Bradford City 2-1 Doncaster Rovers

Jamie Proctor scored twice as Bradford continued their play-off push with a win over struggling Doncaster Rovers.

Proctor, who joined from Fleetwood in January, headed in Billy Clarke's cross from six yards out to open the scoring.

It was 2-0 when left-back James Meredith got on the overlap and delivered for Proctor to glance in his second header from the near post.

Doncaster scored a consolation through Nathan Tyson's close-range finish but are now are 11 games without a win.
