Two goals handed Bradford.
Through Hope Akpan following a counter attack Bradford took the lead two minutes following the rest after an even first half.
Adam Buxton lost possession of the edge of the Bantams area and Dylan Connolly took advantage with a run deeply and spanned for Akpan to slide the ball past John OSullivan on the Morecambe line.
The visitors added another against the run of play 11 minutes from time after they use a poor defensive header from Steven Old as Harry Pritchard fed Aramide Oteh down the left and that he squeezed the ball to the bottom left-hand corner of Barry Roches aim.
The home side then dominated play Kevin Ellison heading clearing an attempt when they might have done before Ellison and Aaron Wildig both shot at Richard ODonnell.
When a loose ball blasted home from close range morecambe felt a deserved consolation three minutes into injury time but it was too little too late as Bradford moved in the table.
