Lynn arrived late for their first visit to the Horsfall Stadium but left with three points to maintain their second place in the league thanks to a late goal.
A six hour journey to Bradford resulted in a delay to the kick off time but it was Lynn who had the early pressure with the game’s first corner seeing a shot from the edge of the box from Jordan Richards going just wide on eight minutes.
The hosts responded with a shot of their own Lewis Knight just failing to get on the end of Dan Sweeney’s low cross and Mitch Lund’s scuffed effort was blocked.
The only goal of the half arrived on 17 minutes when a poor pass from Rory McAuley on the half-way line let in Lewis Knight raced past him before slotting past Alex Street into the bottom corner.
An Adam Marriott cross for Lynn almost saw and equaliser as Liam Hughes headed the ball just wide of his own goal.
A short corner caught out the home side but ’keeper Joe Green did well to push away Chris Henderson’s low shot.
Lynn were still not at their best and a mistake b new signing Tom Ward allowed Dan Sweeney in but he pulled his shot wide.
Lynn had the last chances of the first half with McAuley heading over Marriott’s free kick and then Marriott heading just wide.
Michael Gash was the first to test Green after the break following a Michael Clunan cross but although he did save that one he failed to punch the ball out and
Marriott forced the loose ball home to put Lynn level just before the hour.
Bradford introduced Oli Johnson for the injured Knight and within two minutes they were back in front. McAuley was again the guilty player, his short back pass allowing Johnson to round Street and slot home.
With seven minutes remaining Lynn equalised again with Marriott passing the ball out wide to substitute Sam Kelly whose cross found the head of Lynn’s leading scored who headed home his
eighteenth of the season.
With three minutes remaining Lynn took the lead for the first time when the hosts failed to clear a corner and substitute Sonny Carey found space to finish low into the bottom corner.
Bradford had a chance to salvage a point when Sweeney tried to take advantage of Street being off his line but his effort from 25 yards out went just past the post.
Lynn’s celebrations were tempered by Gash’s two yellows in as many minutes in time added on for time-wasting and then a high foot,
