Notts County 3-0 Bradford City

Jamal Campbell-Ryce's wonder goal helped Notts County beat Bradford and move off the bottom of League One.

Campbell-Ryce took possession mid-way inside the Bradford half and beat three defenders, before firing low from the edge of the box.

Jack Grealish and Campbell-Ryce combined to set up Callum McGregor for his 12th goal of the season.

And Grealish slotted in the Magpies' third goal after great persistence from Enoch Showunmi.

Bradford's winless run now stands at seven matches, while Notts are three points adrift of safety.

Post-match: Notts manager Derry

Notts County manager Shaun Derry told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"It was a great victory for us and I am chuffed for everyone. It was a great response.

"The one thing with Bradford is that you know they are going to go right to the final whistle.

"Even at two and three down they were still pushing and I thought our defending, not just from the back four but throughout, was what it needed to be."
