Bantams out fox Leicester
Bradford's Robbie Blake was both goalscorer and provider
Bradford City 3-1 Leicester City
Bradford City confounded their Premiership doubters with an impressive win against an in-form Leicester side.
Bradford took the lead after just 12 minutes when Blake, the former Darlington striker, took advantage of a clever flick from veteran forward Dean Saunders.
Blake raced past Foxes defender Matt Elliott before blasting the ball away from the despairing dive of goalkeeper Tim Flowers.
Leicester, who move to sixth in the Premiership after this defeat, looked for an immediate reply.
Martin O'Neill's side found their reward just ten minutes
Andy Impey made the Bantams pay after the Yorkshire team failed to clear the ball away from their box after a Steve Guppy cross.
Guppy's ball was momentarily cleared but fell to Northern Ireland international Neil Lennon who fired a shot which 'keeper Gary Walsh magnificently parried.
But Impey was on hand to pounce and steal an equaliser.
That raised the tempo of the game and it was Paul Jewell's men who created the better of the chances.
Lee Mills put a shot agonisingly wide but his moment was to come four minutes before the break.
Gunnar Halle fired a precise cross into the path of Mills, who gratefully headed home for his third goal in three games.
Windass struck the Leicester post with a hopeful shot seconds later, but with 24 minutes left of the match, Redfearn made certain of the points.
Blake made a run down the left flank before whipping a tremendous ball, low into the path of Redfearn.
The free-kick specialist only had to stick a foot out to steer the ball past a helpless Flowers.
