Bradford 3-1 AFC Wimbledon

Bradford City booked their place in round three of the FA Cup for the first time in seven years with victory over AFC Wimbledon.

The Bantams went in front when James Hanson knocked down Craig Fagan's cross for Ross Hannah to flick home.

The hosts doubled their lead when Chris Bush put through his own net from Ricky Ravenhill's centre.

Jack Midson's low drive reduced arrears before Fagan wrapped up the win with a penalty after Nahki Wells was fouled.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson told BBC Radio Leeds:

Parkinson eyes big tie for Bradford

"I'm very pleased to reach the third round so we can relax and enjoy watching the draw tomorrow.

"We conceded a goal in the second half and I'm never happy when we concede but we scored again and that's what I'm pleased with.

"I remember when we played them [AFC Wimbledon] last time at home and we spoke about us doing well on the ball but not good enough without it but today we got both sides right."

Brown laments 'disastrous' cup exit

AFC Wimbledon manager Terry Brown told BBC London 94.9:

"It was a disastrous game for us. I was very disappointed with our performance today.

"Bradford deserve to go through and I wish them well in the next round.

"We have to get a whole lot better if we want to put points on the board."
