City made it back-to-back wins with their first Valley Parade victory of the season.

Goals at the end of each half saw off Torquay as the Bantams followed up last week's 5-4 thriller at Cheltenham.

A quiet first half saw little incident other than an early stretching shot from Michael Flynn that went just wide.

But James Hanson broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time, heading home from James O'Brien's free-kick.

City had a couple of second-half scares as Chris Hargreaves headed over and Simon Eastwood fumbled a cross before recovering to deny Tim Sills.

But they wrapped up the three points in stoppage time when substitute Chris Brandon burst clear on to Flynn's through ball to notch a long-awaited first goal for his hometown club.
