Their Young Keeper Was Absolutely Outstanding

Their Young Keeper Was Absolutely Outstanding

Bradford might have beaten Crewe 'keeper Ben Garratt three times but that wasn't enough to beat Crewe on Saturday afternoon.

Still in search of a first win of the year Bradford had to be content with a 3-3 draw against Crewe.

Phil Parkinson knows how well Garratt played and paid tribute to his saves, which but for them the Bantams could have won convincingly.

The Bradford boss said: 'We could have had five goals but you have to give their young keeper credit. He was absolutely outstanding.

'He looks like a boy but he played like a man. Some of his saves were unbelievable.'

Parkinson was disappointed with some of the defending shown but thought that Gary Jones put in a captains performance and praised his influence.

He added: 'I saw some of our players' heads drop but our captain was inspirational. He deserves all the accolades for the way he kept going and driving us on at 36 years of age. He trains hard, has desire in abundance and scored two outstanding goals.

'He typifies what we want at the football club with his never-say-die attitude and high intensity.'

Uche Ikpeazu had put Crewe two-nil up before James Hanson and Gary Jones drew the Bantams level. Mathias Pogba restored Crewe's lead only for Jones' second goal of the game secured a 3-3 draw, with Garratt making another save at the death to deny them a four-three win.
