Romain Vincelot’s last-gasp header snatched a point for Bradford in a thrilling draw at Oxford.The Bantams defender struck in the fourth minute of stoppage time with less than 30 seconds to go.Oxford had trailed at half-time to a fine strike from Omari Patrick. The winger, recalled to the side, curled a shot from 22 yards into the top corner.

That goal came against the run of play after Oxford had dominated, with Rob Hall involved in most of their attacks.Patrick also shot against the bar from 12 yards in the second half before Oxford drew level through Wes Thomas on 74 minutes, the striker following up to score after keeper Colin Doyle parried Gino Van Kessel’s shot.With three minutes left, on a break from a Bradford corner, Us midfielder Joe Rothwell broke clear on the left edge of the box and fired a low shot across Doyle and into the far corner.That looked set to be the winning goal but Vincelot had other ideas.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsOxford Utd1Eastwood30Mousinho4Williamson5Nelson21Ferreira da Silva7Hall18RothwellBooked at 49minsSubstituted forRuffelsat 88’minutes8Ledson17HenrySubstituted forvan Kesselat 61’minutes10PayneSubstituted forMowattat 67’minutes9ThomasSubstitutes6Martin13Shearer14Ruffels19Fernández Codina27Mowatt35Carroll39van KesselBradford1Doyle29McMahon22Knight-Percival5KilgallonSubstituted forTaylorat 90’minutes15Field4Reeves6Vincelot17Gilliead7Law34PatrickSubstituted forMcCartanat 79’minutes9WykeSubstituted forPoleonat 78’minutesSubstitutes2Thompson10Taylor11Poleon14McCartan18Hendrie19Jones23RaederReferee:Chris SarginsonAttendance:6,658Match StatsHome TeamOxford UtdAway TeamBradfordPossessionHome51%Away49%ShotsHome10Away6Shots on TargetHome5Away2CornersHome0Away1FoulsHome9Away8Live TextPosted at Match ends, Oxford United 2, Bradford City 2.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Oxford United 2, Bradford City 2.Goal!Posted at 90’+4′ Goal!
