All three West Yorkshire sides squandered chances to pick up three points, on a disappointing day for the region’s clubs.
Bradford City seemed to be cruising to victory against Fleetwood Town at Valley Parade, after goals from Jon Stead and Christopher Routis. Routis’ goal was his first in claret and amber, and it capped off an impressive performance for the Frenchman, playing in midfield. However, goals from Jamie Proctor and Nathan Bond saw the visitors scramble a point, much to the disappointment of Phil Parkinson and his side.
Leeds United missed the chance to climb further up the table as they drew 1-1 at struggling Blackpool. The game was played on a very poor pitch, and Gary Madine opened the scoring for the visitors just before halftime, with a diving header, before substitute Mirco Antenucci levelled the game on 64 minutes, with a smart finish following a defensive error. Leeds are now 13th in the Championship table.
Nahki Wells missed two penalties as Huddersfield Town were beaten 2-0 at home by Fulham. Alex Kacaniklic put the visitors ahead inside the opening two minutes, before Wells had the chance to equalise from the spot following a Shaun Hutchinson handball. Wells missed his penalty, but had the chance to redeem himself just a few minutes later, with another spot kick. However, the second penalty hit the post, spurning the chance to take something from the game. Seko Fofana made it 2-0 in the dying minutes, to leave Huddersfield 18th in the table.
