We’ve got to look at the positives – Brownhill

Josh Brownhill says City must take the positives after twice coming from behind to secure a point at relegation-threatened Barnsley.

Famara Diédhiou’s first half placement strike and Brownhill’s 90th-minute looping header cancelled out goals from Kieffer Moore and Brad Potts, helping to extend the Robins’ unbeaten run to three matches.

The result leaves Lee Johnson’s side seventh in the Sky Bet Championship, level on points with Derby County and Middlesbrough, who occupy the final two play-off spots on goal difference.

Brownhill told BCTV: “We came here for the win but leaving with a draw is the next best thing. As long as we don’t lose and we get points away from home then there are positives to take.

“Barnsley are a good side. They’re young, hungry, full of energy and we knew that going into the game, but we didn’t perform to the level we know we can.

“It’s always important to fight until the end, we’ve done it before this season and again that mentality has proved beneficial.”

Brownhill’s late equaliser was his fifth goal of the campaign and the 22-year-old was thrilled to rescue a point for his teammates on Good Friday, albeit denying his former club Barnsley of their first home league win since November.

“To come back from a goal down twice shows the character and resilience we have within the team,” he continued.

“It’s always nice to score, no matter what minute it arrives.

“I saw Joe [Bryan] pick up the ball and cross it in so I tried to guide it into the far corner and thankfully it went in.”
