Bradford edged closer to a quick return to Super League and ended Leigh's lingering promotion hopes with a 32-16 victory in the penultimate round of the Super 8s Qualifiers.
Leigh finished six points clear of the Bulls after losing just once in the regular season but it was James Lowes' men who claimed the spoils when it mattered most.
Winger Danny Williams and centre Matty Blythe both scored two tries as Bradford clinched a third win out of six matches, and they will now almost certainly play in the Million-Pound match to determine the 12th place in Super League for 2016.
Jake Mullaney, who enjoyed a superb game at full-back before being withdrawn late on with a head knock, gave Bradford an early lead and Williams went over for his first to give them a 10-0 lead.
The Centurions came roaring back with two tries in the last four minutes of the first half through winger Adam Higson and full-back Gregg McNally to level the scores but Bradford dominated the second half, with Williams grabbing his second and Blythe going over twice in the final quarter, while Danny Addy kicked six
Bob Beswick pulled a try back for the home side but it could not prevent them sliding to a fifth defeat in six games.
