Bradford City 2-2 Fleetwood Town

Nathan Pond
Nathan Pond's striker was his first goal since January 2014

Two late goals saw Fleetwood stage a late comeback to earn a draw at League One play-off rivals Bradford City.

The Bantams went in front when Jon Stead scored after Chris Maxwell failed to hold Billy Clarke's cross.

Christopher Routis then squeezed in James Hanson's far post cross as the hosts looked in complete control.

But Fleetwood pulled a goal back when Jamie Proctor headed in Tyler Hornby-Forbes' cross before Nathan Pond fired home in a stoppage time scramble.

Fleetwood occupy 10th spot, four points outside the play-offs places, with Bradford a further two places and one point further back.
