Bermudian star Nahki Wells broke the all-time best Bradford City scoring streak today when he bagged a brace.

The striker netted just before half time against Sheffield United in front of his adoring home fans to set the Bantams on their way to victory.

He then scored again just before the final whistle to secure the three points for his side.

The first goal was the former Dandy Town man's eight successive goal for the club in as many matches.

And in bagging the two goals today he wrote a new chapter in Bradford City folklore in becoming the first player to ever score in eight successive games for the club

The historic goals were reported by the city's local paper, The Telegraph and Argus, in a live blog this afternoon.

Sports reporter, Simon Parker, described the first goal like this: "1-0 to City and guess who??!!!! WELLS drills shot across Long from right side of the box. 

"That's a history-making strike from the Bermudian, who becomes the first City player ever to score in eight successive matches. Take a bow lad!"

While Parker had this to say about the second: "2-0! De Vita screamed palmed up in air by Long, Hanson nods ball towards goal and WELLS, inevitably, finishes... "

Earlier this week the 23-year-old striker had told the Bermuda Sun breaking the Bradford record would be a special moment for him.

He said it was an accomplishment he’d thought more and more about in this past week.
He told the Bermuda Sun: “It’s always good to get your name in the record books and I’ll be going out there and doing the best I can.

“First and foremost I have to go out there and make sure we get three points. And if I do put in a good performance and hit the back of the net, then even better.

He added: “Reaching this goal would mean the world to the fans — no-one’s ever scored in eight consecutive games for them before. To have my name come up as having done that would mean a lot to them and a lot to me.”

“But to play United in the league at a very important time of the season, it’s going to be a feisty one.”
