CITY are through to the third round of the Capital One Cup after the most dramatic of wins over neighbours Leeds.
Late goals from James Hanson and Billy Knott cancelled out Matt Smith's header just seconds earlier - and gave the Bantams their first derby win at Valley Parade since 1932.
It was a tremendously-spirited performance from Phil Parkinson's side against opponents who were down to ten men after the early red card for Luke Murphy.
Aaron Mclean, Jason Kennedy and Billy Clarke all had chances to turn City's pressure into goals.
But it was Smith who broke the deadlock with a header from David Norris' cross. City refused to let heads drop and Knott levelled with a 25-yard screamer.
Then Hanson completed the comeback by nodding home Gary Liddle's cross to send Valley Parade into raptures.
Whistle sounds - City have done it!
Smith gets his head on the end of it - and heads over
Clarke booked for kicking ball away as Leeds win free-kick
Billy Knott gets a huge ovation as he is subbed by Dolan
Huge escape for City as Poleon bundles ball wide from a couple of yards out...

The midfielder opens his City account with an explosive drive from 25 yards that screams into the roof of the net!

Clarke shot tipped away by Taylor. Good response!
Massive test of character for City now to lift themselves...

Billy Clarke skips over a challenge by Stephen Warnock
Luke Murphy receives his marching orders
What a chance this is for Leeds lad McBurnie...
Mclean replaced by McBurnie, 70th minute. No surprise after struggling early on with a problem but he's certainly worked hard.
Clarke holds his head in his hands...
Clarke denied by Taylor at near post.... Meredith and Mclean combine and striker slips Clarke through but Leeds keeper stands tall to block
The Kop have revved up once more as play briefly stops for treatment to Warnock

Smith on the end of it again but it's another City corner
Clarke makes himself some room for a shot which is deflected behind for first corner of the second half
More noise coming from the away fans now tho

So close again! Meredith cross for Kennedy who sweeps it wide from close range...
Junior Lewis looking animated on the touchline. Well sort of...

A very dapper Jamie Lawrence just came over to say that this game is there for the taking. And he wouldn't have tackled like Murphy did ...
Gottastay patient here keep the ball moving and no stupid errors or tackles. #bcafc

And that's half-time ....

Clarke cross looks too high for Hanson but his flicks drops for Kennedy to volley into side-netting
Sheehan with another decent delivery from the corner but Smith booms it away
Another great ball whipped in by Meredith but Warnock scrambles behind
Leeds dropping so deep they are almost in Huddersfield
This is like being back in League 2 playing some relegation candidate, just 10 men sat deep with the occasional long ball. Hilarious. #bcafc

Good to hear that the main stand screecher has got her ticket ...
Kennedy cross has too much on it for Hanson but Meredith retrieves with another good cross which deserved some reward...
Great game for a neutral, this. Shame I'm not a neutral. #bcafc

Kennedy mishit cross nearly embarrasses Taylor who is forced to tip it over the bar for City corner.

Meredith throw-in drops to Hanson and loose ball falls for Clarke. His shot is blocked by Pearce
Getting treatment from Matt Barrass. Striker was nowhere near the ball, maybe the calf flaring up?
Mclean down on the floor
Massive roar as City get into the Leeds penalty box. Shouts for a handball ignored

Caught up for a few words with Nahki Wells as he hot-footed it towards the Sky studio. Here's the link:
Leeds have gone English for tonight with only one Italian, Tomasso Bianchi, in the starting line-up named by Dave Hockaday.
LEEDS: Taylor, Wootton, Pearce, Cooper, Warnock, Bianchi, Tonge, Norris, Murphy, Sharp, Smith. Subs: Ajose, Taylor, Cook, Poleon, Benedicic, Antenucci, Silvestri.
Billy Clarke returns as Phil Parkinson makes four changes from the side that started the Peterborough game.
Clarke, now fully recovered from his minor hamstring injury, will play in the hole behind James Hanson and Aaron Mclean. Mason Bennett is ineligible because Derby are still in the cup.
Ben Williams replaces Jordan Pickford, another who is not allowed to play, and James Meredith comes in for Andrew Davies. Alan Sheehan shifts across to centre back.
CITY: Williams, Darby, McArdle, Sheehan, Meredith, Liddle, Kennedy, Knott, Clarke, Mclean, Hanson. Subs: Dolan, Yeates, Morais, Shariff, Routis, McBurnie, Urwin.
Just seen Nahki Wells, who's here as Sky's special guest for the night. Hoping to grab a word with him later...
Good luck tonight to the bantams #bcafc the jones's will be watching xx

We'll try this again after the blank against Peterborough, and what better time than a local derby against the auld enemies...
Don't forget to tweet a picture of you or your friend’s goal face when, yes when, City score tonight by adding the hashtag #tandagoalface.
You can also tweet your pictures to me @parkertanda. Get snapping and we will publish the best in an online gallery and in the T&A.
