Murphy delighted to get on the scoresheet but frustrated that Town let lead slip

Daryl Murphy labelled the draw against Barnsley as a ‘game of two halves’ with Town edging the first 45 minutes but the Tykes on top in the second.

The striker headed Blues into a first-half lead, his fourth strike of the season, before Jim O’Brien levelled things up for David Flitcroft’s side with 19 minutes remaining.

“It was a game of two halves, we edged the first but Barnsley were better in the second and that’s what has disappointed us,” Daryl told the Club website.  

“We got the goal before half-time and we felt we were doing well but Barnsley pinned us back in the after the break and to be fair to them, they were better than us in the second-half.

“On a personal note I’m delighted to get on the scoresheet, as I haven’t scored for a few games now.

“I felt I was due one and it was nice to find the back of the net, especially from a set-piece as we’ve been working on them in training.”
