Goulding: Netted a brace
Jeff Goulding's double helped Cheltenham to their biggest win of the season as they beat Bradford 4-0 at Whaddon Road.
Marlon Pack and Wes Thomas were also on target as the Robins ran riot against their lacklustre visitors.
Cheltenham dominated from the start but had to wait until two goals just before the break swung the game in their favour.
Steve Elliott and Pack went close early on before their pressure finally told after 31 minutes when Goulding's heavily-deflected shot wrong-footed keeper Lenny Pidgeley.
A second goal arrived five minutes later. Pack stole the ball from Tommy Doherty before burying a 25-yard effort into the bottom left-hand corner.
David Syers had a header chalked off for offside as Bradford looked for a way back into the game but Goulding scrambled home his second midway through the second half to ease the nerves. Thomas completed the scoring after 76 minutes, firing home the goal of the game after a neat exchange with Brian Smikle and the win moves Town into the play-off places.
