BRADFORD CITY 2, IPSWICH TOWN 0
IPSWICH Town were checked back in their rise towards the Nationwide First Division play-off zone today as lowly Bradford City took advantage of the 50th minute sending off of Icelandic defender Hermann Hreidarsson.
Hreidarsson was adjudged to have raised his arm against Simon Francis five minutes after the start of the second-half.

Town, who had not lost in the league since the 2-1 home defeat to Rotherham on December 7, were shattered. This loss comes on top of last Saturday's 4-3 FA Cup Fourth Round setback at Sheffield United.
Town looked so superior to Bradford in the first-half in terms of football skill and they were denied when Marcus Bent hit the woodwork.
Bent also looked as though he earned a penalty at one stage when he was brought down.
Sadly for the Blues after the break they could not cope with the sending off of Hreidarsson, although substitute Darren Bent rattled Bradford when his shot hit the woodwork.
In a match watched by former Town boss Bobby Robson, on a day when Newcastle were without a game due to the weather, the Blues slumped to a double defeat this season against Bradford. Earlier in the campaign they were beaten 2-1 at Portman Road.
