Cheltenham 3-1 Bradford

Cheltenham sealed their place in the League Two play-offs after coming from behind to beat Bradford.

Nahki Wells put the visitors ahead with a fine low strike, before home keeper Scott Brown kept the score down with a string of fine saves.

Jimmy Spencer equalised from Kaid Mohamed cross, and then added a well-taken second after some good work by Luke Summerfield.

Ben Burgess sealed the win with a deft finish following Sido Jombati's pass.


Cheltenham Town Manager Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"The first part of what we're setting out to do has been achieved, we can now really start preparing for the play offs."

"First half, we made poor decisions as we defended poorly, we didn't keep the ball, we could only get better. Mo (Kaid Mohammad) came on and made a hell of a difference."

"I'm immensely proud of the boys and the achievement, it sums up where we are as a club, we've got some tremendous players and characters, we all work hard together and I'm really delighted."

"I'll definitely be making changes next Saturday. Hopefully we'll take a good crowd down with us. One or two deserve a chance, some need the chance to express themselves and get it out of their systems, whilst one or two other players need a little breather."

Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"First half we were fantastic, we had chance after chance.

"We stopped doing the things that brought us success, we stopped winning headers at the back, we were not as compact as a team and we got punished for it.

"It's disappointing for us because we've played really well of late."
