Bradford City's Steven Davies has now scored four goals in his last six League One appearances

Bradford City ended Millwall's run of six league games unbeaten to move into the League One play-off places.

In an game of few chances Bradford's Tony McMahon curled a free-kick wide before Millwall striker Aiden O'Brien sliced over Steve Morison's cross.

Lions' keeper Jordan Archer produced a good save to keep out Jamie Proctor, with the rebound ruled out for offside.

With 11 minutes remaining substitute Steven Davies headed in Nathan Clarke's cross to earn the valuable points.

The victory moved Bradford into sixth place, above Barnsley, who were held to a 0-0 draw with Scunthorpe on Friday.

Millwall's first defeat since 16 February leaves them a point above the Bantams in fifth.
