Bradford 1-0 Macclesfield

Dean Furman scored the goal that Bradford's domination deserved to lift the Bantams back into the play-offs.

The midfielder, on loan from Rangers, took a return pass from Michael Boulding and scored with a low left-foot shot from 10 yards.

The goal came on the hour mark and up until then City had been frustrated by Macclesfield's defensive approach.

Forced into action, Town's Lee Bell twice tested City keeper Rhys Evans, but City ran out comfortable winners.
