SHOCK­ING PEN MARS MAR­LEY’S CUP NIGHT

The Football League Paper - - CHRIS DUNLAVY -

THE sim­ple fact is that goals win matches – and Barns­ley striker Mar­ley Watkins ad­mits he must quickly find his clin­i­cal edge at Oak­well.

Watkins, who signed from In­ver­ness Cale­do­nian This­tle over the sum­mer, missed a penalty against Scun­thorpe in mid­week and with a num­ber of other Tykes marks­men breath­ing down his neck, the 24-year-old is keen to start find­ing the net.

“It was a shock­ing penalty,” said Watkins. “I need to be more clin­i­cal and miss­ing a penalty didn’t help.”

Barns­ley won 7-6 on penal­ties af­ter a 1-1 draw against the Iron in the Cap­i­tal One Cup.
