Colchester United 0-0 Bradford City

Colchester United and Bradford City had to settle for a point each after a game with few clear-cut chances.

Bradford goalkeeper Jordan Pickford kept out Sanchez Watt's free-kick and a George Moncur volley in the first half.

Mark Yeates forced a save from Colchester keeper Sam Walker in the second period before Freddie Sears' shot for the home side was cleared off the line by Bradford's Stephen Darby.

Sears produced another effort late on but Pickford saved at his near post.
