Peterborough 0-1 Bradford- Match Report

Jordy Hiwula fires Bradford to first win of the season at Peterborough

It was an afternoon of firsts as Bradford triumphed 1-0 at Peterborough.

Jordy Hiwula fired his first Bantams goal - also their first of the season - to secure the first victory of manager Stuart McCall's second spell in charge.

It arrived after just 12 minutes as the frontman, on a season-long loan from Huddersfield, met captain Tony McMahon's cross from the right with a cushioned header.

And that effort was enough to ensure Grant McCann tasted defeat as Posh manager for the first time in his seventh game at the helm after a couple of caretaker spells during last season.

His side created little of note until Marcus Maddison was denied by a fine Colin Doyle save with five minutes to go.

Paul Taylor had earlier tested the visiting goalkeeper while Tom Nichols steered a header wide.

In fact Bradford should have won more emphatically as Josh Cullen missed a glorious chance to mark the start of his second loan spell with a goal early in the second half.

He side-footed wide from 10 yards after McMahon had once more unlocked the home defence.
