Result: Sheffield United take all three points from 10-man Bradford City

Two second-half goals after the 47th-minute dismissal of Stephen Darby earn Sheffield United a 2-0 League One victory over 10-man Bradford at Valley Parade.

Sheffield United overcame the 10 men of Bradford City to record a 2-0 victory at Valley Parade this evening which moves them up to seventh place in League One.

Aaron McLean fired a volley over the bar in the first minute before Alan Sheehan went close with a free kick for the hosts.

The visitors also threatened through Jose Baxter as the first half progressed, but the sides went into the interval goalless.

However, just two minutes after the break, Stephen Darby was shown a second yellow card for tugging back Jamie Murphy.

The red card handed the Blades the initiative and they took the lead in the 66th minute when Bob Harris fired Murphy's cutback into the top corner from the edge of the box.

Sheehan then went close with another free kick before Jonathan Stead struck the foot of the post with a header as Bradford pushed men forward in search of a leveller.

However, their urgency led to a mistake by Andrew Davies, who gifted the ball to Marc McNulty in the 83rd minute. The forward raced clear and kept his composure to finish as he sealed all three points for Nigel Clough's side.

Mark Yeates struck the bar late on as the home side refused to give in, but Darby's red card proved costly as the Bantams left empty-handed.
