Westcarr double downs Bantams

Craig Westcarr struck twice as Walsall ended a run of 10 games without a victory by securing a 2-0 win at Bradford.

The visitors, who enjoyed more possession in a largely uneventful first half, went in front after 68 minutes when Andrew Taylor's low cross from the left found Westcarr, who just beat the advancing Jon McLaughlin to the ball to poke it into the net.

He then put the result beyond doubt with his second goal in the 78th minute with a shot from the edge of the penalty area, which looped into the net over the head of McLaughlin.

The goal, Westcarr's 14th of the season, came as a result of some neat build-up play on the right by substitutes James Baxendale and James McQuilkin.

Bradford offered little threat in attack, failing to deliver a shot on target, and their best effort was a diving header from defender Andrew Davies, which flashed wide of the post in the 29th minute.
