Result: Fleetwood Town fightback stuns Bristol City

Bristol City are forced to settle for a point as Fleetwood Town battle back from 3-1 down to draw with the League One leaders.

Bristol City were denied a fifth consecutive victory after Fleetwood Town came from 3-1 down to earn a draw at Highbury Stadium.

Midway through the first half, the home side hit the front when a long-range Josh Morris effort proved too good for Frank Fielding.

City needed Fielding to keep out a fizzing effort from David Ball as the game threatened to get away from the League One leaders.

However, the visitors were back on level terms when Joe Bryan found Kieran Agard and the former Rotherham United forward tucked the ball past Chris Maxwell.

Two minutes into the second half, City took the lead for the first time as Aaron Wilbraham played in Agard and the forward bagged his third goal since joining the Robins.

By the 51st minute, Steve Cotterill's men had put daylight between the sides as Agard turned provider for Wilbraham, who calmly slotted into the bottom right corner of Maxwell's net.

Fleetwood pulled a goal back when Morris played in Jamie Proctor and the second-half substitute headed the ball beyond the reach of Fielding.

City looked likely to score again and almost did when Korey Smith saw his 77th-minute effort saved by Maxwell.

However, they were pegged back in the 89th minute when Stephen Dobbie rifled home to give Town a point, but Peterborough United's loss at Yeovil means that the Robins now have a five-point lead over second-placed MK Dons.

Steve Cotterill stands on the touchline during his stint as Nottingham Forest on January 17, 2012.
