Morecambe 2-1 Bradford

Bradford let slip a 1-0 lead as their promotion hopes suffered a blow.

Matthew Clarke's header put Bradford ahead and Peter Thorne looked to have made it 2-0 but the referee ruled his effort had not crossed the line.

Morecambe's Stewart Drummond equalised in the 55th minute with a header from Danny Adams's left-wing cross.

Rene Howe's stunning 30-yard strike gave the hosts the lead and late on Steve Jones had a chance to equalise but headed wide from close range.
