James Hanson: Amongst the goals

Bradford City moved up to fourth in League One with a 2-0 victory over Rochdale at Spotland.

Second half goals from Jason Kennedy and James Hanson earned the visitors the points.In an opening half of few chances Rochdale's best opportunities fell to Matt Done. He had a shot deflected wide off Bantams defender Alan Sheehan and found the net in the 20th minute with an angled header only to see his effort ruled offside.

Bradford grew into the game and Hanson should have done better when he headed Filipe Morais' cross wide. Dale goalkeeper Conrad Logan made the only save of note in the opening 45 minutes, diving down to his right to keep out Kennedy's volley.

Jordan Pickford's first save came minutes into the second half when the Bradford stopper blocked Rhys Bennett's firm header.

But it was Bradford who made the breakthrough in the 60th minute, former Dale midfielder Kennedy controlling Hanson's knock down and firing home a low volley.

It was 2-0 six minutes later when Hanson headed Sheehan's corner past Logan to complete a memorable week for the striker who netted the winner against Leeds.
