Bradford   3 - 1   Cheltenham

Bradford v Cheltenham

Bradford 3-1 Cheltenham

A Lee Hendrie-inspired Bradford fought back from a goal down to beat battling Cheltenham Town.

The visitors went ahead early on when Josh Low found himself unmarked in the area to tuck away into the far corner.

David Syers' diving header levelled the game up then, after a fantastic four-man move, Hendrie's overhead kick gave the Bantams the lead.

James Hanson added the gloss with three minutes remaining when he lashed into the back of the net from 25 yards.


Bradford City manager Peter Taylor told BBC Radio Leeds:
"I'm delighted with the outcome because it was a test.

"It was a disappointing goal for us and we've got to learn from that.

"But the crowd's reaction when they scored was fantastic. They lifted the players and, after that, the players responded fantastically with lots of togetherness, lots of desire and some great quality."

Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"It was tough for the boys out there but I thought they coped with it well. They've put in every effort but we just conceded goals at the wrong times.

"My defenders have been superb for the last four or five games but the second goal was poor on our part and even the third was too, you can't gift teams goals.

"We've just go to come to places like this and show some more resilience."
