Barnsley came from two goals down to secure a point against Yorkshire rivals Bradford.

The Bantams came into the game on the back of a perfect run in Yorkshire derbies this term and a brace from Dean Windass looked like being enough to extend their record, but they were undone by a second half fightback from The Tykes.

Michael Chopra and Antony Kay netted the goals that extended Barnsley's unbeaten run to 12 games.

Both sides traded blows early on, with Bradford having a goal chalked off on 12 minutes and Chopra hitting a post for Barnsley at the other end.

It was The Bantams who struck first, however, as Windass capitalised on an awful blunder from Kay, who made a hash of a backpass, before rounding the keeper and slotting home.

Bradford doubled their lead on 32 minutes, with Windass firing home from the penalty spot after Nicky Summerbee was felled on the edge of the area.

The Tykes came out strongly after the interval and Chopra netted a firecracker from 25 yards to afford the home side hope.

Barnsley fought hard for a leveller and they were rewarded late in the day when Kay popped up to bundle the ball home from close in and atone for his blunder earlier in the evening.
