SMASH AND GRAB: Ten-man Robins steal a draw against Wednesday

 

Ten-man Bristol City snatched a point from relegation threatened Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

The Owls took the lead early on through a Julian Borner header after just four minutes.

Things went from bad to worse for Nigel Pearson’s side when Henri Lansbury was given his marching orders for deliberate handball in the area just 15 minutes later.

However, Barry Bannan's subsequent penalty was saved by Dan Bentley and Wednesday squandered a further string of opportunities to increase their lead.

Tyreeq Bakinson then punished the hosts three minutes from time when he fired home to ensure that ten-man City did not leave empty handed.

 

Frustrated Pearson

 

Despite his sides ability to battle back, Nigel Pearson looked frustrated throughout the match:

"It was a tough afternoon for us. We keep giving poor goals away,” he told BBC Radio Bristol.

"It's players not dealing with their own markers. It's a frustration, it happened twice in the first half, we could have been further behind.

"Obviously the penalty decision made life very, very difficult for us."
