Morecambe   0 - 0   Bradford

Morecambe 0-0 Bradford

Morecambe 0-0 Bradford City

Morecambe and Bradford missed a host of chances as they both had to settle for a point while Gareth Evans was also sent off for the vistors.

Both sides hit the woodwork with Phil Jevons curling a free-kick against the bar and Evans, who missed several chances, seeing a cross hit the post.

Evans was later harshly sent off for a foul on Morecambe keeper Barry Roche.

Roche went on to deny Luke O'Brien and Scott Neilson with some superb saves in the final moments of the game.


Bradford City manager Stuart McCall told BBC Radio Leeds:

"I've been in and spoken to the referee and from his angle he thought it was slightly dangerous.

"I said to him that if Evans doesn't go for the ball, I'll bring him off - it's a goal-scoring opportunity.

"They were outstanding and the only thing missing was a winning goal - even with 10 men we still had two or three chances."
