WORCESTER City ended a run of three months without a league win at St George's Lane with a 2-0 victory over nine-man Bradford Park Avenue.
Jacob Rowe put City ahead in the 10th minute, heading home Greg Mills' free-kick, before Mills made the game safe with 17 minutes remaining.
The visitors were reduced to 10 men nine minutes into the second-half when Jordan Deacey was shown to yellow cards in as many minutes, one for a foul, the other for encroachment.
It got worse for Bradford when Nathan Hotte clattered Mills in the 90th minute and was shown a straight red card.
Rowe said: "We are really happy after not having had the best run of results recently so it was good that we actually managed to get three points and get the ball rolling again.
"We have got a run of games coming up in which we think we can definitely pick up some points again and we started off today. Hopefully we can kick on from here.
"I thought we played quite well. They did have one or two opportunities but in the main I thought we were good for the three points and we deserved it.
"We know that we can step it up from how we played today on top of that so we are happy that we got three points and we think there's more to come."
As for his goal, the central defender added: "It was a great delivery from Greg and thankfully I was there just to head it in.
"I am trying to work on that part of my game so hopefully there will be a few more to come by the end of the season."
