Nine minutes added time. Still 2-2.
GOAL 2-2 Barnsley. Chris O'Grady (pen). 69 mins.
PENALTY Barnsley. 68 mins.
HALF-TIME Barnsley 1 Rovers 2. Great response from Gary Bowyer's side, who fully deserve their lead.
If only David Dunn could play every game. Superb run and set-up, red-hot Rudy Gestede did the rest with his side foot.
GOAL 2-1 Rovers. Rudy Gestede. 44 mins.
Stunning strike from 25 yards from Tom Cairney brings Rovers deservedly level.
GOAL 1-1 Rovers. Tom Cairney. 36 mins.
Superb cross from the right and an equally impressive volleyed finish from the Barnsley debutant. Rovers' positive start undone.
GOAL 1-0 Barnsley. Nick Proschwitz. 29 mins.
Decent chance for Rovers, Rudy Gestede climbing high to meet a Tom Cairney but his header drifted wide. 23 mins. 0-0.
Despite that Barnsley chance, all Rovers and Jordan Rhodes has just tested Luke Steele from the edge of the box. 19 mins. 0-0.
Brilliant save Paul Robinson to deny Nick Proschwitz, who beat the offside trap and was alone in the box.
After an appeal for a penalty for an apparent foul on Jordan Rhodes is turned down, Tom Cairney plays the ball inside the box to Rudy Gestede, whose low deflected drive is saved by Luke Steele's feet.
First-time effort from 25 yards from Tom Cairney forces Luke Steele into smart save low to his left.
The teams are out.
