Bradford’s search for a long overdue league one win goes on, however they battled back to earn a good 2-2 draw at Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.

When the Bantams went into the half time break two-nil down to the Blades at Bramall Lane a defeat looked highly likely but a second half fightback saw a point gained.

Steve Parkin praised the character and fight that was shown with the spirit among the squad proving key in this.

The assistant boss said: ‘That was some game and our lads showed lots of character to come back from two goals down.

‘We spoke about the importance of getting an early breakthrough at half-time and that’s what happened.

‘We built from there and showed a huge amount of spirit.

‘There was plenty, in all fairness, from both sets of players out there because we knew that United, despite what the table might say, are in really good form.

‘We knew we’d have to battle and we knew we’d have to fight. We showed all of those qualities and got our rewards for that.’

First half goals from Jamie Murphy and Harry Maguire had the Blades well in control but a goal just after half time from Gary Jones was exactly what Bradford needed with James Hanson bagging the equaliser.

Parkin went on to add that this basically gives Bradford something to build on and if they keep the spirit as it is and battled like they did the results will come.
