YAL Supreme Division
Bradford United 3-1 Leeds Medics & Dentists
Next up for our first team was another Leeds based team in Leeds Medics. Well known for their constant hard work and never quit attitude we knew this would be no easy encounter.
Medics started fast out of the blocks, pressing high and dictating the tempo of the game which saw them rightfully take the lead in the first 15 minutes. 0-1.
Once again under the cosh at home. Abit of character was needed to settle affairs which was too erratic for our liking. Once we settled, we showed our capabilities scoring 2 in the process. Firstly, Umar equalised after some neat play from Juwara. Secondly, Juwara made no mistake capitalising on Medics keeper flapping a corner. 2-1 HT.
At HT the message was to calm down as everything was just 100 miles per hour. The frantic nature suited Medics. Once again, medics came out the block & we struggled at times but dug deep cancelling out any threat Medics posed.
As the final 30 approached; Bradford had the luxury of calling upon a superstar bench of Khurram, Mo Sadiq & Ceesay along with a change of shape allowed Bradford to finally get a real foothold of the game for the first time. The 3rd and final goal followed; a moment of magic from Juwara who found himself in space; riffling one into the back of the net from 25-30 yards. Game, set and match.
Game wasn’t fancy on Bradford’s side but lots of character & bottle was shown when under the cosh; where a few weeks ago we crumbled. 3 points. Onto next week as we face Farsley.
