Bradford 0-2 Port Vale

Bradford 0-2 Port Vale

Bradford   0 - 2   Port Vale

Marc and Justin Richards both scored to help Port Vale to a comfortable away win at Bradford.

A Gary Roberts corner was met by an unmarked Marc Richards, who headed the visitors in front.

Jake Speight could have equalised for the home side but instead handled the ball in front of an open goal.

Vale were gifted a second when Bradford keeper Jon McLaughlin failed to control a Tommy Docherty back-pass and Justin Richards tapped into an empty net.


Bradford manager Peter Taylor told BBC Radio Leeds:
"That was a much better performance and I still can't believe that we haven't scored a goal.

"I think that we made some mistakes, people got a little bit tired and made some errors, but there were lots of things I was very pleased with.

"It's disappointing that we let a goal in from a corner, but the players got on with it and as a group they carried on working extremely hard, there was some good performances out there."
