'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Parkinson: That Takes Us To The 50-Point Marker

Another weekend of league one football, as the season moves closer to its conclusion, has been and gone with Bradford in action again.

Bradford actually kicked-off the weekends football with their visit to Rotherham United's New York Stadium on Friday night, coming away with a credible 0-0 draw.

Phil Parkinson had plenty of praise for his side after they earned a good point against the promotion chasing Millers, a point that takes the Bantams closer to the 50-point mark that should ensure league one safety.

The Bradford boss told the media: 'That takes us to the 50-point marker. We have come here before and put in non-appearances, so it was important for us that we put in a professional performance and we did that.

'Rotherham are a good side, but the lads were superb in the way they stuck to their game plan from the first minute to the last, and we created some good chances on the break in the second half.

'We knew that as the game wore on and Rotherham threw caution to the wind they would leave gaps, but on the day it is a very good point for us.

'Our back four was strong, our midfield was very disciplined and Jon Stead up front did a difficult job and led the line very well and as the game went on he got better and better.'

The deadlock might not have been broken but Parkinson still felt that the fans would go home with 'a bit of pride' restored after previous visits hadn't been as fruitful.

He added: 'It was a good all-round performance and I am please for our supporters because they can go back to Bradford with a bit of pride because they have gone back from here before very low, like I have been.'
