'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Barnsley-Watford: Reaction

After collecting a point and a clean sheet at Barnsley, manager Malky Mackay was singing the praises of his under-fire Hornet's.

'I thought it was a fair result. It was two sides going at it. To come up here and go away with a clean sheet against a side that's won three games in a row, I am delighted with them.

'It's not an easy place to come to, I've never had an easy game here. They hit the post twice. I thought it was going to be something from distance that would win the match.'
Mackay told Sky Sports

The gaffer went on to praise his full backs for their display against Adam Hammill and Jim O'Brien as well as revealing that the camp had been struck by a virus:

'We managed to stifle their wingers who have been good in the last few matches. Our full-backs did a very good job against them.

'The first half was a sparring match and in the second half it opened up and both sides had chances. On the road we've been very good without the luck. Today we had a couple of our players suffering from a virus but we were competitive and that's what I asked of them.'

Opposing number Mark Robins' was less than impressed that his side had failed to take maximum points from the clash, having hit the woodwork twice:

'It's another clean sheet at home and the next two games are derby matches but I am disappointed that we didn't do ourselves justice.

We weren't as good as we've been in the past three weeks, that's why I am disappointed because I know we are better than that but I think that some of the football we played was decent.

'We kept giving the ball away. We were looking for a spark to warm the supporters up.

'It was a game between two evenly-matched sides, we didn't pass the ball as we can and they stifled us, but credit to the opposition.'
