Parkinson: We played some terrific stuff

Parkinson: We played some terrific stuff

Phil Parkinson found it hard to be "too critical" of Bradford following another home win on Tuesday night, when they overcame Morecambe 3-1.

The one "complaint" he would make is that some "rash decisions" were occasionally being made: 'My only complaint is that we lost our cool by making a couple of rash decisions at the back early in the second half. But that is being highly critical of my team because after that we played some terrific stuff.'

Of those offered particularly praise were James Hanson, who opened the scoring for The Bantams, and Gary Jones, who cleared one effort off the line before grabbing another quality goal for himself: 'It was a top-class finish from James Hanson.

'His all-round performance was good. His work ethic and his defending set plays was spot on. He is superbly fit and a fantastic athlete.

'If you were a centre-back you wouldn't have liked to have been marking him. He just needs to keep going.

'And Gary deserved his first goal for the club. What a captain's contribution that was. I am so pleased for him. His free-kick was a terrific finish and the timing was great because we were rocking slightly at that point.'
