Robins praise for Hammill

Published Add your comment

Barnsley manager Mark Robins paid tribute to winger Adam Hammill after he scored the winning goal in the 1-0 victory at derby rivals Doncaster.

Rovers looked the stronger side for the majority of the South Yorkshire derby, but failed to convert their chances and paid a hefty price when Hammill snatched a classy winner for the Tykes in the 74th minute. Robins was full of praise for his match-winner, who has now scored three times this season.

"Adam is a good player and a real talent," Robins said. "He still has to learn the defensive side, but he is improving all the time and he is popping up with goals as well. He will take confidence from that and grow. He is only a young kid."

Robins added: "From my perspective that's a magnificent three points. It gets us nearer the middle of the pack.

"This is a tight league and a win like that has a big effect. I'm extremely happy, but we have another tough game coming up against Nottingham Forest."
