WATCH: Former Man City youth Leigh scores Bradford stunner!

Bradford City required a piece of individual brilliance to get past Aldershot Town in the FA Cup on Wednesday night.

The Bantams hosted the National League outfit in the first round replay of the prestigious cup competition and came away with a 2-0 win following the scoreless draw between the two sides earlier in the month.

The scores were locked at 0-0 on the hour-mark when young left-back Greg Leigh lit up Valley Parade with a sublime opening goal.

21-year-old Leigh galloped down the left flank to get on the end of a lovely ball from Billy Knott before taking a stellar first touch and then producing a quality chipped finish over the top of Aldershot keeper Phil Smith.

15 minutes later, Tony McMahon converted from the penalty spot to safely see Phil Parkinson's side through to the next phase.

In just his third appearance for the club since joining in August following a youth career with Manchester City, Leigh made an enormous impact to help guide Bradford through to the second round of the FA Cup.
