Huddersfield Town picked up three points away at struggling Wigan Athletic, but it was Bradford City’s FA Cup win at Chelsea that made all the headlines.
Bradford overcame a 49 place gap in league standings to beat Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge, on a weekend of incredible FA Cup shocks. First half goals from Gary Cahill and Ramires gave the Premiership leaders a 2-0 lead, but a Jon Stead thunderbolt grabbed one back for the Bantams just before half-time. Bradford came out the stronger after half-time, with a few half-chances, but it was former Chelsea man Filipe Morais who scored the equaliser on 75 minutes for the Bantams, with a side foot finish. Andy Halliday curled a right foot shot into the top corner on 82 minutes to send the 6,000 travelling City fans into raptures, before Mark Yeates’ goal in injury time sealed the win for the Bantams. Jon Stead and Billy Knott were outstanding in a Bradford side that showed commitment and passion from the first minute to the last, and they fully deserved their victory against Jose Mourinho’s men.
Huddersfield Town won 1-0 at Wigan Athletic, with Conor Coady scoring with just 8 minutes left on the clock. The Terriers had the better of the early exchanges, having two chances cleared off the line. Nahki Wells had a chance cleared off the line by Liam Ridgewell, before a Mark Hudson header came agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock for Huddersfield. Huddersfield looked the more likely to score, and finally got a goal on 82 minutes, when Coady curled a shot into the top corner, leaving Scott Carson stranded.
