TONY Mowbray says his weary side can play much better than they showed in a convincing victory over Barnsley in the npower Championship.
Seb Hines was on hand to head home a Barry Robson corner and Bart Ogbeche emerged from the bench to chip over Luke Steele.
“It was a difficult match,” said Mowbray, whose side have a pivotal match against Leeds this Sunday to look forward to.
“It’s torture standing there watching it and that’s the Championship. No one makes it easy for you,” Mowbray said.
