West Brom missed their chance to gain points on Fulham and Bournemouth in one of the goalless football scores of the weekend in the Championship. In a game of few chances, West Brom had the best chance when Cedric Kipre hit the post and Jordan Hugill had a shot blocked on the line. The draw meant that West Brom have failed to beat Barnsley since August 1947.
Barnsley’s Poya Asbaghi: “We worked hard defensively against a tough opponent. They are really physical and I think we tried to stand up against them, take on the fight, work hard together and keep a clean sheet. Of course, they will create chances, but in the end, it was a good team effort defensively. But it doesn’t matter about the opponent – we want to win. To be able to win these kind of games, it is difficult to win by outperforming them in physical strength.”
West Brom’s Valerien Ismael: “It’s clear, we needed to score goals to win today. It’s like a broken record every week, exactly the same. We played well and created the chances we needed, but, at the end of the day, it’s all about the desire – the desire to score the goals – and the players need to take responsibility at some point and not be sloppy in front of goal. We know it is difficult; you never know what can happen in such a game. It’s frustrating tonight because we should take the three points.”
