Fleetwood Town 0-2 Bradford City

Bradford moved up to fifth in League One as goals from James Hanson and Filipe Morais stretched their unbeaten run to eight games.

Hanson headed home a Mark Yeates cross to give the Bantams a first-half lead with his sixth goal of the season.

Morais doubled the advantage late on with an emphatic finish from a pinpoint Jon Stead centre.

Fleetwood drop to 14th after Danny Andrew, Stephen Dobbie and Josh Morris failed to convert chances.
