Bradford City came from a goal behind to beat ten-man Coventry City courtesy of two Tony McMahon penalties.
However the three points came at a cost for Stuart McCall as McMahon suffered a thigh injury and faces more than a month on the sidelines.
Coventry went into a 13th minute lead through Burnley loanee Dan Agyei’s debut goal when the striker burst behind Bradford’s lines and beat Nathan Doyle from close range
The game was turned on its head in two second half minutes.
City were awarded a penalty after Jordan Turnbull brought down Billy Clarke and the Coventry man received his marching orders.
McMahon stepped up to slot home an equaliser and the Bantams were soon ahead when Mark Marshall smashed home from 25 yards.
Bradford were given another opportunity from 12 yards with 15 minutes remaining as Josh Cullen went down and McMahon made no mistake for his second.
McMahon hobbled off the field in the final five minutes and was replaced by Filipe Morais.
