Football - McDonald strike gets Gills a point

Gillingham hit back to earn a 1-1 draw at Bradford in a mid-table battle that leaves both clubs who won promotion from League Two last season level on the same number of points.

PA Sport Report

Aaron Mclean gave the hosts a 10th-minute lead with his first goal for the club. Mclean, who had gone 10 matches without scoring since joining the Bantams from Hull in January, scored with a half volley from just inside the six -yard area after the Gills failed to deal with left-back Adam Drury's cross.

The goal was a reward for Bradford's bright start and they dominated the first half without being able to add a second goal.

Gillingham were a more lively team after the break and, after making a double substitution at the interval, equalised after 57 minutes.

Substitute Adebayo Akinfenwa played a pass behind the Bradford defence and Cody McDonald beat the on-rushing Jon McLaughlin to the ball before turning it past the goalkeeper.
