Bradford 1-0 Burton

James Hanson scored the only goal as Bradford made sure of their place in the League Two play-offs while all but ending 10-man Burton's hopes of automatic promotion.

Hanson looped the ball into the net after Marcus Holness failed to clear.

Burton were reduced to 10 men when skipper Lee Bell was sent off for a foul on Bradford's Zavon Hines.

The hosts ought to have scored a second goal when Hines shot wide of the far post from the edge of the six yard box.

Prior to the game a one-minute silence was held in memory of the 28th anniversary of the Bradford stadium fire in 1985.


Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett told BBC Radio Derby:

Rowett rues 'crazy three minutes'

"We had an absolutely crazy three minutes and two moments of madness that cost us the game.

"Lee's sending off is very disappointing. He's cost the lads the chance to win the game and he's let his team-mates down.

"I've told him that in the locker room and I'm sure that on reflection he'll realise he's also let himself down, because he's not going to be able to play any part in the play-offs.

"So it was disappointing all round, but actually I have to say it was probably the best we've played away from home in quite a while."
