Luton Town 4-0 Bradford City

Elliot Lee scored twice as Luton Town easily swept aside bottom team Bradford City at Kenilworth Road in League One.

The Hatters went close in the 11th minute, Lee shooting over from the edge of the box, while Glen Rea fired straight at Richard O'Donnell.

Town led when Harry Cornick's shot was spilled by O'Donnell and James Justin fired home the rebound.

Lee might have made it 2-0, denied by O'Donnell, but he did have a second on 33 minutes, taking Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu's pass and finding the bottom corner.

A third arrived after 38 minutes when Cornick's outrageous flick was perfectly into the path of Lee to get his 10th of the season.

Bradford's Kai Brunker headed over, as the visitors improved in the second half, David Ball's header ruled out for offside and Kelvin Mellor's blast flipped over by James Shea.

Lee was close to a treble, his flick cleared, but late on Luton had a fourth when Cornick raced away to bundle the ball over the line, and they almost made it five, substitute Aaron Jarvis's drive parried by O'Donnell.
