Bradford 2-2 Bristol Rovers

Bradford 2-2 Bristol Rovers

Michael Flynn's second penalty, in stoppage time, rescued a point for Bradford against Bristol Rovers.

Rovers scored when Matt Gill's cross went over Bradford keeper Matt Duke's head and was nodded in by Matt Harrold.

Bradford levelled when Jamie Devitt was tripped in the box by Harrold, allowing Flynn to score from the spot.

Rovers regained the lead through Eliot Richards' long-range strike, but Flynn scored another penalty after Devitt's shirt was pullled by Lee Brown.


Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"It was an exciting game to watch. I felt we deserved at least a point out of it. I was delighted with some of the football we played at times.

"The only complaint I had is I felt we took our foot off the gas when we got it to 1-1. Sometimes you get that, you put a big effort to get back into the game and I could just sense the team thought they'd done it.

"With the attacking players we've got, it has to give us belief we can win games, and the little bits of organisation we have to get right, we can let our attacking players play like they did today."
