Bradford have produced a great FA Cup run this season and seem to embody everything the competition is about. After coming from the 1st round against Halifax right through to the fifth round beating Sunderland.
Both Gus Poyet and Phil Parkinson described the 5th round match as "a typical cup tie".
The match began with a quick pace and it was Bradford who were rewarded, with a goal after Billy Clarke's shot, deflected in off John O'Shea to give the Bantams the lead.
Although Sunderland did begin to pile on the pressure and were denied a penalty after Steven Fletcher was fouled in the box.
However, Bradford's fighting spirit prevailed and Jon Stead (who has scored at every round in the FA Cup) scored in the 61st minute. To put Bradford 2-0 up.
Sunderland did come close to scoring late on with a Connor Wickham headed chance, but again were unable to score.
