Bradford City 1-1 Colchester United

Filipe Morais
Filipe Morais has now scored two in two games after netting at Chelsea in the FA Cup

Filipe Morais scored a late equaliser for Bradford as they secured a point at home to Colchester.

Striker Chris Porter gave the U's an early lead with a curled effort after being played through by Tom Lapslie.

As the Bantams pushed forward, Sammie Szmodics and Gavin Massey went close to doubling the visitors' lead.

However, after Morais had a shot deflected onto the post, he then latched onto Jon Stead's cross to salvage a draw for the hosts.
