Barnsley 2 – Bolton 2
There was an absolutely enormous match at the foot of the Championship table on Saturday.
Barnsley, third bottom of the league, had the opportunity to escape the drop zone with a win over Bolton.
Bolton, who started the day fourth bottom of the division, were two points clear of Barnsley.
And that’s the way the table remains on Saturday night, after the sides played out a 2-2 draw at Oakwell.
Gary Gardner fired Barnsley ahead in the 22nd minute, and it looked like that’s the way the match would end until the final stages. An Adam Le Fondre leveled the scores in the 82nd, before Craig Noone fired Bolton ahead in the 85th.
On-loan Swansea striker Oliver McBurnie was the hero for Barnsley with an equaliser in injury time.
Bolton foul on Oli McBurnie
After the Bolton game, Barnsley fans are sharing a photo of a shocking foul on Oli McBurnie.
The Swansea forward was seen being grabbed by his neck by an opportunity in a shocking off the ball incident.
Yet McBurnie’s attacker only received a yellow card for his appalling behaviour.
Reaction after Barnsley drew 2-2 with Bolton is below.
Here @FA – how can you demand a respect campaign when one of your employees thinks grabbing @oli_mcburnie round the neck is only a yellow card? Absolutely embarrassing refereeing. pic.twitter.com/lmsCkzmZze

Moore gets booked for two nothing debatable fouls. Beevers does the same and goes straight through hammill in first half no yellow. Gets booked in second half he should have walked too
