Bradford United 5-2 Ealandians
After a positive result on Wednesday; Bradford United were back at home hosting newly promoted Ealandians. Another 3 points were required which we got. Wasn’t 100% where we want to be but nevertheless positive progress towards for sure.
Goals win you games and luckily for us, they’re coming through in abundance. A free flowing start saw Brendan get the first of 4 as he was set free by Kas thundering Bradford into the lead. A sloppy moment saw Ealandians level shortly after having created very little. 1-1. A moment of magic saw us regain the lead as Brendan put a 25 yard free kick into top bins to close off the half. 2-1. With the hope of kicking on Bradford did the opposite as they conceded another sloppy goal bringing the half to a close at 2-2.
Team talk was simple. Be patient & the goals will come naturally but to be switched on at the back as sloppiness seemed our biggest threat. 2nd half was one way traffic. Ealandians constantly peppered by Bradford. Wave after wave, Ealandians saw it out. You wonder would it be our day. However, the pressure was just too much. With 10 to go; a flick on from Umar saw Brendan race through to get this 3rd. This pushed Ealandians out leaving more spaces for us to get the 4th & 5th. 3 crucial points.
