Goalkeeper Simon Eastwood was the hero as Bradford won 3-2 on penalties to go through to the quarter-final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at the expense of 10-man Notts County.

Notts scored their first two spot-kicks only for Bradford to take a 3-2 lead, before Eastwood denied his fellow keeper Kasper Schmeichel with his decisive second save, having already kept out Delroy Facey's effort.

Notts twice took the lead during normal time in an entertaining match, Craig Westcarr putting them in front after 11 minutes with an angled shot before Michael Boulding equalised after 20 minutes when taking a pass from Michael Flynn.

The visitors mounted a late rally after going down to 10 men when former Bradford defender Graeme Lee was sent off for a second bookable offence and Delroy Facey restored their lead after 85 minutes, side-footing the ball home from Westcarr's cross.

However, Chris Brandon set up the penalty shootout by equalising with a last-minute header from James O'Brien's corner.
