BRADFORD 3-1 BRISTOL ROVERS
FULL-TIME! It's all over! Charlie Wyke's hat-trick was the difference as Bradford claim all three points. Great game! Highlights coming up here shortly.
WATCH: ROVERS CONSOLATION
And here's how Billy Bodin pulled one back for Bristol Rovers.
90: Four minutes of added time.
WATCH: WYKE COMPLETES HAT-TRICK
And here's how the Bradford striker notched his third...
WATCH: WYKE'S SECOND
Here's the second goal scored by Charlie Wyke this afternoon...
87: The assault hasn't quite come for Bristol Rovers and it's looking like too little, too late.
84: Bradford threw away a three-goal lead last week at Walsall, but that took a half rather than 10 minutes. Bristol Rovers throwing men forward right now.
GOAL! BRADFORD 3-1 BRISTOL ROVERS (Bodin, 81)
Lifeline for Bristol Rovers. Nichols cuts inside and curls a stunning effort onto the inside of the post, which bounces perfectly for Billy Bodin to turn home.
It couldn't happen again to Bradford, could it?
BRADFORD 3-0 BRISTOL ROVERS
78: SUB! Standing ovation for Charlie Wyke as he's replaced by Alex Jones.
GOAL! BRADFORD 3-0 BRISTOL ROVERS (Wyke, 73)
Hat-trick hero. Charlie Wyke bravely nods in from about six inches at the back stick after Reeves hooked an excellent ball across the face of the goal. Could have absolutely clattered into the post there.
That's game over.
BRADFORD 2-0 BRISTOL ROVERS
72: SUBS! A second change for Bristol Rovers as Rory Gaffney replaces Ellis Harrison.
While Dominic Poleon makes way for Omari Patrick for Bradford.
68: If Kyle Walker ever needs another right-back to teach him how to cross, he could do worse than look towards Tony McMahon. Another wonderful set-piece flashes right through the heart of the Rovers box, and I've no idea how no one got on the end of it to score Bradford's third.
66: SHOT! Law surges through the middle and has a pop from just outside the area, but it's straight at Slocombe in the Rovers goal.
65: Bodin trying to get Bristol Rovers back into the game, but a very ambitious 30-odd yard attempt isn't going to help that. Decent enough, but it's going to take a lot to beat Doyle from there.
Bradford are now 100/30 to win this game 3-0 with Sky Bet. That's price-boosted from 3/1. It's 15/8 that Rovers find the net from here.

GOAL! BRADFORD 2-0 BRISTOL ROVERS (Wyke, 62)
Easy as you like. More dismal defending by Bristol Rovers at a corner as McMahon whips one in and Charlie Wyke rises highest in the six-yard box to nod home his second of the afternoon.
Bradford have daylight!
BRADFORD 1-0 BRISTOL ROVERS
59: CHANCE! Moore super approach play from Bradford as they work the ball via Wyke into Law in the box, but his attempt is weak and doesn't even reach the target. Put your foot through it, lad.
58: SUB! First change of the afternoon. Tom Nichols replaces Byron Moore for Bristol Rovers.
57: What a waste. Bodin buys a free-kick on the edge of the area for Rovers after some lovely footwork, but Brown slams the resulting effort straight at the wall. Really poor attempt.
55: YELLOW! Vincelot, who rarely goes too long without finding himself into the book, picks up a caution for chopping down Harrison as Bristol Rovers attempted to break.
52: Bit of a let off for McMahon is his slip allows Harrison in for Rovers, but he fails to take the ball on before turning back and seeing a shot deflected over the bar. Could've been a lot worse for Bradford there.
50: CHANCE! A poor clearance falls to Wyke on the corner of the 18-yard box, and he thumps an effort back towards goal which sails wide. Probably looked closer than it actually was.
47: PENALTY SHOUT! Bodin looks to the referee after he appears to go over in the box, but it was a bit of a desperate plea after his first touch got away from him. Referee having none of it.
SECOND HALF! We're back underway.
WATCH: BRADFORD'S OPENER
Nearly time for the second half. Here's a reminder of Bradford's opener in the meantime...
HALF-TIME! Bradford in the lead and in charge for the most part. Charlie Wyke put them in front and they could have had one or two more. Rovers did have one big chance, however, but Moore's header was cleared off the line by Knight-Percival.
Good game so far.
45: One minute added on.
WATCH: OFF THE LINE
Brilliant work by Knight-Percival to deny Bristol Rovers an equaliser. Just hit play...
43: SHOT! Clarke turns looks up and has a pop from 25 yards for Rovers, and it's not a bad effort at all as it flashes just wide of the post.
41: Don Goodman is in the commentary box and thinks Bradford should have had a penalty a couple of minutes ago. Broadbent was tugging the shirt of Wyke in the box, and thinks the defender got away with one there. Nothing given, though.
38: OFF THE LINE! What a clearance. A cross to the far post is hooked back across goal by Harrison, and a Moore header looks for all the world like it's going to level the game, before Knight-Percival scrambles back to his line to get his knee in the way and keep it out.
36: Bristol Rovers appear to have finally got a grip on the game and curtailed Bradford's attacking threat in the last few minutes. They'll be very happy to only be a goal down as we edge towards half-time.
31: Rovers finally having a mini spell here after providing no attacking threat whatsoever so far. But the move ends after a poor bit of control from Bodin on the edge of the area.
28: SHOT! Poleon makes space 30 yards from goal and decides to try his luck. It's a decent effort straight down the barrel, and Slocombe makes a bit of a meal of it in the Rovers goal before clearing up at the second attempt.
27: CHANCE! Bradford are totally dominant here. Law bursts into the box and fires a low ball across the six-yard area. It looks for all the world like someone is going to turn it home, but somehow no one does and Harrison manages to clear it away.
24: CLOSE! Rovers can't cope with Bradford's corners at the moment. Law sneaks into an unmarked position at the near post and nods a McMahon corner just over the bar.
WATCH: WYKE NETS OPENER
Here's how Bradford City got the opener...
20: A very loose back pass by Brown allows Poleon in behind the Rovers defence, but he just runs it a bit wide and then his shot from a tight angle doesn't really threaten Slocombe.
17: Bradford well worthy of the lead at the Northern Commercials Stadium after the start they'd made. Bristol Rovers failing to keep a clean sheet again. Interesting opening so far.
GOAL! BRADFORD 1-0 BRISTOL ROVERS (Wyke, 13)
You can't say it wasn't coming. Bradford take the lead in the simplest of fashions. McMahon's corner is headed on to the far post by Vincelot, and Charlie Wyke is there to poke it home.
BRADFORD 0-0 BRISTOL ROVERS
12: Delightful cross by Chicksen from the left right into the heart of the Rovers box, but no one can get on the end of it.
8: Sustained pressure from Bradford since pretty much the opening minute of the game. Can they make it tell?
5: CLOSE! Vincelot has his head in his hands. A corner delivered to the near post finds the Bradford skipper in a great position, but he powers his effort just past the near post. Anywhere on target and that's an opener.
3: WIDE! Lively start here. Bradford go up the other end and work a great position after some slick passing, the ball then falls into the path of Gilliead in the box, but he never really looks comfortable as he stabs it well off target. Should have done better.
1: CLOSE! Less than 30 seconds gone and Rovers are alive. Bodin turns and makes himself some space just outside the box, and fires an effort just wide.
KICK-OFF! We're all go at the Northern Commercials Stadium!
TEAMS ARE OUT!
And the action is about to get underway over on Sky Sports Football...
