Second-half goals from acting captain Lee Hendrie and striker James Hanson earned Bradford their second win in a row after they came from behind to beat Cheltenham 3-1 at Valley Parade

The visitors went ahead after seven minutes when Brian Smikle found Josh Low unmarked in the penalty box and he beat keeper Jon McLaughlin with a low shot into the far corner.

However, the home side hit back well and deservedly equalised after 32 minutes when David Syers scored with a diving header from Luke O'Brien's cross.

Hendrie, the former England and Aston Villa midfield player, then put Bradford in front with a neat overhead kick following a smart four-man move after 74 minutes.

Hanson put the result beyond doubt three minutes from the end with a 25-yard shot just inside the near post.
