Swansea 2-2 Barnsley

Jason Scotland celebrates his late equaliser at Liberty Stadium
Jason Scotland celebrates his late equaliser at Liberty Stadium

Jason Scotland produced a dramatic finish, hitting home in the fourth minute of injury time to earn the hosts a draw at Liberty Stadium.

Jamal Campbell-Ryce's left-foot shot was parried by goalkeeper Dorus de Vries and Jonathan Macken slotted home the rebound after 49 minutes.

Ashley Williams was adjudged to have handled in the box seven minutes later and Campbell-Ryce converted.

Scotland hit back after 66 minutes and his late strike levelled the scores.

Swansea manager Roberto Martinez:
"The first half is the most sluggish we've been this season, we never got going.

"The second half we didn't start well at all and Barnsley took advantage and we got heavily punished.

"Then all of a sudden we click again and we played the best football at the end.

"Joe (Allen) coming in and made a huge influence from midfield… Jason Scotland's performance deserved a hat-trick."

Barnsley boss Simon Davey:
"I'm frustrated we let a goal with 15 seconds to go and that hurts.

"I felt we came to Swansea, who are a good side especially at home, and had a game plan and it worked.

"We got ourselves 2-0 in front and we looked comfortable, then the game changed.

"We gave [Jason] Scotland too much room. I warned the players before the game and at half time and unfortunately they didn't take it on board and we've been punished."
