The Spireites led early on through Kristian Dennis’ fourth goal of the season, but that was cancelled out by Omari Patrick.

Alex Jones’ five-minute second-half brace seemingly killed the game off.

Jordan Sinnott gave the hosts a glimmer of hope late on, before Jacob Hanson netted Bradford a fourth to deservedly secure the points.
