Bradford   3 - 2   Stockport

Bradford v Stockport

Bradford 3-2 Stockport

Gareth Evans' injury time strike gave Bradford's departing boss Peter Taylor a dream send off against Stockport.

Steve Williams headed home Michael Flynn's free-kick to give the Bantams the lead before Paul Turnbull fired in an equaliser.

James Hanson had a penalty saved after Adam Griffin saw red for handball but Ryan Doble put Stockport ahead.

Doble was sent off for violent conduct and Williams headed home a second before Evans snatched the win.


Bradford City boss Peter Taylor tells BBC Radio Leeds:
"I'm just so pleased that the boys were rewarded for their non-stop effort. I couldn't really ask anymore from the players for the work rate, the way they kept going. If we could have been doing that all season we'd be having a lot happier times.

"I'm really sad to be leaving. First thing they've got to do is get enough points to make sure the club stays in the division and I've got no doubt about it."

Stockport County caretaker manager Peter Ward told BBC Radio Manchester:

"It's tough after battling for 95 minutes, it's shattering.

"I've got nothing but praise for the lads and the performance they put in today. They gave everything for the shirt and I'm really proud of them.

"We've got 13 games left and we're going to have to show championship-winning form."
