Rochdale 3-0 Bradford

Two second-half penalties from Adam Le Fondre helped Rochdale to a win over fellow promotion-hopefuls Bradford.

Rochdale took the lead when Mark Jones' free-kick was headed home by Rory McArdle from close range.

The hosts were awarded a penalty when Barry Conlon handled Joe Thompson's flick-on and Le Fondre rifled home the spot-kick.

Matthew Clarke then felled Le Fondre and the striker duly picked himself up to grab his second goal of the night.
