Bailey Wright’s Bristol City have blown the chance to give themselves some breathing space in the Championship top six, throwing away a two-goal lead to draw with Leeds United on Monday morning (AEDT).
The Robins looked on course for a vital win at Elland Road as goals to Famara Diedhiou and Bobby Reid had them cruising 2-0 at the break.
But goals to Pierre-Michel Lasogga and a far-post finish from Kemar Roofe 10 minutes from time saw the match finish 2-2.
It’s the second match in a row Bristol have thrown away victory, having led Sunderland 3-0 at half-time only to draw 3-3 last time out.
Wright against skippered City and got through the full 90 minutes.
The result keeps the Robins in sixth spot, three points ahead of Preston North End, with clashes against fifth-placed Fulham and second-placed Cardiff in their next two outings.
Meanwhile, in the Eredivisie, goalkeeper Brad Jones was flawless for Feyenoord as they secured a much-needed 1-0 win at home against Heracles.
And Kenneth Dougall put in another full shift for Sparta Rotterdam in the heart of midfield as they drew 1-1 with fellow strugglers FC Twente.
Sparta led for the majority of the match but conceded with five minutes left two remain two points adrift at the bottom of the ladder in the Netherlands.
