JIM O'Brien's second-half strike earned Barnsley a deserved away point at Ipswich on Friday night.

The hosts, managed by Barnsley-born Mick McCarthy, took the lead through Daryl Murphy's powerful header just before the break.

O'Brien, who came on as a substitute, levelled with a 70th-minute volley to earn the Reds a point.Four minutes from time, Jason Scotland had a chance to win the match for Barnsley but his shot could only find the side netting.

"I felt for a few weeks that we were on the verge of a good run," David Flitcroft said.

"Our defending is improving and we have had a settled team which has certainly helped."We went toe-to-toe with a quality team in Ipswich and deserved a point, if not more.

"Jim O'Brien was the catalyst for us to get on the front foot. He has trained excellently and he has supported the side while being out of the team. I was delighted with his performance."

Next up for the Reds is a home match against South Yorkshire rivals Doncaster on Saturday.
