Blackpool 0-1 Bradford City

Kyel Reid scored the only goal of the game as Bradford City moved to within a point of the play-off spots with victory over relegation-threatened Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

Mark Yeates twice threatened for Blackpool before the break, with his second effort tipped onto the bar.

A fine run from Stephen Darby set Reid up to fire low into the bottom corner.

Blackpool's Will Aimson saw red in injury time for a second caution after a clash with James Henson.

Defeat sees Blackpool slip to within one spot of the relegation places, with the Seasiders only above Shrewsbury in 21st on goal difference.
