Port Vale 1-1 Bradford City

Jamie Proctor's debut goal earned 10-man Bradford a point away at fellow League One mid-table side Port Vale.

Ajay Leitch-Smith gave Vale the lead when he got behind the Bantams' defence from Anthony Grant's pass and slotted home his eighth goal in 13 matches.

Bradford then had midfielder Lee Evans sent off for a late tackle on Grant.

But they levelled when ex-Vale winger Mark Marshall crossed in for Proctor to score in his first match since joining on loan from Fleetwood.
