Their View: City 2-2 Gillingham

The draws make an unwelcome return as bogey-side Gillingham scramble away from Valley Parade with a point after an entertaining, if frustrating, game which saw Charlie Wyke score on his debut. Gills fans’ views of the game on Saturday.

Attendance: 18,840 (224)

“A backs to the wall effort against a direct and physical Bradford side.”

“Their number 7 was a thorn in the side throughout.”

“I think a deserved point for the character and battling performance. No doubt Bradford fans would argue vehemently about that, but 10 draws at home would suggest something wrong, profligacy maybe?”

“Usually a good atmosphere at Valley Parade, yesterday was good but not as “loud” as on previous occasions. IMO Bradford City is the noisiest crowd in the division when they get going. They`ve probably got the biggest flags in the league too, they should get rid of the drum though…”

“Good point against a team that will likely finish in the top three.”

“This was an end to end match and yes we created the chances to win it in the end.”

“Overall a terrific result and a very entertaining game of football.”

“I`m delighted with the point at a very tough place. No Team has beaten Bradford at home this season…”

“…sounded like we were penned back for most the of the half as their fans roared them on”

“Very welcoming place. Went with two young children, stewards and opposition fans were extremely friendly.”

“At Sheffield United I thought the draw was hard earned and we deserved some luck but against Bradford I felt that their goals were avoidable and that we matched them in every department.”

“Yes we still need wins but given Bradford’s strong home form and the way we have struggled away even the optimistic fans would be delighted with the result.They do not come much tougher than Bradford away.”

“Overall a good entertaining game to watch where we played some good football at times and a well earned point gained”

“Terrific result and great credit to the coaching side to have come away from Sheff Utd and Bradford unbeaten”

“the whole Gills team can be proud of their efforts against an unbeaten Bradford City at Valley Parade”

“Love it when all the “big” clubs fans complain when they don’t beat us! Bradford this week!”

“Great to get a point against a fairly strong Bradford, team looking more cohesive under Ady.”

“Imagine not beating Gillingham in how many league games now?”

“What an absolutely fantastic point TheGillsFC! A colossal defensive effort from all the lads.”

“Well Deserved Point there Gills needed that”

“pleased to see us pissing the home fans off again – hard to beat, frustrate the crowd – good signs”

“Decent point. Home fans booing at the final whistle.”

Manager’s View

“It was an unbelievably entertaining game and I thought we were first class.

We had a good game-plan, the players had worked really hard all week and we knew what we wanted to do. We are disappointed with the two goals but other than that, I thought it was a very deserved result.

As soon as we kicked off, we played some decent football and carved them open a few times.

Bradford are a very good side, they will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season. They have a passionate crowd, it’s a fantastic place to play football and they have some very good players”
