Bradford 3-1 Shrewsbury

Bradford beat Shrewsbury to record their third League Two victory in a row and ease their relegation worries.

James Hanson headed home from an Andrew Davies cross to put the Bantams ahead before Nahki Wells made it 2-0 with a low shot from the edge of the area.

Craig Fagan volleyed a third but Bradford then had David Syers sent off for a professional foul on Nicky Wroe.

With the man advantage, Shrewsbury pulled a goal back through Marvin Morgan's volley but it was not enough.
