Bradford City 1-3 Yeovil Town

Aaron Martin's first-half brace helped Yeovil Town to their second win of the season with victory at Bradford City.

Defender Martin headed Yeovil into an early lead from a Sam Foley corner.

He netted his second with a far-post header from a Foley free-kick before City pulled a goal back from another set-piece when an unmarked Rory McArdle headed in Alan Sheehan's corner.

Yeovil remained on top after the break, AJ Leitch-Smith finding the top corner to put the result beyond doubt.

Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

Johnson on Yeovil's win at Bradford

"You have normally got to have a good performance and then you get the result. That was the most solid we have looked and certainly the most competitive we have been for a little while.

"Now it doesn't looks so bad. In the Portsmouth game we were disappointed but in league games it's now two wins and two draws. We have come here and, I think, demoralised a very good team.

"We have done everything we needed to do, every department did their bit. I asked them for their man of the match performance and I think there were a few man of the matches out there. I couldn't have picked one that wouldn't have been."
