Accrington Stanley 1-0 Bradford

Accrington Stanley   1 - 0   Bradford

On-loan striker Wes Fletcher proved to be Accrington's catalyst as they triumphed over Bradford.

Fletcher came close to opening the scoring, grazing the bar with a cross.

The Burnley loanee got the game's only goal when he pounced on Andy Proctor's header, beat defender Guy Branston and slotted home.

City struggled to test Accrington's goal, with Michael Flynn and Jack Crompton putting in dangerous crosses to no avail.
