Murphy laid the ball back to him and he scored with a superbly placed left-foot shot into the far corner from 20 yards.Bradford's best chance fell to Jason Kennedy, who sent a free header against a post from Mark Yeates' cross in the 80th minute before substitute Marc McNulty put the result beyond doubt three minutes later with his fifth goal of the season after taking the ball off defender Andrew Davies
