Much like Bolton's goal in the first half, Barnsley's equalizer came much against the run of play. Bolton Wanderers were firmly in the ascendancy after the break with everyone looking like they had just chugged a Red Bull in the locker room. In what seems to be a recurring theme though, Bolton failed to take their chances. The whites put quite a few shots on target with Luke Steele saving all of them.
Barnsley manager Keith Hill made a couple of attacking substitutions and they look to have worked for the Tykes. The equalizer came from long range with Craig Davies hitting it from about 25 yards out. The ball flew low and looked like it could go just wide. It did, however, creep in, hitting the back of the net after smacking the post.
Barnsley nearly found a winner an 82nd minute winner through Marcus Tudgay after Adam Bogdan's initial save fell right to the forward. Bogdan threw himself in front of Tudgay on the rebound and made a brilliant save.
