Oduor came on as a substitute but did well although the game was overshadowed by a controversial moment before the match.

Harambee Stars midfielder Clarke Oduor featured in Bradford’s eventful 2-0 win over Tranmere Rovers in an EFL League Two clash that took place on Friday evening.

Oduor, who has not been part of the last three Harambee Stars squads since featuring against South Sudan, came on as a substitute in the 79th minute and did reasonably well in his time on the pitch, producing one key pass.

Even though both player and team did well for themselves by managing to get the win, there was little drama  before the start of the game as a small group of Bradford fans had protested outside the ground before kick-off against club owner Stefan Rupp, who had written an open letter on Thursday apologising for the club's poor season.

Graham Alexander's team reclaimed victory with second-half strikes from Calum Kavanagh and Bobby Pointon. 

Tranmere's Luke Norris narrowly missed the target as they pressed Bradford, while Richie Smallwood's free-kick hit the bar for the Bantams. 

Harvey Saunders came close for Tranmere with a clever back-heel, saved by Sam Walker. 

Bradford hit the woodwork again through Pointon's effort, while Tranmere kept creating chances, forcing Walker to make saves.

 Kavanagh broke the deadlock after 64 minutes, converting a cross from Lewis Richards to give Bradford the lead.

Kavanagh then set up Pointon for a thumping second goal five minutes later to ensure a three-point haul for Bradford.

Oduor has scored three goals in 27 league appearances for Bradford this season.
