Phil Parkinson's search for his first win as Bradford City boss continues after his side blew a two-goal lead at Burton Albion.

Kyel Reid's fierce effort put the Bantams ahead before James Hanson doubled the lead from a Reid cross.

Billy Kee reduced the deficit from Jimmy Phillips' pass.

The hosts levelled before the interval when Justin Richards slotted home from the penalty spot following Robbie Threlfall's handball.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:

"I thought the performance was poor, but looking at the positives, we came back from a two-goal deficit, so I have mixed feelings.

"I didn't feel our movement was creative enough and I don't think we passed the ball well enough and I don't think we were playing as a unit today.

"I expected more from us in the second half too."

Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"I think over the 90 minutes we were the better side. For 30 minutes we were excellent, scored the two goals, looked a threat every time we went forward and put in a really good performance.

"We probably switched off for 15 minutes but saying that we were the victims of a terrible decision.

"The ref has got them back in the game. Robbie's (Threlfall) hands were down by his side next to his waist and as long as it's in that position the rules say its not a penalty, and he's given a pen and that's given them a massive lift."
