Billy Clarke's second half penalty gave Bradford City a share of the spoils against Oldham Athletic.

Bradford trailed at the interval through Peter Clarke's headed effort for the visitors.

But the Bantams were given the perfect opportunity to level matters 11 minutes into the second half when Josh Cullen was brought down inside the box by Ousmane Fane.

And, with regular penalty taker Tony McMahon missing, Clarke stepped up and sent Oldham goalkeeper Connor Ripley the wrong way to equalise.

Bradford then had a goal chalked off for offside in the final minutes of the game after James Meredith's cross was turned in by Nicky Law.

Bradford boss Stuart McCall said: “I’m disappointed with the result but really delighted with the performance again.

“The way we’re going to lose a goal at the moment is through a set-play because we haven’t got much height in the side.

“But I was pleased with the response. It would have been easy to go long but some of the football was terrific.”
