WYCOMBE 0 BRADFORD CITY 3
Nathan Doyle scored his first goals for City as they stunned in-form Wycombe for a fourth away win of the season.
The Bantams bounced back to form in stunning fashion against a side who had won their last three games without conceding a goal.
Doyle needed less than a minute to blow that record out the water and City, with Andrew Davies back in the fold, never looked back.
Will Atkinson’s excellent finish made it 2-0 with ten minutes left and Doyle fired the third from the penalty spot as City claimed their first league win of 2013 in style.
It's all over and what a good win from City.
Nelson deflects shot wide as Wycombe play on for nothing more than pride.
Crowd is 3,068
Great save from Duke to deny Morgan a consolation goal.
Sub subbed for Wycombe as Kuffour replaces Andrade. And McHugh comes on for Davies, who has been fantastic on his comeback.
3-0 DOYLE again
Penalty for City as Hanson is tripped in corner of box by Archer. Doyle taking it .....
Another soft decision goes City's way and Bill Turnbull throws his arms to the Heavens in frustration. Whatever would Susanah say?
Duke wins a generous foul after appearing to misjudge Grant cross.
Archer does well to come through crowd of players to punch away free-kick by Jones.
Grant is booked for foul on Dickson just outside edge of penalty area.
Gray goes off to generous applause after putting in a good shift. Hanson on for last 20 minutes.
But short corner comes to nothing and Wycombe use delay to make their first change as McClure makes way for Andrade.
City corner count reaches double figures.
Dunne appears to hand ball as he shrugs off Atkinson but his shot is a typical defender's and flies into crowd.
Concern for City as Nelson goes down in a heap. But the big man is up and able to continue.
That would have been a belting goal. Very unlucky.
Another lovely pass from Jones sets up Gray for cross. Reid picks out Thompson whose thunderbolt rocks the underside of the bar...
Big chorus of "He used to work at the Co-op"... Wonder who's warming up on the touchline?
Good ball from Gray sends Atkinson into decent crossing position but he wastes the opportunity.
Corner number nine for City, cleared as far as Doyle whose shot is blocked. Wycombe immediately break away through Wood and Duke turns ball behind.

Winfield gets Wycombe's second yellow card for foul on Atkinson.
Gray chips over the top to send Thompson away but he's gone a shade early and flag is up.
Jones looks for Thompson at back post but Winfield heads away.
City spread the ball well as Jones picks out Reid to win another City corner.
RT @medwaybantam: Half way to 3 points, solid 2nd half needed now #bcafc— @yorkie_thrower 12 February 2013
Reid shot turned behind for a corner. City started second half as they did the first.
Teams back out for second half, no changes for either side.
Half-time and City worth their 1-0 lead.
Atkinson cuts in from the right to unleash drive wide. Not a bad effort but probably not worth the delayed "oooh" from the City fans at the other end.
Two minutes of added time to play. First one is taken up with booking for Scowen - his tenth of the season.
More good skill from Reid to get to byline but is underneath the cross which flies over goalmouth.
Jones free-kick fisted unconvincingly away by Archer. Reid causing Wycombe problems with his dribbling.
Reid has back-tracked well and does it again to stop Grant making a run. Winger has the bit between his teeth tonight.
And does enough to put off Dave Winfield who cannot direct his header.
Davies stretches to toe ball away from Morgan to concede Wycombe corner.
Great run from Darby and his dangerous low cross is cleared in front of goal by Stewart.
City keep the pressure on as Scowen fouls Thompson near corner flag. But free-kick is too loopy for Davies who can get no power on the header.
Intelligent low pass from Darby to Gray as City win another corner.
Nelson header from corner blocked and Thompson's drive deflected behind for another corner which Archer claims.
Driving run from Reid takes the ball from halfway line to win a corner.
Davies and Atkinson combine well but the defender's pass inside just dies on the ploughed field outside the penalty area.
Davies looking like he's never been away.
Scowen's corner is met by Stewart but the left back's header flies wide. Think Jones had near post covered.
Reid drives well over from 30 yards out before Wycombe respond with a corner.
But Jones kick cannot clear first defender and danger is over.
Corner for City after Thompson is eased out by defender in box.
Good lively game this. You can see confidence in Wycombe's play but City have looked bright as well going forward.
Dangerous free-kick by Morgan curls just past Duke's near post.
Davies launches into a full-blooded challenge on Lewis, wins ball but referee gives free-kick just outside box.
Davies shows good control to get out of potentially tight hole as two blue shirts converge on him.
Reid pops up on right wing to have a run but loses possession near penalty area. Good positive start from City.
Scowen flights it high and Davies heads it back towards his own goal. Fortunately it's straight at Duke or that would have been an embarrassing return.
Corner to Wycombe, first one of game.
Wycombe launch response and Scowen heads over Grant cross.
Dickson's long throw was flicked on by Thompson and fell into path of DOYLE to half-volley into the corner. His first goal of the season and City off to a great start. 1-0
GOAL,,,, Nathan Doyle!
Thompson immediately drills in a cross that Johnson knocks clear.
City kick off. It is Thompson and Gray up front.
We're Bradford City, we'll sing in the dark ..... no lights on in the away end.
City wearing their away top with black shorts and white socks. First time we've seen that combo this season.
Bill Turnbull of BBC Breakfast sat in press box. No sign of Susanah Reid unfortunately...
Five minutes to kick-off and it's time for the Wembley chant... Never grows old though!
City's 30th league game of the season - and 44th in all.
Hanson n wells dropped! Interesting-gray gets another chance t try convince the fans- feel for Connell rarther hav him in #bcafc— @markbarron1 12 February 2013
PP see's players every day, most of us see them once a fortnight. I trust his judgement on Gray / Connell. See what tonight brings! #bcafc— @addy_5 12 February 2013
Wycombe unchanged after beating York 4-0 at the weekend - their third straight win. They have also not conceded a goal in any of those.
WYCOMBE: Archer, Harriman, Dunne, Winfield, Stewart, Grant, Lewis, Scowen, Wood, Morgan, McClure. Subs: Johnson, Ainsworth, Spring, Andrade, McCoy, Kuffour, Harrison.
Interesting selection from PP tonight - hoping Andy Gray bags for the bantams #bcafc— @Bearovski 12 February 2013
The Connell lovers won't be happy! But I'd pick him over Gray. #bcafc— @Mr_Stozza 12 February 2013
Phil Parkinson makes five changes to the City starting line-up on a pitch that looks very boggy.
The most significant addition is Andrew Davies for his first involvement since suffering a knee injury at Burton at the end of October.
He comes in for Tom Naylor, who has returned to Derby after his loan. The other change in the back four is left back Ryan Dickson for Curtis Good.
Will Atkinson is back in right midfield for Zavon Hines, who is not even on the bench after travelling.
Both strikers are switched with Andy Gray partnering Garry Thompson.
There is no Ricky Ravenhill who is ill.
CITY: Duke, Darby, Davies, Nelson, Dickson, Atkinson, Jones, Doyle, Reid, Thompson, Gray. Subs: Hanson, McHugh, Connell, Wells, Turgott, Good, McLaughlin.
