Eoin Doyle put Bradford ahead from the penalty spot on the hour, with Jack Payne adding another just five minutes later.

Midfielder Jay Spearing started the comeback when he scored his first goal for Blackpool from the penalty spot, before the midfielder swiftly netted again to equalise after a second spot-kick had been saved.

Blackpool completed the turnaround in stoppage time when defender Curtis Tilt, who had been pushed into attack, smashed the ball home.

It also finished 1-1 between Sunderland and Fleetwood at the Stadium of Light.

Paddy Madden headed Fleetwood into an early lead after nine minutes but striker Josh Maja had Sunderland level seven minutes before half-time.

Madden saw his penalty saved by Jon McLaughlin five minutes into the second half as both sides had to settle for a point.
