A spirited second half response from Barnsley saw the South Yorkshire side end City's unbeaten start to their away fixtures this season.

Phil Parkinson's men were given a tremendous start to the Yorkshire derby in front of the Sky Sports cameras when Jason Kennedy opened the scoring after only 44 seconds but Barnsley fought back after the break to claim the win.

Kennedy's first minute goal came about thanks to neat approach play by Yeates, allowing the midfielder to fire low into the far bottom corner from just inside the box after being teed up by the Irishman.

The hosts levelled things up early after the break, however, when Rory McArdle inadvertently headed a wide free-kick delivery from Conor Hourihane into his own goal. Barnsley then completed their turnaround less than twenty minutes later when Sam Winnall swept home Lewin Nyatanga's low cross into the box.

With City playing with Andrew Davies in attack and only three at the back by this stage, Barnsley added a third in the final seconds of the game. Hourihane's dangerous drive into the box was held up by a well-timed tackle from McArdle but the ball broke free to substitute Kane Hemmings, who drilled a low first time shot past Jordan Pickford from just inside the area.

HT: Barnsley 3 Bradford City 1
90+5min: GOAL - Barnsley 3 Bradford City 1 - Barnsley wrap up the points in the dying seconds of the game through substitute Hemmings. Hourihane's drive into the box is halted by a fine tackle from McArdle but the ball breaks free to Hemmings, who drills home past Pickford from just inside the box.
90+4min: SUB -
Barnsley bring on Leroy Lita for Cole.
90+2min: SUB - Barnsley bring on Kane Hemmings for Winnall.
90min: Hourihane turns away Kennedy deep inside City's penalty box but the midfielder's angled effort across goal on his weaker right foot is slashed wide of the target.
87min: Bennett stands up a testing left footed cross into the box but Mclean, who is on the stretch, can only head over from a decent position in the middle.
86min: SUB - Seconds later, the Bantams bring on Mason Bennett for Darby. With City now playing with three at the back, Davies will take over the captain's armband.
86min: SUB - Barnsley bring on Reece Brown for Williams.
81min: Cole gets the better of Davies over on Barnsley's right flank before firing the ball low across the area. Winnall tries to steal in for his second of the game but Darby is crucially a second ahead of him and kicks the ball behind for a corner.
79min: SUB - The Bantams bring on Oliver McBurnie for Clarke.
79min: After being released by Yeates, Kennedy fizzes the ball across the six yard box - just in front of Clarke in the process.
72min: After picking up a pass from Hourihane inside the box, Winnall turns inside before firing in an angled strike across goal that Pickford pushes away.
A purposeful run from Morais eventually ends in the Portuguese attacker drilling a low shot-come-cross across the area, narrowly missing Clarke in the middle in the process.
65min: GOAL - Barnsley 2 Bradford City 1 - Barnsley have the lead for the first time when Nyatanga's low cross into the box is converted by Winnall when the striker fires low into the bottom corner by Pickford's near post.
Cole runs at pace at a retreating City defence as the attacker moves menancingly into the Bantams penalty box. Davies and Darby try crowd out the pacey attacker before the presence of team-mate Winnall seems to complicate matters for Cole as the ball eventually rolls out of play for a goal-kick.
62min: SUB - The Bantams bring on Filipe Morais for Knott.
59min: Cole plays Williams into space outside City's penalty area. The Fulham loanee runs for the box with Houirhane in support over on the far side before electing to shoot, with his effort by partially blocked by McArdle, allowing Pickford to claim the ball easily as it loops up into his path.
55min: Winnall takes aim from around 30 yards out but the effort flies narrowly wide of Pickford's far post.
54min: YELLOW CARD - Cole is booked for a late lunge on Kennedy midway into City's half.
48min: GOAL - Barnsley 1 Bradford City 1 - The hosts equalise early into the second half when the ball heads into the bottom corner following Hourihane's flighted free-kick from wide into the box. On first glance it seems like Nyatanga has headed the ball in but replays appear to suggest that the last touch actually came off McArdle.
46min: YELLOW CARD -
Lewin Nyatanga is booked for late tackle on Liddle just inside City's half.
46min: Barnsley restart the game.
HT: Barnsley 0 Bradford City 1
There will be two minutes of time added on at the end of the first period.
45min: Hourihane's clipped ball into the area is met by Winnall but the striker's glancing header is repelled by a stretching Pickford before it can sneak inside the far post.
44min: Hourihane turns away from Clarke's attempted sliding tackle before firing in a rising drive from just outside the box that sails over Pickford's crossbar.
42min: Clarke's neat little pass into Yeates see the attacker in crossing shape deep in Barnsley territory. Yeates looks the fire the ball dangerously across goal but his low cross is blocked out by the near post.
37min: YELLOW CARD - Sheehan is booked for stopping Barnsley's Berry from taking a quick throw-in midway into the hosts' half of the pitch.
35min: Winnall's fierce rising drive from an angle inside the area skims the top of Pickford's crossbar before flying behind for a goal-kick.
27min: Hourihane's low effort direct from the resulting free-kick is well held by Pickford.
26min: YELLOW CARD - Gary Liddle is booked for bringing down Ryan Williams with a tackle from behind a few yards outside City's penalty area. Unfortunately for the midfielder, that is his fifth booking of the season, meaning he will miss next Saturday's home match with Sheffield United due to suspension.
25min: Clarke tries his luck from distance but his left-footed drive sails comfortably over Ross Turnbull's bar.
21min: Alan Sheehan's low corner into the middle is flicked on by Rory McArdle before Billy Clarke stabs the ball wide from close range with a first time shot while under pressure from Martin Cranie.

8min: Luke Berry takes aim from outside the box and Jordan Pickford has to stretch up to tip the rising effort over the bar.
4min: Goalscorer Kennedy and Barnsley's Lewin Nyatanga both require a spot of attention from their respective physios after clashing heads as the pair both go for the ball in the air. The two of them are both able to continue a minute or so later though.
1min: GOAL!!!!!!! Barnsley 0 Bradford City 1 - The Bantams take the lead through Jason Kennedy after only 44 seconds! Mark Yeates picks out the run of Kennedy around the edge of the area and the midfielder coolly slots the ball low into the far bottom corner.
