CITY 1 WYCOMBE 0
Garry Thompson's sixth goal of the season earned City their first league home win of 2013.
Thompson struck after just seven minutes, forcing home after James Hanson had nodded down Kyel Reid's free-kick.
It was not a great game and Wycombe should have levelled when Matt McClure headed over from close range at the start of the second half.
But City played with a good spirit and deserved their first league victory at Valley Parade in six games. The win also cuts the gap to the play-offs to seven points.
The only downer on the night was an injury to Ricky Ravenhill, one of six changes from Saturday. But James Meredith came through his first game since New Year's Day.
And that's it, a home win at last!
Dunne booked, which kills more time.
Hanson holds ball up for Reid but his cross-shot heads into orbit!

Ravenhill limps off in pain to be replaced by Doyle. Deserves the applause because he has played well.

City back out already but no sign yet of Wycombe.
City good value for their lead as we reach half-time.
Meredith drills cross towards near post but Thompson a bit slow to react and Archer is down to gather.
Good effort from Hines flies wide - but close enough for the keeper to move across anxiously.
Considering there are very few Wycombe fans here, they are making a decent noise at the moment. A drum always helps though
Wycombe keeper Archer looks unconvincing coming for a Jones free-kick but defence get the ball away.

And to those doubting Hanson... Yet another assist! #bcafc more than just about goals this game of football lark you know. #haters— @JonathonRobert 19 March 2013

If this side wins tonight I reckon PP will stick with it on sat. All that travelling & defeat demanded changes tngt. #Bcafc— @hall_nigel 19 March 2013
City's back four tonight have played together once before this season in the dramatic 3-2 win over Burton in the Capital One Cup third round.
Nearest we've got to our original back 4 for months & months. #Bcafc— @hall_nigel 19 March 2013
Delighted with the back five. Best back five we could have with our squad. Midfield also very good. Thompson & Hanson need a goal. #bcafc— @Cal_BCFC 19 March 2013
Wycombe player/manager Gareth Ainsworth has named himself on the bench.
WYCOMBE: Archer, Harriman, Winfield, Doherty, Dunne, Grant, Scowen, Lewis, Wood, Morgan, McClure. Subs: Ainsworth, Oli, McCoy, Kuffour, Morias, Hause, Ingram.
Ravenhill over Doyle, wow. #BCAFC— @Beaver567 19 March 2013
3 points for The Bantams tonight, I'm going 2-0! #bcafc 💗⚽— @clareleng 19 March 2013
James Meredith features for the first time since New Year's Day as Phil Parkinson again shuffles the City pack.
There are six changes from Saturday's 4-1 defeat at Exeter which really hampered their hopes of catching the top seven.
The most significant switch is in goal where Jon McLaughlin returns after Matt Duke's struggles at St James Park.
Rory McArdle replaces Michael Nelson at centre half and Meredith, now over his glandular fever, is in at left back.
There are three new faces in midfield with Kyel Reid, who had a stand-out appearance as a second-half sub at the weekend, Zavon Hines and Ricky Ravenhill all involved from the start.
CITY: McLaughlin, Darby, McArdle, Davies, Meredith, Hines, Ravenhill, Jones, Reid, Thompson, Hanson. Subs: Connell, Wells, Nelson, McHugh, Atkinson, Doyle, Duke.
Good evening and welcome from the Coral Windows Stadium as City try again for their first home win in 2013.
Team news will be available very shortly although Phil Parkinson has already confirmed that both James Meredith and Kyel Reid will be starting.
