Macclesfield 0-1 Bradford

Highlights - Macclesfield 0-1 Bradford

Bradford eased their relegation fears as they earned an important victory over Macclesfield.

The Bantams started brightly as James Hanson's shot looped inches over the crossbar and Luke Oliver saw his header bounce off the woodwork.

They made the breakthrough when former Macc player Gareth Evans crossed to Hanson who nodded in.

The hosts thought they had equalised in the second half but Emile Sinclair's effort was narrowly ruled offside.

The defeat leaves Macclesfield without a win in four games and they now sit in eight points off the drop zone in 18th place, level on points with Morecambe, Hereford and Lincoln City.

POST-MATCH REACTION

Bradford City interim manager Peter Jackson tells BBC Radio Leeds:

"We were all disappointed after the game on Saturday, but the players bounced back. We were all positive and we were confident coming into the game we'd get a result and it proved to be right.

"Really worked hard, created lots of chances and could have won by a lot more. The work rate, the effort, the energy was all there to see and full credit to the players.

"I'll be able to celebrate my 50th birthday tomorrow in style."
