Barnsley 0-0 Bradford City

Bradford are still looking for their first win of the season after a goalless draw at Barnsley.

The Bantams started well and home keeper Adam Davies tipped an acrobatic effort from Rory McArdle over the bar.

Visiting keeper Ben Williams was forced into saves from Sam Winnall and Ben Pearson before Bradford striker Steve Davies chipped wide.

Marley Watkins came closest to a winner when he saw his near-post effort come back off the woodwork in injury-time.
