Huge win for Bantams: Match Review

Bradford eased their fears of dropping out of the Football League with a competent 1-0 win at Macclesfield.

The Cheshire side's fourth successive defeat leaves them looking over their shoulders as they fall down League Two.

The Bantams might have scored in the 18th minute when striker James Hanson saw a close-range drive flick off keeper Jose Veiga and loop inches over the crossbar. From the resulting corner, Luke Oliver sent a header off the top of the woodwork.

But Bradford did not have long to wait with former Macc player Gareth Evans picking out Hanson in the 21st minute for the striker to convert with a firm header.

David Syers raced through Macc's defence in the 53rd minute but drilled his shot wide of the upright before Colin Daniel then sent a shot well wide from the edge of the box for the home side.

Macc thought they had equalised in the 77th minute when Emile Sinclair neatly controlled a long ball from Matty Hamshaw before finding the far corner only to be narrowly called for offside.

Hamshaw then took a pot-shot from the edge of the box that was easily saved by Jon McLaughlin in the dying moments.
