Chaplin furthermore also can maintain added a second, but he fired over at the come post.

The purpose used to be now not lower than Barnsley deserved and for ten minutes they dominated, but crucially did now not catch a third purpose to originate determined a nervous enact.
Cardiff were organising very minute but from nothing they grabbed an equaliser when Lee Tomlin’s ability and vision offered an opening for replace Danny Ward who fired into the roof of the rating to feature the stage for a grandstand enact.
Marlon Pack volleyed over and Tomlin dragged huge because the hosts pushed for a winner, which at final came deep into added on time when Tomlin crashed the ball house at the abet post as Barnsley did now not determined.
