21...Freekicks...11 Verdict A BLOOD and thunder affair that had everything, but the Clarets superior defending and their spark up front brought its reward

Heroes GLEN LITTLE ran Bradford's defence ragged and bagged two, if not three, goals. Villain REFEREE Roy Pearson seemed to see only one side sinning when it came to handing out cards

Tactics BURNLEY went for a 4-5-1 with Alan Moore and Glen Little pushing on to help lone striker Ian Moore. The Bantams were 4-3-3 with the late introduction of Robbie Blake adding to their striker power leaving three at the back Skill spot GLEN LITTLE produced a stunning run on 68 minutes beating three challenges in six yards but his shot failed to match the build up Time for action

18Ian and Alan Moore combine to play in Glen Little whose shot hits the inside of a post and then bounces down off the crossbar before hitting the other post. Looked a goal but wasn't given.

22Ashley Ward back heels the ball into Burnley's net but is given offside.

23 Little's low cross is met by Ian Moore but his shot crashes against the crossbar

34 Paul Cook's well-timed tackle denies Gareth Whalley a shot on goal

46 Kevin Ball's challenge wins the ball for Little who breaks clear and finishes superbly to put Clarets ahead

50 Ian Moore bundled over by Andy Myers but his penalty appeal is ignored

52 Wayne Jacobs' shot is cleared off line by Dean West

58 Nik Michopoulos saves well from an Eoin Jess strike

62 Stuart McCall picks out Ward and he fires the Bantams level

67 Beni Carbone spins out of a tackle in the Burnley box but goes down. City demand a penalty, but none given. Carbone escapes the card he should have received if it was a dive

68 Little escapes three tackles to set up scoring chance but incredibly shoots wide

71 Gunnar Halle fires in a fine shot but it comes back off the woodwork

78 Carbone and Jess combine and from the cross Ward puts the ball in the net only to be given offside, the Bantams go crazy with the assistant referee

79 Lee Briscoe's superb long pass frees Alan Moore and his cross is turned in by Little

81 City equalise again as substitute Robbie Blake forces a save from Michopoulos only for McCall to blast in the loose ball

85 Burnley go back in front as substitute Tony Ellis wriggles free to score from a narrow angle

90 Ward sets up Whalley but Michopoulos saves well then Carbone finds Ward whose header gives McCall a great chance but he lifts it over the bar BURNLEY BRADFORD CITY Ward 61, McCall 81 Little 46, 79, Ellis 85
