The Tykes crashed out of the FA Cup as Paul Hayes netted the only goal in the third-round clash at Glanford Park on Saturday.[LNB]"This was a competition I really wanted to go further in," said Robins. "I'm disappointed, we never really seemed to get going.[LNB]"We didn't reach the standards which we have been setting ourselves in recent games.[LNB]"I don't really know why, perhaps it was over-confidence from the players.[LNB]"When you get that this game has a habit of kicking you in the teeth and that's what's happened to us.[LNB]"We had enough chances to have at least earned a replay but we did not work hard enough to get the result we wanted."[LNB]Barnsley were sunk by a goal after 68 minutes from their old boy Hayes.[LNB]He pounced at the far post to convert a cross from Jonathan Forte for his seventh goal of the season.[LNB]Earlier, Scunthorpe had missed a couple of good chances when first Garry Thompson and then Forte failed to find the target.[LNB]Barnsley, too, missed a golden opportunity to get back on level terms when striker Daniel Bogdanovic finished wastefully after working himself a good opening.[LNB]It was a perfect return to football for Scunthorpe's centre-back Kenny Milne, who came on at half-time for his first game in 17 months after recovering from a career-threatening knee injury.[LNB]"I'm delighted for Kenny," said manager Nigel Adkins. "He has gone through in the last 17 months what no player should have to.[LNB]"He's had two operations on his knee and worked so hard to get himself back in contention.[LNB]"He was on the bench because of a number of injuries which we have.[LNB]"For us, it's a great start to a new year and a great start to a new decade.[LNB]"We wanted to progress in this competition and now we're hoping for a big draw in the fourth round."[LNB][LNB] FA Cup.
