Our guide to Vital Bradford’s coverage of Bradford City’s visit to Accrington Stanley

Barry Conlon was the hero for the Bantams as he came off the bench to inspire the most unlikely of comebacks. The Bantams went behind against the run of play but from that moment on looked second best to a home team without a home win since August.

Michael Boulding spurned a fantastic chance on the stroke of half time to draw the sides level and the visitors were made to pay five minutes into the second when Accrington Stanley doubled their advantage.

On the hour an ineffective Kyle Nix was withdrawn and last week`s super sub Barry Conlon was introduced. And he did it again. Ten minutes from time Luke O`Brien`s ball into the box was knocked down by Barry Conlon and met by Michael Boulding who atoned for his earlier miss and put City back in with a chance.

Three minutes from time Barry Conlon scored his second goal in as many games to draw the visitors level and, whilst the commentators were still discussing the equaliser Joe Colbeck broke through and delivered a wonderful ball for Peter Thorne to sweep home the ball and give the visitors the most unlikely of three points.
