Bradford 4-2 Barnet

Bradford 4-2 Barnet

James Hanson scored twice as managerless Bradford beat Barnet to secure their first win of the season.

Izale McLeod gave Barnet the lead with a simple tap-in but Hanson's header from Chris Mitchell's cross levelled things moments later.

Skipper Guy Branston nodded Bradford ahead from Mitchell's free-kick before Hanson fired in from close range.

Nahki Wells' low shot from the edge of the area made it four before McLeod grabbed a late consolation.

It was a superb end to a turbulent week for the Bantams after Peter Jackson quit as boss on Thursday.

The win also ended a run of three successive defeats in the league for the home side.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bradford City caretaker manager Colin Cooper told BBC Radio Leeds:

"We're pleased, it's nice to win for the fans today. Hopefully they have gone away happy today. I'm not particularly happy with conceding two goals but that could just be me being picky.

In the first half we let Barnet come at us a little bit too easily, but in the second half we managed to look a bit more solid and with three fantastic deliveries from Chris Mitchell and a lovely goal from Naki Wells then we got the three points today."
