Robins on the up

Bristol City moved out of the npower Championship relegation zone after coming from two goals behind to draw 2-2 with Watford, thanks to an error from the hosts' goalkeeper Scott Loach.

The England Under-21 international let Adrian Mariappa's back-pass slip under his foot and into the net to give the Robins an equaliser within 24 seconds of the second half.

The Hornets had taken the lead through left-back Carl Dickinson's swerving shot and doubled their advantage when Craig Beattie notched his first goal for the club.

But the Robins pulled a goal back just before half-time when Marvin Elliott crashed in a thumping header.

It was the least Derek McInnes' side deserved and they will claim they earned their slice of luck which they got through Mariappa's own goal.

The draw leaves the Robins in 20th, level on points with Nottingham Forest who occupy the last relegation spot.
