Match-winner Wells scores for Bradford

Nahki Wells' stunning match-winning goal earned Bradford City a place in the second round of the FA Cup.

The 21-year-old came on in the 66th minute and let rip with a wonder strike from 30 yards to give Bradford a 1-0 win over Rochdale.

Wells cut a lively figure after replacing Ross Hannah and twice went close to scoring before breaking the deadlock six minutes from time.

Shortly after entering the fray, Wells saw a first time strike pushed away by the Rochdale goalkeeper.

Minutes later the striker also sent another effort just yards wide of the far post from inside the area.

Wells missed Bermuda's World Cup qualifier against Barbados on Friday so to make himself available for Bradford's FA Cup tie against Rochdale.

However, he is due to return home for his country's second game against the Bajan Tridents on Monday.

Goalkeeper Freddy Hall was an unused substitute in Northampton Town's 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Luton Town.
