Saturday's football round-up

  • CHAMPIONSHIP

BARNSLEY 1 - 0 BRISTOL CITY

Bristol City's two-match winning run is over after they lost 1-0 at Barnsley.

Jacob Mellis scored the only goal of the game early in the second half. The home side then had Bobby Hassell sent off for a foul on Jon Stead, but City couldn't force an equaliser.

Sub Steven Davies came closest with a 90th minute free-kick which struck the crossbar.

We knew that Barnsley weren't going to make it easy for us, in the first half we were struggling and we were fortunate to go in at half-time 0-0.

At half-time we changed it to 4-3-3. The goal we give away was a cheap one and it galvanised them.

As the second half went I thought we played better and we should have had a penalty late on when Martyn Woolford's glancing header looped over the keeper and was handled on the line. But the ref didn't give it.

He made two big decisions today; he got one of them right and the other one wrong.

On another day we could have scored two or more but full credit to Barnsley who worked hard to get the three points. But we worked hard as well and we get nothing.

– Derek McInnes, Bristol City manager
