Barclays League Division Two
Wednesday, March 30, 1988

Swindon Town Bradford City
R.Wegerle (49'), D.Bamber (52')
HT: 0-0 R.Futcher (68'), M.Leonard (90')
Attendance:  8,203    



 
After the first match is abandoned with the Town 3-0 up, the rematch seems to be going the same way, when Roy Wegerle and Dave Bamber put the Town two up with two goals in a three minute spell early in the second half. Bradford have other ideas though - pulling one back with just over twenty minutes remaining, before equalising in stoppage time to steal a point.
