Parkinson: A million miles better than last week

Parkinson: A million miles better than last week

Bradford recovered from a 4-0 defeat last weekend to fight back and earn a 1-1 draw at Accrington on Saturday afternoon.

Phil Parkinson's "game plan" was set out ahead of the game and sticking to this paid off: 'We were too open last week and we had to give the lads a game plan this week, and they stuck to it.

'We were disappointed to be goalless at half-time as we had our chances. They changed their formation after the break and were more direct and we struggled to deal with it at times.

'Then they got their goal and, after what happened last week, I was pleased with the character of the lads to respond. After they scored, our two centre halves (Andrew Davies and Luke Oliver) and Gary Jones drove us forward.'

Having slipped behind late on The Bantams looked to be heading for defeat but the "rewards" were eventually gained when they equalised late on.

The Bradford boss felt this was deserved with his side "a million miles better" than they were against Swindon: 'It's tough football as sometimes you play well and don't get your rewards, but we kept going and then we put on the fresh legs of Alan Connell and that made the difference. This was a million miles better than last week.'
