Bristol Rovers 2 Bradford City 1: Ten-man Bantams suffer defeat

Have your say

Phil Parkinson saw his Bradford City side return empty-handed from Bristol Rovers today in League Two.

Winger Will Atkinson made his Bantams’ debut on loan from Hull City while winger Kyel Reid is back on the bench after a month on the sidelines with a hamstring injury. David Syers returned after a three game ban but defender Luke Oliver (hamstring) was still ruled out.

The Bantams trailed after just six minutes, Lee Brown firing home after good work from Andy Dorman.

Eliot Richards (55) made it 2-0. Rob Kozluk was red carded for City, who cut the deficit when Andrew Davies (72) pounced.
