Macclesfield 0-2 Bradford

Veteran marksman Peter Thorne scored twice to maintain Bradford's excellent start to the season.

Thorne intelligently directed a looping header over advancing goalkeeper John Brain to put the Bantams ahead.

He was again on hand in the 14th minute to pounce on a bad clearance from Sean Hessey and shoot home from 15 yards.

Bradford then hit the woodwork twice in the second half; first through Michael Boulding's low shot and then through Omar Daley at the death.
