The numbers were evened up two minutes later when Bantams midfielder Callum Cooke saw red for a second bookable offence.
Exeter went down to nine men when Tom Parkes was sent off eight minutes from time.
Eoin Doyle maintained his hot scoring streak as third-placed Swindon beat Walsall 2-1 to condemn the Saddlers to a sixth straight defeat.

Bottom-placed Morecambe are now level on points with Stevenage, who drew 0-0 at Scunthorpe.
Plymouth's game with Grimsby was postponed after severe winds caused damage to the roof of Home Park and rendered parts of the ground unsafe for fans.
