Bradford Park Avenue made it five matches unbeaten with a dominant victory over Gainsborough Trinity.

Oli Johnson struck in the first half with a thumping volley from Javan Vidal’s cross before Adam Boyes netted a brilliant header, finding the top corner from the edge of the box after Ryan Toulson’s delivery.

Home captain Nathan Jarman was sent off with 15 minutes to play after two yellow cards for dissent, before Toulson again was the provider as his ball over the top found Wayne Brooksby, who eventually slotted in Bradford’s third of the game late on.

The result means Avenue have taken 11 points from those five games, scoring 10 goals and conceding just one along the way.

There were a couple of changes to the starting line-up that earned a goalless draw at Stockport County on Saturday, notably in goal as Ed Hall replaced Steven Drench who appeared to take a knock at Edgeley Park but stayed on the pitch.

Avenue were almost in front inside five minutes as Johnson did brilliantly before receiving the ball back from Brooksby, but his effort was well blocked by the Trinity defence.

However 10 minutes later it was 1-0, just seconds after Hall made a decent save up the other end to keep out an Ashley Worsfold strike from range.

Vidal, playing on the right-hand side of midfield, took on full-back Ellis Storey before his low cross flicked off a heel and was emphatically volleyed in by Johnson, the ball flicking off the top of the crossbar on its way in.

Bradford were dealt another injury blow with under 20 minutes on the clock as Matt Hill pulled up, Jamie Spencer replacing him and ensuing the first reshuffle of the night.

Former Avenue man Craig King was the only real threat for the home side, he found Worsfold who dragged a shot wide of the near post.

Again after a Gainsborough effort on goal, the visitors went up the other end and netted themselves.

Toulson picked up the ball in a deep position after brilliant work from Brooksby kept the attack alive, and the full back delivered a good cross which Boyes somehow headed over goalkeeper Henrich Ravas and into the top corner from just inside the penalty area.

Just minutes later Hall had to be at his best as King delivered a deep cross which Jarman headed goalwards, the young stopper doing excellently to acrobatically tip over.

Brooksby saw a shot go straight into the arms of Ravas and Spencer fired over from range as half time came along with Avenue in complete control of proceedings.

The home side made a double substitution at the break, while Mark Bower also made his second change as Johnson came off as a precaution, to be replaced by Adam Nowakowski.

Bradford continued to look dangerous on the attack as Boyes got in on the right, his powerful strike from a tight angle being clawed away by Ravas.

And five minutes later, in a slightly better position, Boyes got in behind again but his touch was just too heavy allowing Ravas out, and the attempt at salvaging a ball across was easily dealt with by Jordan Richards.

Avenue did have some defending to do though as Worsfold’s cross found King at the back post who looked certain to score, his shot beating Hall but finding James Knowles there on the line to keep it out.

Brooksby was enjoying his time on the left hand side, taking Richards on at every opportunity and he should have done better when he cut inside but finished wide from six yards out.

But one minute later the game was put to bed as Trinity captain Jarman received his marching orders, picking up two yellow cards in the space of six minutes, both of which were handed to him for dissent.

Boyes had another opening with nine minutes left, Brooksby playing him in with a neat reverse pass but Ravas came out well to smother the effort.

Finally Bradford did get their third though as Toulson’s perfectly weighted pass was taken in his stride by Brooksby, the winger cutting inside before his low finish beat Ravas and added the deserved gloss to the scoreline.

The visitors could have had a fourth when a clever corner from Brooksby found Spencer on the edge of the box, his precise finish dropping just wide of the post.

But the full time whistle came and Avenue enjoyed their third three-goal victory from the last five games, and their fourth clean sheet in that spell.
