Bradford City 2-1 Bury

Rory McArdle
Rory McArdle had not scored a goal for Bradford since December last year

Bradford ended Bury's 10-match unbeaten run in League One with a deserved victory at Valley Parade as the Shakers lost away from home for the first time since January - a run of 17 games.

Rory McArdle powerfully headed Bradford in front in first-half stoppage time.

An own goal followed as Bury's Reece Brown helped Reece Burke's header past his keeper from a Bradford corner.

Danny Rose scored a consolation for the Shakers in stoppage time after Tom Pope had been denied by Ben Williams' save.

Bradford move up to 11th in League One, five points behind Bury who occupy sixth place.
