Relief for Bantams boss: Match Review

Next Story

Leon Osborne and Tom Adeyemi were the heroes as Bradford ended their away-day win duck by beating Barnet 2-0 to reduce the pressure on Peter Taylor.

The Bantams boss this week had to defend his position following his side's recent dismal run but Osborne and Adeyemi's second-half strikes will have left him breathing easier.

The Bees, themselves woefully out of form with just one win in six, dominated the first half.

Ricky Holmes went close on 23 minutes after nipping in ahead of Bradford centre-half Steve Williams before Mauro Vilhete drew a smart save from Bantams keeper Jon McLaughlin eight minutes later.

But it was a different Bradford which emerged after the break and they took the lead after 65 minutes when Osborne celebrated his first start of the season by tucking away Tommy Doherty's pass.

And the result was settled just four minutes later when 18-year-old Norwich loanee Adeyemi got his name on the scoresheet, firing home from the edge of the area after being freed by Omar Daley.
