BRISTOL CITY got a taste of their own medicine last Friday night when former loanee Cauley Woodrow bagged an equaliser for Barnsley in the fourth minute of stoppage-time.

The previous week City had themselves scored in the eighth minute of stoppage-time to secure a 2-1 win over Charlton and then scored an 86th minute equaliser against Wigan. In both games City were fortunate to take points off their opponents.

In Friday night’s game at Oakwell, shown live on Sky Sports, City were the better side for the majority of the game. We took the lead at the perfect time; just before the half-time interval. Eliasson, now the player with the most assists in the Championship, floated a free-kick into the box that was met by the head of the unmarked Williams who made no mistake in heading the ball past Collins to give City the lead. The Welsh international has been an inspiring signing and it was announced this week that Williams will be staying at City for the rest of the season, which is great news.

City doubled their advantage in the 71st minute through Weimann who guided in another Eliasson set-piece delivery and the game looked won. The home crowd went silent and City just had to see the game out. But on 77 minutes Halme’s excellent header gave the Tykes hope. I didn’t like what I saw for the remainder of the game as City dropped deeper and deeper and invited the home side onto us. Bentley was on hand to make a couple of great saves in the City goal but eventually Barnsley found a way through via Woodrow’s scrambled equaliser.

City haven’t played well for four games now but will have to be at their best against local rivals Cardiff City on Sunday (12pm). This game means more than most to City fans who will be hoping for a first win at the Cardiff City Stadium since it opened in 2009.
