Bradford up to third after win against Swindon

Bradford further strengthened their Sky Bet League One play-off challenge, moving into third place after a 1-0 home win over Swindon - their fourth victory in a row and all by the same scoreline.

The only goal of the game came in the 20th minute when Billy Clarke put the Bantams ahead following a long throw from Nathan Clarke.

The Robins defence allowed the ball to bounce and Clarke headed goalwards as goalkeeper Tyrell Bedford, under pressure from Lee Evans, tried to stop the ball from crossing the line. Swindon players played on but the linesman flagged for a goal.

It was a reward for a bright first half-hour by Bradford, but Swindon came more into the game towards half-time and Jermaine Hylton had their best effort a minute before the interval when he forced goalkeeper Ben Williams into a diving save to keep out his 20-yard shot.

The visitors enjoyed more possession in the second half, causing some anxious moments in the Bradford defence, but rarely tested Williams.
