Bradford City 1-2 Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster came from behind to beat Bradford thanks to second-half goals from Reece Wabara and Curtis Main.

The hosts took the lead when Billy Knott and Mark Yeates combined to set up Jon Stead to score from 15 yards.

Doncaster goalkeeper Sam Johnstone kept out shots from Knott and Alan Sheehan before Doncaster turned the tables.

Liam Wakefield's cross was bundled in by Wabara, before Main ran onto a through-ball and found the top corner, leaving Bradford winless in five.

Doncaster Rovers boss Paul Dickov told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"Absolutely delighted with the second half performance especially.

"We showed a lot of character, a lot of guts. It was a feisty, feisty game, which I quite enjoyed actually.

"To come back from a goal behind and go on to get the winner shows there's a lot of character in there.

"We changed the shape a little bit at half-time and I think the boys were fantastic after that."
