Last Updated: 13/10/18 5:17pm
Accrington moved into the play-off places in League One with a 3-1 win over Bradford who remain at the wrong end of the table.
Billy Kee scored a penalty after 39 minutes, in-form Offrande Zanzala fired home a superb solo effort for his fourth goal in four games and Sean McConville finished off the scoring for the home side.
Eoin Doyle netted for Bradford who have now lost 10 of their 14 League One games and remain in the relegation spots.
Stanley had a couple of chances through McConville before Bradford defender Ryan McGowan was penalised for hand ball in the area under pressure from Zanzala.
Bradford manager David Hopkin was booked for disputing the decision and it took three minutes before Kee fired home his sixth goal of the season and his fourth from the penalty spot.
Goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell kept out a Kee header on the stroke of half-time before Stanley extended their lead with 54 minutes gone as McConville fed Zanzala who raced past his marker and slotted beyond O'Donnell.
Bradford came close with Jonny Maxted superbly keeping out Kai Brunker's strike but it was Doyle who got one back after 62 minutes when Jack Payne found him in the area and he blasted home.
Their revival was short-lived as, with 66 minutes gone, Stanley broke in numbers and Jordan Clark fed the ball to McConville who found the bottom of the net to complete the scoring.
