Bradford City fought back from two goals down to claim a dramatic draw at Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United.

Jamie Murphy gave the hosts an early lead when he met Tony McMahon's deep cross at the back post.

Harry Maguire made it 2-0 when he headed home Jose Baxter's corner.

The Bantams pulled a goal back through a deflected strike from Gary Jones before James Hanson reacted quickest to George Long's parry from a Jones free-kick to level.
