Bradford   1 - 1   Northampton

Bradford 1-1- Northampton

Bradford 1-1 Northampton

Bradford and Northampton each scored a penalty in a scrappy game that saw the home side reduced to 10 men late on.

The Bantams went ahead inside 10 minutes when Jake Speight scored from the spot after Nana Ofori-Twumasi had handled Kevin Ellison's cross.

Shaun Harrad picked himself up to score the equalising penalty after Lewis Hunt had felled him in the area.

In a game where nine yellow cards were shown, Bradford's Jon Worthington was sent off for a second bookable offence.


Bradford City manager Peter Jackson tells BBC Radio Leeds:
"I'm a bit disappointed with the performance.

"We set it all up and it would have been fantastic if we got that victory but the positive is we've not got beaten.

"I thought it was a bit of a scrappy game, we never really got going and we couldn't manage to keep a clean sheet and that penalty has cost us."

Northampton manager Gary Johnson told BBC Radio Northampton:
"I was really pleased with them today. I thought it was a great performance.

"It's the first week I've been able to say 'rust your training. We've been able to get three or four days good work in as there was no midweek game and they went out and they produced what I asked them to produce.

"They've looked more like winners today than I have seen before."
