Bristol news Bristol City player ratings as Bakinson scores his first goal for the Robins MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - Our reporter's take from south Yorkshire.
Breaking News ! Max O'Leary - 6 "Pato, win the seconds..." "Head it awaaaaay!" With no fake sounds O'Leary was audible and loud. Several good saves in the first half and little chance with Helik's powerful header from our restricted view in the press box. Wasn't always convincing on crosses - missing one - but swept up at the back as needed, upon his first league start of the season. Had a running duel with the "lino" in the second half as to whether the ball was out of play after he stopped about three on the touchline. Zak Vyner - 6 Great defending in the first few seconds as he stopped Woodrow shooting. But then switched off as Helik got away and nodded in at a corner after just two minutes. That second switching off - as he looked away - was punished. But steady thereafter and even stepped into midfield in the closing stages as City looked to soak up the pressure, with several good passes setting the Robins away on the counter. Bristol City warm up at Barnsley (Image: Robbie Stephenson/JMP) Taylor Moore - 6 Scuttled about at the back reading play, though maybe was a little too safe with his passing at times, and certainly Holden yelled at him to be more direct to Martin from the sidelines at times. Won the most aerial duels in the game (6). Alfie Mawson - 6 Won plenty of balls in the air as he towered over Woodrow - who he dumped to the ground legally with the shoulder several times - and Chaplin. Beaten too easily by Woodrow in the midpoint of the second half as Hunt stopped a near-certain goal. Jack Hunt - 8 Impressed as he raided down the flank, carrying the ball well and causing danger with several crosses. Smashed in the equaliser two minutes after the break and produced a goal-saving interception to cut out a cross on 68 minutes to stop Barnsley equalising. Best game of the season from the wing-back, but for a loose clearance on 86 minutes. Andi Weimann - 7 Ran hard through the middle and his third-man runs almost saw reward, though the execution was not there at times. Won the ball high up the pitch late in the game to have the visiting dugout purring.

Tyreeq Bakinson - 6 Bypassed a little too easily at times and Mowatt got the better of the crucial midfield exchanges in the first half. But grabbed the vital second goal showing composure to slide in from the edge of the box. Jamie Paterson - 6 Not at his match-affecting best in the first half with a couple of wrong decisions made such as opting not to cross when he could have in the first half. Replaced by Tommy Rowe - 6 Lost possession a little easily at times. Good battle with Williams down their flank and one that Rowe was often on top of. Helped to keep the ball down the Barnsley end late on. Nahki Wells - 7 Won clever free-kicks early on before seeing a shot cleared off the line by Williams, after a poor touch had almost ruined a one-on-one chance after 38 minutes. Heavily involved in the equaliser before taken off after 72 minutes. A good shift. Chris Martin - 7 Overhit a pass to set Weimann free in the box before heading just wide as Hunt's cross spilled up into the air. Set up Wells beautifully with a header after 38 minutes, as the resulting shot was cleared off the line. A few too many sloppy passes though too. But then grabbed his fourth assist of the season to coolly lay across to Hunt to smash in just after the break. Ups and downs. Substitutes Antoine Semenyo (for Wells, 72') - 6 Got the last 20 minutes as he injected some energy in attack. Held the ball up well and had to be hauled down by Andersen late on. Tomas Kalas (for Martin, 78') - 6 Replaced Chris Martin as Vyner stepped into midfield to play alongside Bakinson. Callum O'Dowda (for Paterson, 87') - n/a Did brilliantly to draw a foul and yellow card from Helik and to relieve the pressure for City with a minute to go. And another deep into injury time, before giving away a penalty deep into injury time to gift an equaliser to Woodrow.
