Wigan went four points clear top of the table with this hard fought home win over Bradford with Martin Dermott grabbing the headlines. His chip over the top to re-collect himself helped get Ellery Hanley over for the opening score after 11 Minutes. That proved to be the only score of the first half. First incident of the second half was referee John Kendrew limping off to be replaced by touch judge Bill Brown. Bradford may have been defensively sound but they were offering "almost nothing" in attack and Wigan would soon find a second try. Combination between Andy Platt and Kevin Iro got David Marshall over for an 8-0 lead. Dermott then sealed the victory by touching down his own kick for 12-0. He caused Bradford problems again later with another great kick but this time Karl Fairbank took him out and got sent off by the replacement ref with 17 minutes to go. Wigan didn't score any further points, settling for the 12-0 win on a muddy day. Elsewhere, Widnes going down 20-8 at home to Leeds meant Wigan now had a four point lead at the top.

Half Time: 

Wigan 4 Bradford 0
