Bradford 0-3 Torquay

In-form Torquay consolidated their League Two play-off place with a convincing win at Bradford.

Kevin Nicholson connected with Eunan O'Kane's free-kick on the edge of the box to put the visitors in front just after the half-hour mark.

Gavin Tomlin tapped in from close range after Jake Robinson's cross to double Torquay's lead shortly after the break.

Substitute Billy Kee added the gloss late on, connecting with O'Kane's cross from the edge of the six-yard box.


Bradford City interim manager Peter Jackson told BBC Radio Leeds:"Without a doubt they were the better side so I'm disappointed with it and it's an all round bad result for us today.

"This is why we're in mid-table because we're inconsistent and throughout the season we have been and this is why the club is where it is.

"I knew it was going to be difficult today but I was full confidence but now I'm bitterly disappointed."

Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon: "The players have done extremely well - three goals and a clean sheet at a big, big football club is testament to the players.

"It's been a fabulous day for us, we've played very very well on what was a difficult pitch.

"I can't speak highly enough of my team, we're sitting fifth now in League Two and it's an unbelievable season for us."
