Following the 3-2 defeat to Sheffield United Under-21s, Bradford (Park Avenue) manager John Deacey admitted it was an entertaining game to watch:

“It was a great game. Their goalkeeper (George Willis) had a fantastic day but it’s not about the result today.

For us, pre-season is about gaining fitness and how we perform, and today, there were some bright spots but also some not so bright spots.

We lost Nathan Turner with an injury and it was a loss to us. We will have a look at him during the week and see what the problem is.

It’s only pre-season and that’s the way to look at it!”
