Jacob Mellis salvaged a valuable point for Barnsley with a second half goal at St Andrew’s against Birmingham.
Mellis pounced just after the hour to cancel out Nikola Zigic’s 10th minute opener for the Blues.
Before the match Barnsley announced that Stoke winger Brek Shea has joined the club on an emergency loan.
United States international Shea will spend 28 days with the Tykes. The 23-year-old has made only five appearances for the Potters since signing for them from FC Dallas in January 2013.
