Port Vale 2-2 Bradford City

Michael O'Connor's injury-time penalty saw Port Vale draw against Bradford.

James Hanson headed into an unguarded net to give the Bantams the lead before Achille Campion scored his first goal in English football to level for Vale.

Filipe Morais drilled in an effort from the edge of the box as the visitors regained the lead.

But keeper Jordan Pickford saw red for fouling Chris Birchall, and O'Connor slotted in the resulting penalty to deny Bradford.
