Tranmere 1 – 2 Bradford

Andy Cook continued his prolific start to the season with both goals in Bradford’s 2-1 win at Tranmere.

The Bantams took the lead after just three minutes when Cook capitalized on some Rovers markings inside the six-yard box to convert Richie Smallwood’s corner.

Minutes later, they nearly scored a second from another combination, but Tranmere was saved when Matty Platt headed home Brad Halliday from a free kick that narrowly missed the post.

Tranmere improved a bit at half-time but could not check Bradford goalkeeper Harry Lewis from a series of crosses into the box.

But they were leveled from the first attempt on target in the 49th minute when Kane Hemmings hit a shot from 15 yards.

The Tranmere captain was suddenly in a better mood and, after hitting the crossbar, hit the post in another 20-yard effort.

Elliott Nevitt headed the wide open before Cook restored the lead to Bradford from a Matty Foulds cross to score his ninth goal of the campaign.
