Goals from skipper James Vaughan, Clayton Donaldson and Sean Scannell gave Bradford their first win of the season as they swept aside Oldham 3-0 at Valley Parade.
The victory extended Bradford’s unbeaten start to life in League Two following draws in their opening two matches.
They took the lead in the fifth minute when Connor Wood crossed from the left and Vaughan scored at the far post from close range.
Oldham, who have lost their first three matches, had most of the possession after that setback, with some neat, constructive play causing some anxious moments in the Bradford defence.
And captain Mohamed Maouche was unlucky to see his shot from the edge of penalty area rebound off a post in the 21st minute.
However, it was the home side who went further ahead in the 32nd minute when right back Kelvin Mellor’s lofted pass found Donaldson unmarked and he lobbed the ball over the head of advancing goalkeeper Gary Woods for Bradford’s second goal.
The second half was an evenly fought affair before the Bantams put the result beyond doubt. Donaldson held the ball up on the right before laying it into the path of the onrushing Scannell to score with a superb shot into the far corner.
