Bradford fought back from behind three times to earn a point at Bristol Rovers on Saturday afternoon, in a game that also saw both sides reduced to 10-men.

Bristol Rovers got off to a flyer when new loan arrival, and former Bantam, Guy Branston (2) headed home to give them the lead but before the half hour mark Bradford were level through Nahki Wells (28).

Tom Eaves (33) soon restored the home sides lead to send them into the break ahead.

10-minutes after the break Carl McHugh (55) levelled again for The Bantams but it didn't take long for Michael Smith (62) to again put The Pirates ahead once more. For a third, and final, time Bradford forced another equaliser shortly after when James Hanson (68) struck.

3-3 is how the game ended but both ended with 10-men with Nathan Doyle sent off for Bradford and Wayne Brown for Bristol Rovers late on.
