City’s under-18s made it three games unbeaten after coming from behind twice to earn a 2-2 draw against Rotherham United - in the EFL Youth Alliance North East division. 

Connor Morris’ late free-kick was enough for the young Bantams to secure a point at their Woodhouse Grove training base. 

The visitors took the lead with 10 minutes on the clock when the ball was struck past Bantams goalkeeper Tom Donaghy. 

City netted an equaliser shortly after, though, as Bobby Pointon’s through ball found Cole Roberts who produced a neat finish. 

However, the Millers regained their advantage just after the half hour mark when they capitalised on a loose ball which was finished off, to ensure they were in front heading into the interval. 

With just under five minutes of the second half remaining, the Bantams' pressure told, as they were awarded a free-kick just outside the 18-yard box. 

Morris stepped up to take it and struck the ball past goalkeeper Elliott Ellis to salvage City a point.
