Southend 2-2 Bradford

Southend produced a stunning late fightback as they came from two goals down to earn a draw with Bradford.

The Bantams, buoyed by their Capital One Cup victory over Arsenal in mid-week, went ahead when Nahki Wells tapped home from close range.

Luke Prosser then sliced the ball into his own net to make it 2-0 to the visitors, before Ryan Cresswell headed home to reduce the arrears.

And Gavin Tomlin's strike in the dying moments secured the Shrimpers a point.


Southend United manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Essex:

"It looked as if we were down and out, but to be fair to the players they responded. We stuck Barry Corr on and he started to win everything up the middle of the pitch.

"They gave everything they have, at 1-0 (down) we were the offensive team, we were the team that looked most likely to score.

"Then we go 2-0 down. Now most teams would have caved in from there, but this team is made of stronger stuff.

"We can't complain about a 2-2 draw, it feels like a win."
