Bradford beat nine-man Plymouth

Bradford revived their League Two play-off hopes with a 2-1 win over nine-man Plymouth.

Ben Richards-Everton’s early header was followed by a Dylan Connolly strike inbetween red cards for Argyle skipper Gary Sawyer and Antoni Sarcevic.

Ryan Hardie pulled one back in the 87th minute for Plymouth, who slipped to fifth after a third game without a win, but the Bantams held on to move within two points of the top seven.

Bradford went in front in the sixth minute when Connor Wood’s inswinging corner was headed home at the far post by Richards-Everton.

Plymouth were reduced to 10 men in the 40th minute when Sawyer was sent off for a rash tackle on winger Connolly.

The Bantams increased their lead in first-half stoppage time when a corner was cleared only as far as Connolly, who scored with a superb shot into the top corner from 20 yards.

Bradford had three great chances to go further ahead early in the second half. Lee Novak and Connolly were both denied by Alex Palmer while an unmarked Clayton Donaldson shot wide from six yards.

Sarcevic received a second booking for a foul on Connolly in the 84th minute, but Plymouth pulled a goal back three minutes later when substitute Hardie scored from close range.
