Billy Sharp was the Sheffield United hero as the Blades came from 2-0 down to get a point against Bradford.
James Meredith had the Bantams in front before Devante Cole doubled the home side's advantage.
But an own goal from Meredith hauled United back into the game before Sharp equalised following a stunning pass from Jose Baxter.
Blades boss Nigel Adkins said: “Bradford were the better team in the first half. We knew they’d be direct and, whether you like it or not, you know the presence of their centre-forward (James Hanson) is a huge threat. I thought we started brightly and then come through the storm.”
