Both League One sides were looking to boost their chances of getting into the play-offs with a win on Thursday evening, but a share of the spoils was what they had to settle for in the end.
New signing Marc Bridge-Wilkinson gave The Bantams a dream start by handing them the lead against the run of play 10 minutes in with a deflected shot on the turn.
However, Dave Penney's side earned themselves a point when Mark Bower (pictured) inadvertently knocked Jermaine McSporran's shot into his own net to make it 1-1 12 minutes later.
Both sides failed to find a winner in the second half, but Donny will be concerned for the fitness of McSporran after he was taken off with a serious leg injury just after the hour mark.
