Bradford 2-0 Chesterfield- Match Report

Bradford defeat 10-man Chesterfield

Bradford wound up the regular Sky Bet League One season with a richly deserved 2-0 win over 10-man Chesterfield in front of a bumper 20,807 crowd.

The Bantams, who recorded a seventh successive home win, will meet fourth-placed Millwall in the play-offs after they won at Gillingham.

Wales Under-21 international Lee Evans put the Bantams in front after seven minutes with a superb 25-yard left foot volley after Tony McMahon's shot had been deflected into his path.

Evans, on loan from Wolves, featured in all Bradford's best moves and with better luck could have added more to his tally.

Chesterfield were reduced to 10 men after 67 minutes when Sam Hird was sent off after bringing down Jamie Proctor as the Bradford striker bore down on goal.

The Bantams, who dominated the second half but struggled to turn superiority into goals, finally scored a second to put the result beyond doubt in the 87th minute.

The visitors' defence failed to clear Evans' cross and Proctor played the ball into the path of Billy Clarke to score from inside the six yard area.

Chesterfield provided little threat in attack and Ben Williams in the Bradford goal did not have a serious save to make.
