Bradford made it back-to-back League Two wins under new boss Graham Alexander with a 3-0 away win at struggling Forest Green.

Goals from Matt Platt, Andy Cook, and Jamie Walker sealed victory before Ash Taylor was given a straight red card for the visitors in second-half stoppage-time.

Bradford led early on through Platt after he glanced home an Ash Taylor header back across the goal following a clever corner routine.

Bantams forward Cook was sent tumbling by Rovers defender Jordan Moore-Taylor in the penalty area soon after and sent goalkeeper James Belshaw the wrong way with the resulting spot-kick after 21 minutes.

Forest Green’s Tyrese Omotoye squandered a golden opportunity after the break after he anticipated a short back pass but he dragged his effort wide of the far post.

Callum Jones hit the crossbar for the hosts before Walker made it three as he slotted home a loose ball following some neat build-up on the Bradford right.

Taylor was given his marching order in stoppage-time for a professional foul as Olly Sully was through on goal but it was the visitors who took home the points.

The result, following two draws for Forest Green in recent weeks, means they remain in the relegation zone in League Two, three points off 22nd place Tranmere Rovers.
