Scotland steals point for Swans

When it seemed Simon Davey's men had secured all three points, Jason Scotland fired in a late equaliser for the Swans.

Although the first half provided no goals it was a really entertaining encounter. The opening stages were pretty even but City should have taken the lead when Tudor-Jones found himself free in the area but he fired well over the bar with only Muller to beat.

de Vries was at his best to deny Miguel Mostto's looping 20-yard strike, diving well to his top left-hand corner.

Heinz Muller proved to Simon Davey why he is Barnsley's number one with a world-class double save just before half-time. Tom Butler brought a tidy save from the big German and it seemed Pintado would fire into an empty net but Muller recovered superbly to deny the Swans for a second time in quick succession.

Second Half

The Reds had failed to score in their previous two games but Jon Macken pounced on a parried Campbell-Ryce effort to send the Reds into a 49th minute lead.

Just less than five minutes later, the referee pointed to the spot as Ashley Williams appeared to handle Campbell-Ryce's corner. The little Jamaican himself stepped up to send de Vries the wrong way and the Reds into a two goal lead.

It was inevitable that the home side would throw everything at the Reds and the Swans pulled one back through Scotland in the 66th minute. The big forward turned well and fired a wicked drive past Muller from 20-yards.

Jason Scotland then broke the hearts of the 113 travelling faithful as he had oceans of time in the middle of the park and fired another unstoppable shot into the corner of Muller's goal.
