Yeovil Town 1-0 Bradford City

Bradford's play-off hopes were dented as they suffered their second defeat on the bounce at bottom club Yeovil.

The home side started with a new front pairing of Norwich loanee Jamar Loza and recent signing Gozie Ugwu.

And Ugwu broke the deadlock after 26 minutes when he poked in Kieffer Moore's flick-on for only Yeovil's sixth home league goal of the season.

Moore's misplaced pass gave Bradford a chance to equalise, but James Hanson could only head over.

Yeovil boss Gary Johnson told BBC Radio Bristol:

Gary Johnson: Yeovil Town manager on Bradford win

"It's the first game since September to win, but we've been unlucky in a few games and we've drawn

"But it was a welcome win that's for sure, there were a couple of gambles and they came off

"The boys really worked hard and to beat a team that are right on form who have just beaten Millwall in the cup 4-0, I know Millwall were down to 10 men, but they did.

"They've got the game that puts the ball in the box and probably two of the best headers of a ball in Hanson, and Jon Stead works off him, and I think our two centre-halves did well."
