Brentford manager Uwe Rosler gave credit to Bradford after the League Two side fought back to earn a FA Cup replay.
The Bees' Bradford-born striker Clayton Donaldson put the visitors ahead in the second-round tie three minutes before half-time but James Hanson fired in an equaliser after 70 minutes to set up a replay at Griffin Park on Tuesday, December 18.
Rosler said: "Bradford started the game very well and gave us problems with James Hanson up front and we switched to 4-4-2.
"We went in front and in the second half we controlled the game until (Bradford boss) Phil Parkinson made three great substitutions. They gained momentum from that and got the goal.
"Overall it was a fair result and well done to Bradford. I am not unhappy and we kept our unbeaten run going - now nine games unbeaten."
