(Thompson, Rees 2) 3 BRADFORD (Allen) 1.

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 30TH AT ST JAMES'S PARK.

The highlight of this game was Jimmy Thompson's grand goal, scored with a thumping shot from 25 yards out. It was better than the one hammered in by Gordon Dale against Walsall on Saturday, and quite the best on the St James's Park field this season

City: Jones; Foley and Whitnall; Mitchell, Oliver, and Thompson; Stiffle, Rees, Micklewright, Birch, and Dale.
Bradford: Hough; Walker and Lawton; Brims, Williams, and Byrom; McHard, Allen, Buchanan, Atkinson, and McAllister.

Referee Mr G.Thorpe of Swindon. Linesmen Messrs W.Webster and B.Watts.

Bradford played up strongly in the second half and looked as if they might save a point until Rees with the last of his two goals put the issue beyond doubt 15 minutes from the end.
