Caretaker manager Richie Wellens extended his unbeaten run to five matches as Oldham gained a point in a hard-fought and at times bad-tempered League One match against third-placed Bradford at Valley Parade.Staffordshire referee Chris Sarginson booked three players after some fiery exchanges involving players from both sides, and added six minutes of stoppage time.Bradford went in front in the third minute with a superb 25-yard right-footed shot from winger Paul Taylor following a free-kick. Nicky Law played the ball into Taylor’s path and the summer signing from Peterborough gave goalkeeper Johny Placide no chance.

However, Oldham, who had won their previous four matches under Wellens, troubled Bradford with some swift counter-attacks and, after Eoin Doyle, on loan from Preston, forced home goalkeeper Colin Doyle to make two saves in the space of two minutes, he deservedly equalised for the visitors in the 23rd minute.A through pass from right-back Cameron Dummigan split the Bradford defence and Doyle fired past the advancing keeper.Play swung from end to end in an evenly-fought second half, but there were few clear-cut chances.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsBradford1Doyle18Hendrie2ThompsonBooked at 79mins22Knight-Percival3Chicksen7Law6VincelotBooked at 73minsSubstituted forDiengat 79’minutes4Reeves34PatrickSubstituted forPoleonat 63’minutes9WykeBooked at 84mins10TaylorSubstituted forGillieadat 63’minutesSubstitutes5Kilgallon8Dieng11Poleon14McCartan16Hanson17Gilliead23RaederOldham19Placide2Dummigan26Clarke40BryanBooked at 85mins23HuntBooked at 83mins24Fane6GardnerSubstituted forOmraniat 78’minutesBooked at 82mins29ByrneSubstituted forFlynnat 90+1’minutes27NepomucenoSubstituted forMenigat 63’minutes13Doyle9DaviesSubstitutes1Ruddy4Wilson5Gerrard7Flynn8Banks16Menig25OmraniReferee:Chris SarginsonAttendance:19,840Match StatsHome TeamBradfordAway TeamOldhamPossessionHome55%Away45%ShotsHome19Away12Shots on TargetHome2Away7CornersHome10Away3FoulsHome6Away13Live TextPosted at Match ends, Bradford City 1, Oldham Athletic 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+7′ Second Half ends, Bradford City 1, Oldham Athletic 1.Posted at 90’+6′ Hand ball by Ryan Flynn (Oldham Athletic).Posted at 90’+5′ Corner, Oldham Athletic.
