A stunning 20-yard strike from Jason Koumas earned Tranmere Rovers a draw at fellow strugglers Bristol City.

The Welshman curled a right-footed shot into the top corner of the net with just 10 minutes remaining as the visitors twice came from behind.

Sam Baldock put the hosts ahead as his cross went in off the post before Jake Cassidy levelled with a fierce shot.

Derrick Williams headed in his first City goal from Baldock's chipped cross before Koumas snatched a point.

The result means both teams sit just two points above the League One relegation zone.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bristol City manager Steve Cotterill told BBC Radio Bristol:

"We looked tired and it was something I feared, which is why I tried to whip it up a bit after the Brentford game.

"It's all caught up with us. We didn't have that spring in our step.

"It's important on days like today that we don't get beat. The one thing we did do was try to win the game.

"A bit earlier on, when I'd first arrived, that would have been a game we would have been beaten in. That's the positive side of it."
