Gabbers opens his account
Marco Gabbiadini equalises at Ashton Gate. Newly-promoted Pools continued their encouraging and unbeaten start to the season with an excellent draw against fancied City. Lee Peacock's superb strike had given the home side the lead but substitute Gabbiadini's deft header earned the point.
