Conor Hourihane chipped in with a crucial assist as Aston Villa earned a 1-1 Championship draw against Bristol City at Ashton Gate.
The hosts took a 16th-minute lead when Andreas Weimann's mazy dribble was halted on the edge of the Villa box and the ball broke to Josh Brownhill, who sent a low right-footed shot into the net from 20 yards, with goalkeeper Orjan Nyland looking at fault.
But Villa hit back in first-half stoppage-time when another Republic of Ireland midfielder, Callum O'Dowda, was penalised for a needless foul and Hourihane's driven free-kick from the left was nodded powerfully home by Birkir Bjarnason from the centre of the box.
A draw was a fair result to a game which saw both teams exert periods of pressure, but home fans appeared happier at the final whistle.

Superb goals from Adam Reach and Mateusz Klich meant Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds shared the spoils at Hillsborough.
The 1-1 result allowed Leeds to edge a point ahead of Middlesbrough at the top of the table while Wednesday remain unbeaten at home in the league this season.
Reach struck spectacularly for the home side with a left-footed long-range strike that went in off the far left post just before half-time.
But visitors Leeds hit back in the 54th minute as Klich - recently on target for Poland against Ireland - curled in an elegant shot from outside the penalty area.
