    2-0 is a relief, I thought our inability to kill the game off before we did is the story of our season.

    On the whole we played well, after a frantic first ten mins Bradford didn’t threaten much.

    Kelly was MOTM for me, two brilliant assists for our goals, reality of it was that it could’ve been much more.

    We now need Doncaster to lose tonight, I’m praying for a Sunderland win!

    Robins has been quoted making very complimentary comments about Scannell after the game, he seems a decent player for Bradford, but I see a lot of Kyel Reid in him, McCallum couldn’t really get to grips with SS during the first half, but seemed to do well in the second half.

    Attention now turns to Monday and another must win game!

    Absolutely.

    He still missed an unforgivable chance though.

    What exactly was the point of bringing Ponticelli on at 90+1 ?

    Bit of a routine win and like the rest of us I thought the second goal would never come. How bad were Bradford-summed up by their fans cheering when the central defender got the 2nd yellow card.
    Lack of effort from them and have accepted their fate long before today-reminded me of the inevitable relegation that loomed for us 2 seasons ago.

    The writing has been on the wall for Bradford for quite some time, now in reality.

    It would have been easy for us to slip up today, these are the kind of teams that have really been the bane of our season. A pretty accurate reflection of our season, really. Not making the most of our chances too often. But, we won where we might normally slip up. Not our best by a long way, but if it gets three points it's good enough.

    That was frustrating, match was played at a training pace for most of it.

    We really should have upped our game against the 10 men and put the game out of reach early on

    Yes Bradford did their best today, particularly going forward. They will come
    back.

    The three relegated "CITY" teams from 2001 should stick together.All three have had contrasting fortunes due to their owners.

    Nope all players have to be in their own half’s when play is restarted after a goal or at the start of each half

    If Mason is injured for Monday I want mccallum nowhere near our starting 11. Brown in. I'm sure mccallum will be a star for us but scannell absolutely destroyed him today
