Bradford claimed an early scalp by beating Premier League newcomers Burnley 2-1 in their opening pre-season friendly.

Veteran full-back Graham Alexander opened the scoring in the 13th minute for Burnley, who handed debuts to Steven Fletcher and Tyrone Mears.

But Bradford hit back through James O'Brien's 24th minute goal before Michael Boulding sealed the win 12 minutes later.
