Carl Macauley’s Motors side halted a run of two successive defeats after battling their way to a well earned point on Monday night.
Motors headed to the Horsfall Stadium to face a Bradford Park Avenue side who, like Motors, are vying for mid-table finish in the Skrill North.
In a game full of endeavour and commitment but short on quality in the final third, Motors boss Macauley’s charges were unable to make the crucial breakthrough despite a spirited effort.
After coming under pressure from their Yorkshire hosts in the first period, striker Steven Tames went closest for the visitors.
A much improved Motors emerged in the second in bright fashion with substitute Adam Hughes, who came on for the injured Shaun Tuck after just 15 minutes, seeing his low drive from 20 yards saved by Bradford 'keeper John Lamb.
Tames was thwarted on a couple of occasions and Lloyd Ellams saw an effort turned away for a corner as Motors pressed to find the all important goal.
It wasn’t to be and Zac Jones in the Vauxhall goal was called into action in the final minutes to keep out a Bradford header to ensure that Motors returned to Ellesmere Port with a share of the spoils.
