Robins warns of dangers

Have your say

BARNSLEY boss Mark Robins has warned his side of the dangers in playing Bristol City.

The Reds hosts The Robins on Saturday and Robins is hungry for his team to get back on track having gone three games without a win and been beaten at Crystal Palace last Saturday. “Their threats are numerous, but it’s a good game to look forward to, Bristol are a very good side,” Robins told The Star.

The two sides drew 3-3 at Ashton Gate in August, a fixture which the Reds led 3-1. And last season the Robins came out on top of a 5-3 clash, also at Ashton Gate. At home last term the Reds lost 3-2 and have not beaten the Robins at Oakwell since a 3-0 win in October 2007.

“It’s going to be an interesting game, not least because Danny Haynes and Matt Hill are going to be playing against their former club,” added Robins.

“And for them I think it’s going to be the first time Jamal Campbell-Ryce plays at Oakwell since he left the club. They’ve got a lot of threats there. There’s Nicky Maynard whose doing well for them, Jonathan Stead and Brett Pitman. But as always it’s about what we do and how we perform.”
