Just a week after defeating Arsenal in the Capital One Cup, Bradford lost their FA Cup second-round replay against Brentford in extra-time.

The npower League Two side, reinstated to the competition on appeal after initially being thrown out for fielding an ineligible player, held their League One opponents to a 1-1 draw at the end of normal time before they eventually went down 4-2.

Kyel Reid's opener was followed by a Marcello Trotta penalty on the cusp of half-time before a scoring splurge in the added half-hour. Alan Connell put Bradford ahead from the spot four minutes after the resumption only for Trotta, Clayton Donaldson and Harry Forrester to all score with within four minutes to send the Bees through to a meeting with Southend.
