Reds squander leads at Ashton Gate. Why don't you let Barnsley FC take your dog for a walk?.yeah that's right, because they can't hold onto a lead! Twice the Reds led at Ashton Gate against turmoil club Bristol City before squandering said leads to only end up drawing 3-3. The Reds made a flying start with Andy Gray netting a fourth minute penalty before firing home Kieran Trippier's cross past England goalkeeper David James. But the Reds inability to cling onto a lead shone through when Marvin Elliott and then Albert Adomah brought the scores level. An eventful first half continued into the second half, when Adam Hammill scored a deflected shot. But when Jay McEveley fouled Ivan Sproule, that gave City a chance to equalise from the spot, which David Clarkson did. Boths sides had chances to win the game when McEveley fired over for the Reds and John Akinde shot wide for the hosts.
