BRADFORD CITY’S hopes of gatecrashing the League Two play-offs suffered a serious setback in a 4-1 defeat Exeter City.
They are now 10 points shy of seventh place with nine games remaining.
Bradford got off to an unwelcome start when a Matt Duke goal put the home side ahead on 11 minutes.
Lawson D’Ath made it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time.
Bradford made it a one-goal game through Kyel Reid in the 79th minute. But all hope of a successful comeback - and piossibly with it a chance of making the play-offs - were ended five minutes later when Scot Bennett restored the home side’s two-goal advantage.
John O’Flynn’s 89th-minute strike just added insult to injury.
