have had a number of strikers that have come in and had an opportunity, but that quality is still there. He has worked hard, been patient and he really deserves that. "I don't mind who is in the side as long as they put in a shift, and he and Marlon (Harewood) linked up well."
