Oldham manager Lee Johnson praised his side's battling qualities after watching them hit back to claim a 1-1 home draw against Bradford.

Nahki Wells fired the visitors ahead with his 14th goal of the season but Jonson Clarke-Harris quickly blasted a superb equaliser which stretched Oldham's unbeaten run to seven games in all competitions.

Johnson said: "It was a good game all round, what you'd call a real man's game, and it's pleasing that our group of players came through that.

"I was disappointed with the goal we conceded, especially as I thought there was a handball in the build-up, but we showed good character to come back.

"It was always going to be a difficult game, but the longer it went on the more we dominated with our own style of football.

"We played some good stuff. We concentrated at the back and our two in midfield (James Wesolowski and Korey Smith) were excellent all game.

"With the work we are doing and with the effort everyone is putting in, we are only going to get better.

"We didn't start the season great but we look solid at the moment and earlier in the season we might have lost that game.

"I'm chuffed for the lads but we must continue this run for as long as we can."
