Chesterfield   2 - 2   Bradford

Chesterfield 2-2 Bradford

Chesterfield 2-2 Bradford

Substitute Jordan Bowery netted an injury-time equaliser to earn leaders Chesterfield a point against Bradford.

Danny Whitaker drilled the hosts ahead after the ball broke off Jack Lester.

But their lead was shortlived as Bradford's top scorer David Syers was left unmarked and headed in Gareth Evans' left-wing cross at the far post.

James Hanson's header from another Evans cross gave the visitors the lead but Chesterfield stole a dramatic point when Bowery slotted home.


Chesterfield manager John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"We definitely deserved to get something out of the game, but we left it very late.

"If we had kept hold of the lead a little bit longer we could have gone on to win the game comfortably.

"But they got the equaliser, it gave them a spring in their step and they got more involved in the game."

Bradford City manager Peter Taylor told BBC Radio Leeds:
"I treat myself to a Chinese takeaway when I get a win so I was looking forward to that. I'm really disappointed for the players because the way that they worked for each other deserved an away victory.

"We scored two really good goals, so we're disappointed of course but we'll take a lot of positives out of it.

"The character was very good from the players. They are always going to get chances here with the players that they've got, but I thought we looked very dangerous on the break as well and it didn't surprise me when James Hanson got the second goal."
