Bradford substitute Alan Connell's late chip snatched a point against Accrington in League Two.

Zavon Hines twice went close for the visitors in the first half, but he was first denied by keeper Ian Dunbavin and then by an upright.

The hosts went ahead against the run of play when Padraig Amond tapped home Will Hatfield's cross.

But Connell looped his first City goal over Dunbavin six minutes after coming on to level the contest.
