Of the 20 games this season we've played - We've fallen behind in 16 of them at some point. Our 4 games when we've kept a clean sheet are the only games this season when we've not fallen behind at all during a game.

During last weeks draw with Oldham, we did a bit better overall with the changes made in the back 5, but I am not confident about this at all.

Any decent side scores for fun against us, although we do usually bite back with our attacking flair, we can't be needing to score 3 goals a game to get something.

Sigh.

Can’t believe we’re going to get battered by a team named after a building society.

This is fucking toilet. Weak ref, bobbly pitch, no atmosphere and two absolutely gash sides. Got 0-1 written all over it.

Draw a fair result in the end, although I thought with a bit more care and belief in front of goal we may have nicked it, we caused more problems for Bradford then they did us but for once we've not managed to find the net.

More importantly, we've kept a clean sheet against a top 6 side and defended well for the game - We've needed this for months and months. The inclusion of of Jamie Turley and Sam Sargeant has improved us, we had a much better structured performance for once and not running around like headless chickens.

Bradford defended well but their final third decisions were poor today, Vaughan was a handful but we gave him no clear chances.

3 draws in a row now, key attacking players coming back into the team and at last a clean sheet, we're slowly getting back there.

Fair summary. Bradford were truly dreadful in the final third; aside from a three minute spell where they put a couple of good low crosses in we were never threatened. The chap playing up front with Vaughan was hilariously bad, and Ekpiteta had Vaughan in his pocket all game. A bit more luck/decisiveness/quality in front of goal and we’d have nicked it.

Pretty sure Gary Bowyer and the 4th official exchanged numbers at the end of the game after spending 90 minutes shouting sweet nothings into his ear.
