Second-half goals from Billy McKay and Ben Tozer earned Northampton their second successive home win as they comfortably beat a poor Bradford side 2-0.

Northampton created most of the chances in the first half, the influential Kevin Thornton twice going close with free-kicks while McKay missed a good chance after being set up by the midfielder.

Bradford offered little in the opening period and their best chance fell to Louis Moult who saw his snap-shot saved by Chris Dunn.

Steve Williams also went close when he headed wide from a free-kick.

McKay finally broke the deadlock in the 61st minute.

Tozer's free-kick into the box was headed down by Michael Jacobs and McKay pounced to grab his fourth goal of the campaign.

Tozer capped a solid performance when he ventured forward to double Northampton's lead in the 82nd minute, McKay heading the ball back for the on-loan Newcastle defender to hook into the roof of the net.
