League Two leaders Stockport made it back-to-back away draws over Christmas with another point at Bradford.

Dave Challinor’s side have now lost just once in 20 games after a goalless stalemate at Valley Parade in front of a 19,657 crowd, the match going ahead after passing an early-evening pitch inspection.

Nick Powell saw two shots charged down from Stockport’s first corner before Ibou Touray shot over the bar for the visitors.

Bradford forward Clarke Oduor, another scoring substitute from Boxing Day like Powell, replied for the hosts with a 20-yard drive that flew past the post.

Alex Gilliead just cleared the Stockport bar from the edge of the penalty area but chances were at a premium in the testing conditions.

Bradford made a positive start to the second half and Tyler Smith’s near-post flick was saved by Ben Hinchliffe.

Stockport substitute Ryan Croasdale swung and missed at a chance but the home side were growing in momentum as Andy Cook twice shot over the bar.

Hinchliffe came to Stockport’s rescue with a superb save to keep out Cook’s half-volley from a knockdown by substitute Vadaine Oliver.
