Bradford   2 - 1   Rotherham

Highlights - Bradford 2-1 Rotherham

Bradford 2-1 Rotherham

Bradford's Tom Adeyemi scored a controversial last-minute winner to settle the clash with Rotherham.

The Bantams had gone in front when Lewis Hunt latched on to Scott Dobie's flick-on and fired into the corner.

Marcus Marshall looped a header over stranded keeper Lenny Pidgely for 1-1 after some poor defending.

Adeyemi fired a superb 25-yard effort that seemed to hit the crossbar and bounce back into play, only for the assistant referee to award a goal.


Bradford interim manager Peter Jackson told BBC Radio Leeds:
"It was a massive night for me and the players - the reaction to the winning goal showed it meant to everyone here tonight.

"I thought it was a terrific game, the players showed lots of character against a team that have been in the top four all season.

"The linesman gave it (the winning goal), Ronnie Moore will say it wasn't a goal, I'll say it was so I'm sticking by that."

Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"It was cruel. You could tell by the reaction of the players, not only ours but theirs that they thought he'd given offside. I couldn't believe it.

"How can he possibly see that the ball's gone over the line from there? It's impossible."

"We should have had a stone wall penalty in the first half. I don't know how that's not been given.

"We got back into the game and I could only see us winning it, that's the frustrating thing."
