Leyton Orient 1-1 Swindon: Jacob Wakeling earns a point for Robins against the League Two leaders

Sky Bet League Two top scorer Andy Cook scored twice to rescue promotion-chasing Bradford a point in a 2–2 draw with Hartlepool at Valley Parade.

The visitors looked poised to give their chances of survival a big boost after leading twice.

Callum Cooke returned to haunt his former club with the opening goal before Dan Kemp, who had passed Cook for the division’s player of the month for February, restored the lead.

But Cook hit back each time to bring his season tally to 25, 22 of them in the league.

Cook came close twice in the first half and Dara Costelloe should have scored too before Bradford fell behind, Cooke finishing from inside the penalty area.

Bradford was booed at half-time but responded with an equalizer four minutes after the break when Cook converted a Richie Smallwood free-kick.

Costelloe wasted two good chances and Hartlepool took advantage through Kemp’s great solo strike.

But Cook salvaged a point for Bradford when he volleyed in Scott Banks’ cross.
