League Two play-off contenders Dagenham & Redbridge scored a late equaliser to crown a dramatic second-half fightback in a 3-3 draw at Bradford.

There was less than a minute of normal time remaining when Bradford's on-loan central defender Luke Oliver headed substitute Jon Nurse's right-wing cross into his own net for Dagenham's leveller.

Bradford took a second-minute lead when leading scorer James Hanson headed Robbie Threlfall's inswinging corner into the net and Hanson doubled the lead after 67 minutes with a header from Threlfall's free-kick.

However, Dagenham hit back with two goals in seven minutes. Nurse put them back in the game after 69 minutes with a close-range shot after taking a pass from Paul Benson and they equalised after 76 minutes when Nurse's far-post header was helped into his own net by defender Steve Williams.

Bradford thought they had won the game in the 82nd minute when on-loan striker Ryan Kendall restored their lead with a neat lob after another free-kick from Threlfall but Dagenham fought back again to earn a share of the points.
