Rovers ended a run of two straight defeats with this high-scoring draw with Bradford City.

The Bantams managed to equalise three times over the course of the game, which also saw two players sent off in injury time. Rovers new boy and former Bradford player Guy Branston opened the scoring when he headed home with his first touch of the ball, little more than 70 seconds into his debut. Nahki Wells equalised in what would become the pattern of the game, with Tom Eaves and Michael Smith each putting The Gas in front and Carl McHugh and James Hanson tying things up.

The game ended in controversy when Wayne Brown made a lunging tackle on James Meredith, earning himself a second yellow card and sparking a melee which also saw Nathan Doyle given his marching orders.
