Former Bradford players Devante Cole and Jordy Hiwula scored two of the goals as Fleetwood gained revenge for last season’s League One play-off semi-final defeat with victory at Valley Parade. Fleetwood’s win – their first at Valley Parade – ended Bradford’s six-match unbeaten league run that had lifted them into third place. All the goals came in a 19-minute spell in the second half.After a dour first period, Fleetwood shook the Bantams by going in front in the 51st minute following a mistake by Bradford skipper Romain Vincelot.

The goal was scored by Hiwula, who was Bradford’s leading scorer last season during a season-long loan from Huddersfield.Cole, who joined Fleetwood from Bradford two seasons ago, intercepted Vincelot’s pass before delivering a through ball for Hiwula to score.The visitors scored a second five minutes later after goalkeeper Colin Doyle was booked for bringing down Cole on the edge of the penalty area. Kyle Dempsey’s free-kick rebounded off the defensive wall, but he retrieved the ball to cross for Cole to score with a close-range shot.Ashley Hunter then put the result beyond doubt with a third goal, two minutes after coming on as a substitute. He took a pass from Cole in a Fleetwood counter-attack before scoring with a shot into the far top corner.Report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsBradford1DoyleBooked at 54mins29McMahon22Knight-PercivalBooked at 29mins5Kilgallon3ChicksenSubstituted forPoleonat 80’minutes6Vincelot4Reeves7Law17Gilliead19JonesSubstituted forWykeat 57’minutes34PatrickSubstituted forTaylorat 57’minutesSubstitutes2Thompson9Wyke10Taylor11Poleon15Field18Hendrie23RaederFleetwood21Cairns12Bolger6Pond5Eastham2Coyle18GlendonSubstituted forSowerbyat 81’minutes8Dempsey11Grant3Bell7Hiwula-MayifuilaSubstituted forHunterat 69’minutes44ColeSubstituted forBurnsat 85’minutesSubstitutes1Neal9Burns15Rodgers20Ekpolo22Hunter23Schwabl28SowerbyReferee:Graham SalisburyAttendance:18,799Match StatsHome TeamBradfordAway TeamFleetwoodPossessionHome60%Away40%ShotsHome21Away14Shots on TargetHome6Away6CornersHome12Away3FoulsHome7Away7Live TextPosted at Match ends, Bradford City 0, Fleetwood Town 3.Full TimePosted at 90’+6′ Second Half ends, Bradford City 0, Fleetwood Town 3.Posted at 90’+6′ Attempt missed.
