Match Stats: Walsall 1 Bradford City 2

Here are the Match Stats from Saturday's League Two clash between Walsall and Bradford City.
The Saddlers arrived at the match on the back of a narrow defeat to Newport County, a result which saw the Reds' winless run extended to four games, giving Brian Dutton plenty of work ahead of kick-off.

The Saddlers continued their spell of lacklustre performances in front of goal as Bantams attacker Levi Sutton put his side into the lead a few minutes before half-time, during a spell which the Reds had been on top.

Walsall's pain didn't end there as former Saddlers striker Andy Cook went on to double his side's lead with sixty-six minutes in the clock, no doubt a sweet tasting goal for the frontman.

All was not lost however, as the home side went on to halve the deficit as Dan Scarr looked to be the man who got on the end of Cameron Norman's flick to give the Saddlers a bit of hope with thirteen-minutes of normal time remaining.
