Second placed Notts County extended their unbeaten run to nine matches after a 0-0 draw with Bradford on a wet night at Valley Parade.

Both sides had chances on a slippery surface, but neither team could produce the killer blow to win the match.

Gareth Evans had Bradford's best first-half effort when he took a pass from leading scorer James Hanson only to see his fierce right foot shot saved at the near post by Kasper Schmeichel .

Bradford stepped up their pressure after half time and Schmeichel had to be at his best to keep out fine efforts from Michael Flynn, Evans and Hanson before Ben Davies missed a great chance for County when he fired over the crossbar from 15 yards.

Bradford keeper Matt Glennon then did well to turn Luke Rodgers' shot away for a corner, but Hanson had the chance to win the match for the home side in the last minute, but he scooped the ball over the crossbar after good work from Evans.
