Bradford followed up the scalp of Chelsea by dumping another Premier League side out of the FA Cup on Sunday when we beat Sunderland, which might keep Phil Parkinson’s dreams of Man United alive, to move into the last eight of the FA Cup.

An early goal sent us on our way with a two-nil win, and a place in the quarter finals secured – a first quarter final in almost 40-years, at a packed our Valley Parade on Sunday.

The four-two win at Stamford Bridge in the last round sent out a message, Sunderland would have still come into this as favourites but it didn’t take us long to go into the lead when Morias’ freekick was only cleared to Clarke had an effort that hit O’Shea (3) and ended up in the back of the net for an own goal with just a few minutes played.

Our goal, which already came after Clarke had gone close, was almost doubled by Hanson as we threatened to end this tie with only 15-minutes played with Johnson denied by a Williams save, had Fletcher not hesitated McArdle wouldn’t have got back in time to make a goal saving challenge with the goal gaping.

Jones and Hanson both went close before the break as we ended the half on top, and ahead.

Stead (61), capitalising on a mistake from Johnson, has now scored in every round when he fired under Sunderland ‘keeper Mannone just past the hour to double the lead and secure our safe passage into the last eight….
