Barnsley took the lead through Bogdanovic in the 84Th minute, he latched on to a long ball over the top and struck the ball across Given and into the bottom corner. He took it very well although I felt the defending was poor, Richards halted his run towards the 6 yard box and ball watched as the Barnsley player struck the ball.
Petrov scored for City in the 87Th minute to grab us a draw, Ireland put the ball across the box to leave Petrov with an easy tap in.
We didn't play terrible today but we were lacking up top a little when it came to goal scoring chances. We hit the framework a couple of times when we should have scored and there was also a couple of times when we missed and it was probably easier to score.
All in all Barnsley gave us a good game today and I am sure our players will benefit from the game, Rangers is next for us and I would expect us to show our Premier League quality in that game.
