It was a hell of a battle in this cup tie between Bradford and Wigan at Odsal. The only scoring of the first half came from a Steve Parrish penalty goal but on 32 minutes Bradford lost both Brian Noble and Bob Kellaway to injury and that harmed them later in the game. The start of second half ended up being delayed because Wigan supporters had spilled over into prohibited areas of the stadium. Odsal was being reshaped ahead of hosting the World Speedway Final later in the year and thus areas that had previously been fine to stand on were now out of bounds. It took a few minutes to get the Wigan fans behind the barriers and referee Kevin Allatt threatened to abandon the match if problems continued. The restart eventually game and within five minutes a lovely kick from Mike Ford was touched down by Henderson Gill in the left corner to put Wigan 4-2 ahead. Ford soon added a drop goal for 5-2 but Bradford would hit back on 55 minutes with Ellery Hanley doing damage down the right wing. He evaded three tackles before slipping Steve McGowan over for the try that made it 6-5 after going unconverted. Next on 64 Minutes Wigan got a penalty goal attempt after Danny Campbell was tripped by the Bradford Substitute Stone. Gill nailed the kick to put Wigan up 7-6. The last 15 minutes saw Bradford pounding the Wigan line but defence held out and Bradford missed the chance of a replay with Parrish's drop goal going wide.
