Bradford 2-1 Notts County

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Bradford striker Peter Thorne took up from where he left off last season with two goals to clinch the Bantams' win over Notts County.

Thorne, last term's leading scorer for the Bantams, headed his side ahead from new signing Paul Arnison's cross.

The striker who scored a hat-trick in last season's corresponding fixture, doubled the Bantams' advantage with a smart overhead kick from six yards.

Richard Butcher pulled a goal back for the Magpies to set up a tense finish.
