Scunthorpe United 1-1 Bradford City

Billy Clarke
Billy Clarke began his career at Ipswich Town

Scunthorpe drew with Bradford City to all but secure League One survival.

Gary McSheffrey slotted the Iron ahead midway through the first-half as he latched on to Hakeeb Adelakun's cross.

Billy Clarke's volley levelled for the Bantams after the break and Tony McMahon almost won it for the visitors in injury time but blazed over.

Scunthorpe are six points clear of the relegation zone and need one point from their final games against Gillingham and Doncaster to guarantee survival.

Scunthorpe boss Mark Robins:

"Is that us safe now? I would think so. We're limping there aren't we?

"I thought we were good tonight and I thought we passed the ball well, we created enough chances and the crowd were brilliant.

"We gave them enough to think about and cheer we just didn't get that second goal which was a disappointment.

"I thought we deserved the win, I thought we played well enough to get the win. Just that elusive second goal would have killed it off.

"Their goalkeeper has made a couple of decent stops and there was a couple of last ditch tackles from their defence."
