Marcus Tudgay's 34th-minute penalty cancels out Joel Grant's opening goal as Barnsley hold Yeovil Town to a 1-1 half-time scoreline at Oakwell.

Marcus Tudgay cancelled out Joel Grant's earlier effort as Barnsley held Yeovil Town to a 1-1 half-time scoreline at Oakwell in the Championship this afternoon.

The visitors took the lead within 10 minutes, as Grant's effort wrong-footed Tykes goalkeeper Jack Butland and found its way into the back of the net.

Refusing to rest on their laurels, the Glovers went in search of a second and came within inches of finding it, with Joe Edwards striking the post following patient build-up play from Town.

Gary Johnson's men dominated but soon found themselves pegged back against the run of play.

Tomasz Cykwa was fouled by Byron Webster inside the area and Tudgay kept his nerve from 12 yards and levelled matters.

The hosts came close to inflicting a sucker-punch in the closing stages of the first half, but Jacob Mellis's goal-bound effort was headed off the line by defender Shane Duffy to ensure parity at the interval.
