Tom Adeyemi scored a hotly-disputed stoppage-time winner against Rotherham to settle a frenetic Yorkshire derby 2-1 in favour of Bradford.

The match had moved into the first of three minutes added on when substitute Adeyemi broke through the middle of the Rotherham defence and unleashed a superb 25-yard shot which hit the underside of the crossbar before rebounding back into play.

However, the referee's assistant ruled that the ball had crossed the line - a decision that led to strong protests from Rotherham players and manager Ronnie Moore.

Bradford had gone in front after 16 minutes when Scott Dobie flicked the ball into the path of Lewis Hunt and the right-back raced goalwards before scoring with an angled shot.

Rotherham equalised after 37 minutes when the Bradford defence failed to clear Ryan Taylor's cross from the right and the unmarked Marcus Marshall stooped to head the ball over the head of stranded keeper Lenny Pidgeley.

Both sides hit the crossbar in a thrilling second half and there was some narrow escapes at both ends of the field before Adeyemi`s dramatic winner.
