Leyton Orient 0-1 Bradford City
Leyton Orient's hopes of automatic promotion from League One took another blow as Aaron McLean's goal gave mid-table Bradford City victory.
The Bantams scored the only goal of the game against the run of play as McLean volleyed in Gary Jones' corner.
The O's are without a win in four games and are four points behind Brentford in second who have two games in hand.
A half-time altercation saw Bradford boss Phil Parkinson and O's assistant Kevin Nugent sent to the stands.
The home side felt they were denied a penalty in stoppage time when Dean Cox's shot hit an arm but referee David Phillips insisted he had already blown for half-time.
The altercation continued down the tunnel which resulted in both men seeing red.
But this changed nothing on the pitch as, despite a late scare from Shaun Batt whose bending effort went just wide of the post, City were able to absorb the Orient pressure.
